IMPORTANT NEWS ~~~~~~ We will temporarily be closed on Sunday's. Feel free to contact any of the numbers listed concerning adoptions.~~ We are always seeking volunteers. Please consider what a difference volunteering could make in your life and in the lives of homeless pets. ~~
Adopting a friend
Adoption of all our pets include spay or neutered, rabies vaccination, along with a distemper/parvo combo and bordatella for dogs and FVRCP for cats, all dogs get micro-chipped. The cost of the adoptions vary.To help promote the adoptions of pets we occasionally have unannounced “specials” for discount prices, but “specials” still include everything that is provided by a regular adoption.Adopters must be 18 years of age or older and must consent to home visits.
FOSTERING is more beneficial than you can imagine.Being fostered is his/her opportunity for a cat or dog to prepare for his forever home. He will have more one-on-one time with humans, and he can experience more of the world around him instead of being limited to the confines of the shelter. It can significantly increase his chances of fitting in with his next family. Companion pets can do wonders for any human. Companion pets help you to appreciate the world around you they help us to remember the wonders that we take for granted. So if you're stressed or anxious, it goes away for that moment when it's just you and your companion pet. In an instant, they can help you feel calm. They just come in and make it happen without a word.
URGENT Fostering isn't just good for the dog or cat. Foster homes needed for small dogs and kittens. If you can provide a safe, loving temporary environment for a homeless dog or kitten until we find placement in a Forever home please call the Clinton Animal Shelter at 660-885-7999 or you can call Heidi at 660-351-0472 or Glenda at 660-351-5080.
