Who We Are

No matter the path that brought them here, the animals have found safety, commitment, love and respect at Solutions for Animals. Some have never experienced these simple acts of kindness and responsibility. Others have, but an unfortunate owner illness or death has left them grieving. We must see them thought their time of need. From here they will be placed into compatible, loving and responsible homes.

Adopting a friend

We are not age discriminate, nor is color or size an issue. However, indoor housing, cleanliness, training, health care, social activities and so much more must be provided daily. We can only take in as many animals as we can properly care for. Saving a life and allowing that life to be neglected of any of the above, is a policy within SFA that will not be compromised. All adoptions are contingent on a completed consideration form and adoption fee's vary based solely on expenses incurred for medical care and rehabilitation of each individual animal. Every animal is spayed/neutered before they leave SFA. If you think you could foster a homeless pet for a short while, please call our hotline for more information 910-875-7244.

  Our Adoption Process

If you and your family are considering adopting a friend please take your time and find a compatible companion animal. Please take a few moments to read the following explanation of SFA’s adoption process, policies, and procedures.

You may find that adopting a pet is a more involved process than you and your family might have expected. It is definitely not our intention to make adopting a pet a frustrating experience for you. The process is the same for everyone. We feel we must represent the best interest of the animals. They depend on us to give them the best possible chance for a Loving, Responsible, and Permanent home.

If you are in a hurry we suggest you visit when you have enough time to go through the following steps. (About forty minutes to an hour or more)

You will be asked to complete an Adoption Consideration Form if you see a pet that you are interested in adopting. (You can do this prior to visiting by going to our website and downloading a form or emailing us to request a form). We will ask that the form be completed prior to hands on visitation with the pet. An Adoption Counselor will go over your completed form and answer questions you may have regarding the pet of interest as well as informing you of the pets’ history, temperament and specific needs such as exercise requirements, pending medical needs (if any), outdoor cats verses indoor cats etc.  We reserve the right to refuse an adoption.

All pets are adopted under an SFA adoption contract. You will be asked for Photo Identification. An adoption fee must be paid to help balance the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, parasite testing/treatment, grooming, housing and more. (We do have housing costs, however, we are 100% VOLUNTEER STAFFED.)

We want you to understand how hard it is for SFA to have a pet returned to the shelter because the pet doesn’t work out in the adoptive home. For the pet it is devastating to come back to the shelter to be homeless and unwanted -- again!

When we, together, take the extra time and do our best to make this choice the right one for your family, then we have made an even better choice for the pet… We cannot always be 100%… but together we can try!
