PLEASE NOTE: These are only a few of the animals available at the shelter. For a complete listing please visit: www.animalfoundation.com. All of our adoptions include spay/neuter, current on vaccinations, free micro-chip, free wellness check vet visit and a free 5# bag of Science Diet food..... All of our animals are ready to be adopted today! We have some wonderful animals available to brighten up your life as well as...theirs! Pets who have not been spayed/neutered prior to adoption will have their surgery next day and then be able to go home with you. If you see a pet on our Petfinder page that you would like to visit at the shelter please note the ID number beginning with an "A" and the Bungalow/Kennel number if listed. This will help the adoptions counselors locate the pet for you.
We are the regional shelter encompassing the city of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Clark County. We receive animals in by animal control, public turn in and owner turn in. Once the animal has been released from the lost/found area, brought into adoptions. Once in adoptions,our animals are ready for you to fall in love and select them as your new forever companion. We have a lot of adoption staff to assist you finding the right animal for you!
Adopting a friend is easy! You need to be at least 18 years old and have a picture ID with your current address. If your ID does not have your current address, you can bring in a utility bill for proof of address. If you rent, you will need the landlord or apartment manager's permission. If your lease shows the weight restriction, you can use that for a release. We can also call the apartment or landlord for you. Please understand, we only do this to guarantee that the animal you are selecting can stay and live with you. It is very hard on the animal to be brought back if your landlord does not approve.
While looking at our list of available dogs you may notice that there are many American Pit Bull Terrirers or Pit Bulls. Pit Bulls are often overlooked as family pets because of the bad reputation they have received. Did you know that these dogs can make great pets? Did you also know that the RCA Victor dog (His Master's Voice), the Buster Brown Shoes dog and the dog in Our Gang were all American Pit Bull Terriers? If you are considering adopting a Pit Bull or would like to know more about the breed you can read more about them on Petfinder. com. To get to the article return to the Petfinder.com home page and select Library from the yellow side bar. From there select Breeds>Dog Breeds>If You're Thinking About Adopting A Pit Bull. You may also want to visit http://www.canismajor.com/dog/amerpit.html to read more about Pit Bulls.
You and your family can help a forgotten animal get back on its paws by becoming a foster care family! The Animal Foundation needs foster families to help care for puppies, kittens, moms with litters and special needs animals. By caring for an animal in need, in the comfort of your own home, you can give forgotten pets a second chance. For more information please email our foster coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
