Adopting A Friend
Thank you so much for your interest in one of our rescued pets! All of Out of Harm's Way adoptable pets are fostered in our rescuers' personal homes. Please contact the foster parent for the pet you are interested in via the email address documented in the pet's listing.
Your rescuer will most likely require an adoption fee with your adoption so that they may cover the inevitable costs involved in pulling, vetting, maintaining, and placing these needy dogs. Each new rescue dog requires a hefty financial outlay. Adoption fees enable us to continue our rescue efforts by supporting ongoing expenses and provide reimbursement for the cost of the spay/neuter, microchipping, and any veterinary care required prior to placement, and in most instances, even travel costs.
In all cases, the expenses related to a particular dog will be covered by the set adoption fee. While the adoption fees may seem higher for some dogs, please remember that our members have invested tons of time, effort, and money into all these dogs. They simply must recoup this investment in order to continue rescuing needy animals. You may also consider that if a higher adoption fee is beyond your means, you may need to consider a pet which does not require as much care and expense. However, keep in mind, the normal care and upkeep of any pet requires an ongoing financial outlay.
Who We Are
Out of Harm's Way is a network of 100+ independent rescuers who network together to pull, transport, foster, and rehome disadvantaged pets. Our mission is to improve the lives of homeless, abandoned, neglected, and abused pets through our rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing efforts. We endeavor to remove them from harm‘s way by pulling them from kill shelters, taking them in through owner surrenders, providing for their immediate medical needs, evaluating their behavioral and social needs, then finding suitable placements for them so that they may live out the remainder of their lives happy, healthy, and well loved. We seek to show all these animals the love and respect they deserve that comes through humane care, heartfelt compassion, and the touch of human kindness.
When our dogs are placed, their rescue home requires an adoption contract to be signed by the adoptive family. We hold this as a legal and binding contract between the rescuer and the adoptive family insuring the future well being of their new family member.
