Providing a safe and healthy environment in which to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned, neglected, abused, or otherwise homeless dogs and cats;

Creating a lifetime home, if necessary, for animals that are elderly, disabled, and/or have a chronic condition requiring specialized care and;

Promoting programs and policies that will help to stem the number of animals entering care facilities through education and awareness, promotion of spaying and neutering, and community involvement.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption Procedure
Caring For Creatures' goal is to place as many of our animals as possible into loving and responsible homes. Our adoption process is thorough and we make every effort possible to correctly match animal and human.

If you are interested in adopting one of the CFC dogs or cats, the first step is to complete our Adoption Application. This form may be printed from the website, completed, and faxed, mailed, or brought to the sanctuary. If CFC receives more than one application for an animal, the applications are considered in the order they are received. If more than one adopter is a good match for the animal in question, the application received first will be selected. You may fax your Adoption Application to: (434) 842-1308.

ADOPTION FEES: Cats: $75, Dogs: $125. For unaltered animals (typically this would include kittens and puppies), $25 of this fee is refundable to adopter when the spay or neuter procedure has been done. In order to receive the refund, Adopter must have the procedure completed on or before the date designated in their Adoption Agreement. Refund will be mailed once CFC receives the "Written Statement of Sterilization By Licensed Veterinarian" provided at the time of adoption. CFC is vigilant in following up with adopters to confirm the spay/neuter procedure has been completed on a timely basis!

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.
