Our Featured Pet For SEPTEMBER 2015...Bandit-Hound/beagle mix-approx 2 years old
Our dogs and cats need homes! Give the gift of love to a homeless pet. Please remember that puppies and kittens are great, but we also have some wonderful large, adult dogs and cats who need love too. Please help us to rehome these terrific pets so they too have something to celebrate in this new year! We would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to our veterinary clinic for providing the quickest and best care possible to our pets. Our pets thank you and so do we! It takes a special person to help those in need and because of your efforts, lives have been saved and there are happy endings!
Who We Are
We are a small, private, family operated rescue providing services to the tri-county area. We are extremely small at this time. We are in need of foster homes in this area! Our goal is to place as many pets in forever homes as possible and educate our community about the importance of spaying/neutering and routine healthcare: such as yearly vaccinations, once-a-year heartworm testing and monthly heartworm prevention and flea control. We also stress the importance of microchipping your pets so that they can always find their way home and NOT have to endure the horrible fate awaiting them at the shelter!
Adopting a friend
We do require an adoption application to be completed prior to adoption. Our adoption fee for of our dogs is $150 and up. and most of our cats can be adopted for $100. These fees are for fully vetted dogs and cats. We do offer our pets on a spay/neuter contract at a discounted rate. If you choose to take a pet on contract(with the discount), the cost of the spay/neuter becomes your responsibilty. You may opt to pay the "fully vetted" adoption fee and take the dog or cat to OUR vet where your surgery will be covered under the fee.(Please refer to our contract or ask us if you have any questions about our adoption policy or procedure)Due to limited surgery slots available, time, and the number of pets needing to be altered, we may not be able to get your pet spayed/neutered in a timely fashion....this is the reason for the contract. If possible, all of our pets will be completely vetted prior to going to their new homes. This includes spaying/neutering, initial exam,age appropriate vaccinations,heartworm(dogs) and intestinal parasite testing and control. We also strive to have all of our dogs microchipped prior to going to their new homes. Microchipping is valuable to both the pet and the new owner. NOTE:ALL rescues will be spayed/neutered either by us or through the contract. SPAYING AND NEUTERING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US AND THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF OUR PETS! WE REQUIRE THAT OUR PETS BE ALTERED SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ADOPT FROM US.We want our pets to be in the best physical condition as possible prior to being adopted out and we want you to take home a happy, healthy pet. We operate on a first come, first serve basis and do NOT hold pets without a deposit. Deposits are accepted to hold a particular pet and are non-refundable without extenuating circumstances. We do NOT give refunds for any reason so please think adoption through before taking a pet home. Due to several unfortunate circumstances, we now will ONLY accept CASH as payment for our adoption fees. Please keep this in mind when coming to pick up your new family member. We wish you all of the best in your efforts to find your perfect match!
