Adopting A Friend

The first step in our adoption process is to contact the rescue at patchesanimalrescue@yahoo.com to set up a time to discuss your interest and to potentially set up a visit with the pet you are interested in.  An application could then be submitted and if approved, we would proceed to forward an adoption contract for completion and return along with the applicable adoption fee.

Adoption Requirements

  • Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and living on their own
  • Applicants must have a verifiable income
  • All cats and dogs in the home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations.
  • All dogs must have a current heartworm test and be on monthly heartworm preventative.
  • Everyone living in the house must come to the foster home and meet the pet.
  • Applicants interested in adopting a dog and have a current dog(s) must bring the dog(s) for the meeting.
  • Applicants must consent to a home visit and a veterinary reference check.

Who We Are

Patches Animal Rescue, Inc. is a small, all-breed rescue based in Southern Wisconsin.  We take in animals directly from owners and from shelters.  All our pets are kept in foster homes.   Upon arrival, pets are spayed/neutered, brought up to date on vaccinations and heartworm testing, and given a thorough exam.  Any medical issues are addressed.  Before pets are placed up for adoption, they are behaviorally assessed in their foster home.

Since Patches was formed in 2008, we have placed over 150 pets into loving homes. 

Patches Animal Rescue, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Donations are tax deductible.
