Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We adopt locally and out of state as well. We can provide transporting services within reason. Please see our website for more information about our events.
About Our Rescue Group:We are a small rescue group based out of Slippery Rock, PA. We have been rescuing dogs for about 4 years now. We do this because there are so many adoptable companion animals being euthanized and we are trying to give some of them a chance to have a forever home. Please see our Petfinder site as well at www.lyonsdenrescue.petfinder.com
Come Meet our Pets:The Lyons Den Rescue commits itself to finding safe, loving homes for those animals that are in the shelter system. We will provide companions that are healthy and compatible for those persons meeting the requirements set forth in our adoption agreement. In order to address the pet overpopulation problem the Lyons Den Rescue also commits to having all animals spayed or neutered before placement unless a spay/neuter contract is in place (only for puppies too young to have a spay/neuter). Also, the Lyons Den Rescue will provide educational materials to the community at large to make persons aware of this problem.
Our Adoption Process:Adopt A Pet
OUR ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE CONTACTING US ABOUT ADOPTING A PET Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment, we attempt to choose the best homes possible for our rescues. We do not want our dogs to come back to us because we hope they will stay in their adoptive home forever. Many of our dogs have been shuffled around, some have been abused or neglected. We hope to place them in homes that can provide the stability and security any dog craves. You provide the love and care and they will return their love tenfold. The following is what we will require: A Pre-Adoption Application: This asks for basic information as to who you are, what you do, what kind of pets you may already have, how you live etc. Veterinary Reference: we ask for a vet reference, we WILL call. This is to confirm that your current/past pets are up to date on shots and sterilized. We will not adopt to homes in which there is an unsterilized pet (we support spay/neuter, overpopulation of pets is a killer). If you do not have a Vet Reference we will require a personal reference. Home Visit: We require a Home Visit. This is to determine if your environment is one conducive to a pet. For example a 150 lb dog would not normally be suited to a condo type dwelling. (This is just an example) Many potential adopters are offended by this, don$t be. We are only trying to make sure the home is a good one and you are a good match for the pet. We want our pets to be adopted into homes that will keep them forever. This will be completed by a representative of our rescue if possible. If distance makes that impossible than we will request another rescue complete this for us. Adoption Contract: We do require an adoption contract that is an agreement between you as an adopter and us as a rescue. Age:We require that you be over 18 years of age. Residence: We prefer you own your home. If you live with someone, rent a home, apartment etc. than other concerns are evident (for example Landlords changing their minds about permitting pets, or the owner of the home deciding they don$t like the pet you have chosen). Distance: We will consider long distance adoptions based upon the temperament of the dogs among other factors. We reserve the right to make this decision based on what we know about the dog. Note: Please understand on certain dogs we receive multiple applications, especially on small breeds and on puppies. We try to go in order of application received, sometimes we may only take applications for a short while then close them. At times it may take a week or so for us to get back to you, we have references to check and home visits to complete. Please be patient with us. Adopting a friend Please contact us to start any adoption procedure. We require a pre-adoption questionnaire to make sure you are a good match for that pet, a veterinarian reference, a home visit and an adoption contract. If the dog is too young for sterilization at the time of adoption we will also require a spay-neuter contract. If at any time a dog that was adopted from us cannot be kept by the adopters at anytime in its life, the dog MUST be returned to us, no questions asked. We can help with transporting a dog to you so don$t be deterred if you live far from us. Our adoption donation ranges from $145.00 (large dogs and large breed puppies)-$250.00 (purebred small breed puppies/dogs) depending on the type of dog.
