Why do you charge fees?  

Adoption fees help the rescue cover medical care, food and transportation. This money allows the rescue to continue its efforts. An adoption fee can actually end up saving you money if you consider all the below services that your adopted pet may have received.

  • Veterinary wellness visit and exam

  • Spaying or neutering

  • Distemper vaccination

  • Rabies vaccination

  • Heartworm test (for dogs)

  • Feline Leukemia/FIV test (for cats)

  • Dental care

  • Flea/tick treatment

  • Microchip

  • Deworming 

  • Collar 

Why do you do a home check?  

The safety, happiness and well being of the pet and adopter(s) are first and foremost our purpose for being in rescue. While on a home check we will look for safety issues, make recommendations and hopefully meet all who will be sharing the home with the new pet including children and other pets.  It also gives us a chance to share things we have learned about your new potential family member in a more personal setting giving you he opportunity to ask questions too.

Why did I not get selected?  

First, you should realize it is not personal at all.  Every adopter thinks they can offer the best home and often that is the case.  But sometimes we realize that you might be the best home on the planet... for a different pet.  We take great pains to ensure each and every adoption is the best possible fit.  It's hard and we hate disappointing people but we really want to ensure happily ever afters for everyone involved.  When you want something so badly, you might not being seeing things objectively.  It is our job to step back and look at things without bias.  We made a promise to each and every pet in our care and won't fail them. We are always happy to keep looking for the perfect pet for your situation.

Why do you ask for landlord information?  

The main purpose  for this info is to verify if there are any breed restrictions you are subject to.  We have encountered problems in this area and it is very traumatic for all involved to have to return a pet to us over such an issue.  

Can I meet a pet before I fill out an application?  

Unfortunately at this time no.  We are 100% volunteer run and our pets reside in foster homes.  When we make an appointment to meet with you this is time away from our own friends and family so we make every effort to be respectful of everyone's time. Perhaps in the future we will have a sanctuary that can be visited but currently that is not an option.
