About Our Rescue Group:

CURE is a rescue organization that is dedicated to finding homes for abandoned and abused animals, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, and promoting the spaying and neutering of pets.

We need volunteers and foster homes desperately!

Come Meet our Pets:

We are a rescue, rather than a shelter. We place all of our animals in foster homes and when someone is interested in an animal or two we have the Adoption Supervisor meet with the potential adoptive family in a secure location that will not be released until you are approved for adoption.

Our Adoption Process:

All of the information we know about an animal is included in the description. . . including the adoption fee, what's included in the adoption fee, and socialization. Please email us and let us know you're interested in one of our Pound Puppies or Kitties. We will always reply, usually within a couple of hours. We will send you an application and contract. Please read over both and return the completed application via email. (We do not have a fax as of yet.)

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.
