About Companion Animals Network (CAN) CAN is committed to assisting homeless animals achieve health, happiness and placement into loving homes. We do not assist pet owners in placement or re-homing of their animals because CAN encourages and promotes lifelong relationships. CAN recognizes that some people are not willing or able to provide a lifelong commitment to their companion animals. Suggestions for companion animal behavioral concerns and rehoming are available on the internet, please check the following sites:

Adopting a Friend

We ask all potential adopters to complete an Adoption Application. A representative from CAN may do a home visit to meet all member of your household. The final stop in the process is the Adoption Agreement. An adoption fee helps pay for vaccinations, appropriate testing (heartworm for dogs and feline leukemia/FIV for cats) and spaying/neutering for all animals that are at least 6 months of age. If you are adopting a kitten or puppy that is too young to be spayed/neutered, we require a commitment that you will have the animal altered when s/he reaches 6 months of age. CAN is not a shelter. Our adoptable animals are housed in loving foster homes so that their personality, temperament and needs can be assessed.
