Our Featured Pet...


Shelter Buddies is a charitable organization dedicated to improving the health, welfare, and adoptability of shelter animals, and to building a no-kill community. Shelter Buddies is an all volunteer organization which provides vaccines, medications, emergency veterinary care, and foster homes for shelter animals. We assist shelter staff by bathing and grooming animals, walking dogs and cuddling cats, and facilitating adoptions. Shelter Buddies strives to improve life for shelter animals by providing services that shelters, with their limited staffs and budgets, cannot provide. Shelter Buddies does not operate an animal shelter. Instead, we foster dogs and cats from local shelters in our homes. For information about a particular animal, contact his or her foster parent. The foster parent's contact information is contained in the write-up about the pet.

Adopting a friend

Shelter Buddies' minimum Adoption Donation is $125, which nearly--but not quite--covers the cost of a complete health check, spay or neuter, vaccinations, and microchip. The minimum Adoption Donation may be higher for some pets, depending on the type of pet and/or the amount of veterinary care it required. It all begins with an adoption application, so if you are interested in one of our foster animals, contact his or her foster parent for an application. Upon receipt of your completed application, the foster parent checks all references, particularly vet references, and then arranges for you to meet the pet. If all goes well, the foster parent will then schedule a visit to your home.
