In order to be considered for adoption you must complete and return the adoption application to us for processing. Please note we require that there be a vet reference, if there is no vet reference please state that on your application. We also require 3 personal references and a groomer reference. If you list any false information on your application it will be denied.
We do not allow our pets to be adopted into a home that has an electronic/invisible fence due to tragic occurrences in the past. If you have one, we cannot and will not proceed and will not make any exceptions. This is for the safety and well being of our pets. Fencing will be thoroughly inspected at the time of your home visit.
Once your application is approved we will schedule a meet and greet/home visit with the dog you are interested in. Upon completion of the meet and greet the board members will meet to discuss the potential adopters. Upon FULL approval to adopt an email will be sent to you.
Since we are an individual, private rescue. We do not receive funds from any outside sources; we pay all expenses. Our adoption fees vary based on size, age and breed. All donations and adoption fees are applied toward caring for the dogs, vet bills, medications, follow-up visits, re-check and boarding expenses we incur.
What the Adoption Fee Covers
Although the adoption fee is a way to subsidize costs of caring for the numerous animals, it also serves one greater function. The adoption fee will put off anybody who is not willing to spend money on his or her animals. If you cannot afford the adoption fee, then you are unlikely to be able to afford care for your pet when he falls ill or has an accident.
If you won't spend it to bring home a loving companion, then it is more than likely that you won't spend it when it is really needed either. It is a harsh world out there for pets, and making sure the dogs go to a good, responsible home that will care for them for the rest of their life is the number one concern of this rescue organization.
Please keep in mind that this application is usually our first impression of you. The more information you provide, the better we can get to know you and see if you are a good match. Be sure to answer every question honestly. If you don't, it would only make for an incompatible match and nobody benefits from that. Do not simply tell us what you think we want to hear. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us before completing your application.
Thank you for your interest in helping our rescued dogs.
Anarchy Animal Rescue
Anarchy Animal Rescue was founded in December 2010 out of need and desire to help address two major animal crises in this country - unwanted adoptable pets and the mistreatment and abuse of animals due to puppy mills. Our goal is to find good loving homes for as many pets as we can take in, care for medically and place in responsible homes. After years of working in various animal shelters and fostering and volunteering with local rescue groups, we decided the time has come to do on our own what we do best - save lives!
Every year millions of homeless adoptable pets are surrendered to kill shelters across the country. The majority of those animals are put to death due to overcrowding of these shelters. People purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders as well as people not spaying or neutering their pets cause this overcrowding. Every time a person buys a pet or allows their pet to breed, perfectly adoptable dogs and cats are killed in a shelter. It is a vicious cycle and can only be stopped with education, outreach and adoption. If everyone adopted their pets from shelters or rescue groups, there would be less euthanasia in our city pounds. When shelters are overcrowded we are called in to help. By us taking shelter pets into our rescue, we open up cages so the shelters have room for other animals that are coming in resulting is less animals being put to sleep. Puppy mills are mass breeding farms created for the sole purpose of profit. The dogs in puppy mills are considered 'product', not living breathing animals. 99% of pet stores across the country obtain their puppies from these mills. The parents of these pet store puppies suffer horribly living in cages until they no longer produce quality puppies. At that point they are killed in a horrific manor, unless we step in to help. We are able to take some of these breeding dogs into our rescue, rehabilitate them, treat them for any medical issues they may have, spay/neuter them and find them loving home. Most of these mill dogs do not know the true joys of being a dog as they have lived in cages their entire lives.
We cannot act alone and we are always in dire need of donations, volunteers, foster homes and adopters. Without those things we would not be able to continue doing what we do!!
