Adopt A Rescued Pet, Inc. does home visits prior to adoptions, therefore, we only adopt to the Citrus County and adjoining county areas.
Adopt A rescued Pet, Inc. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization designated a 501 (C) (3) by the IRS. AARPI was founded in 2004 by a group of experienced volunteers devoted to saving animals in Citrus County.
Come Meet our Pets:
Several businesses have allowed us to have adoption events at their sites. The group is at PetSupermarket in Inverness, off of Highway 44 every Saturday from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm unless noted on our event calendar on the website.On our website we have have a calendar of adoption events. We ask potential adopters to visit the animals at those sites.
Our Adoption Process:
Prospective adopters must complete an adoption form and sign an adoption agreement. Potential adopters are screened to make an appropriate match with a new pet. Information like the number of children and pets in the household is important in determining the best pet for that particular home. A home visit is made before each adoption and another may be scheduled at a later date to ensure all around satisfaction both for the pet and adoptive family.
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.
