Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt only to homes within a 100 mile radius of the Independence/Kansas City MO area.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a non-profit organization, licensed in the state of Missouri. We rescue animals from local shelters and off the street, while some come from owners who can no longer keep them. Our animals are cared for at our facility or in foster homes while we help them find their forever family. If you are interested in adopting or fostering any of our animals, or to learn more about our group, please go to www.animalsbestfriends.org

Come Meet our Pets:

WE DO NOT HAVE A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN VIEW THE ANIMALS.
Please go to www.animalsbestfriends.org to fill out an application. If your application is selected as a good match for the animal applied for, then a home visit will be scheduled so you can meet the animal. If there is more than one that you are interested in, just let us know and we can make arrangements to bring several to your home visit.

Our Adoption Process:

A completed application is required to meet the animal(s) you are interested in and to begin the adoption process. The application must include a veterinarian reference showing a history of good pet ownership and you must live within 100 miles of Independence, MO. At times, multiple applications will be a part of the decision making process when selecting the perfect home. An email confirming our receipt of your application will be sent to you. It will take 5 days for us to review your application and contact your references. If you do not hear from us within 5 days, we are pursuing other applications. For more information, please visit our website, www.animalsbestfriends.org, and click on the Adoption tab.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
