Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Understanding the need for us to face our responsibilities and to work on behalf of those who have no voice, Chesed Foundation was created in the name of kindness and compassion towards helpless animals.
Chesed, unofficially started over ten years ago, is a non-profit organization, predominantly dedicated to matching unwanted dogs and cats with new owners. Through Chesed’s free “Match-a-Pet” program, not only have many animals been spared the horror of shelters and euthanasia, but their human companions have enjoyed the myriad of pleasures involved with adopting and loving a devoted and lifelong friend.
Chesed is also dedicated to helping pet owners through crisis situations which otherwise would have led them to surrender their pets, thereby adding to the ever-increasing pet overpopulation.
In addition to our adoption and education programs, we manage a “Crisis” fund aimed to assist monetarily in whatever way we can. This fund helps with bills associated with pets’ medical and training needs, helping those less fortunate or those on a fixed income to cope with the ever-increasing cost of pet ownership, and veterinary and boarding bills, among many others related expenses.
Applications can be found at: www.chesed-rescue.org
We do require a vet reference (if applicable) and home visit. If an applicant is approved for adoption, they will then sign an adoption agreement.
Adoption fees range from $50.00 to $125. for a fixed, blood-tested, vaccinated cat/kitten, to $200-$300 for a dog. This includes all care, spay/neuter, vaccinations, blood-work, de-worm, dentals when needed, and any specialist care (orthopaedic, eye, cardiac) needed before adoption.
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.
