About Our Rescue Group:

Bright Futures Pet Adoption & Rescue, Inc. is a NO-KILL, Non-Profit, all volunteer rescue group. We take in animals in need of re-homing for what ever reason. All animals are checked over by a veterinarian and treated for any medical condition that may arise. All of our pets are placed in foster homes so that they can be house trained and we can get to know their true personalities. We will know whether they get along with other dogs and cats, what bad habits there might be and if they are kid friendly. Of course we do our best to try and correct any problems before sending them to their new forever homes. We strive to find the right match for both the pet and the family. Sometimes things just don't work out and of course we will take the animal back, always.

Come Meet our Pets:

Because all of our pets are in foster homes it is always best to call and set up an appointment to come and meet your potential new family member. You are always welcome and encouraged to bring your family and any other pets you have along to make sure everyone gets along.

Our Adoption Process:

In order to adopt an animal from Bright Futures Pet Adoption & Rescue, Inc. you first must me 19 years of age. We have an application that will need to be completed and approved. Once the application is approved and a match is made there is an adoption contract that must be agreed to and signed. The adoption fees for each animal will vary according to the type of pet and any veterinary expenses that may have been incurred above and beyond the normal spay/neuter and vaccination expense.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
