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.
When we place our animals an adoption contract is required to be signed by the adoptive family ensuring the future well being of their new family member. Healing Hearts Small Animal Rescue, Inc. also requires an adoption donation with each adoption to cover the cost involved in pulling, vetting, maintaining and placing these pets. Some adoption donations may be higher than others due to heartworm treatment and/or other medically necessary treatments the animal requires. In order to continue our rescue efforts, we must recoup this investment in our adoption donations.
We list as much information as we have about each pet we list. We do not know how big puppies will grow to be in adulthood. Please research the dog breed we have listed to see if that particular breed may be right for you and your family.
Two members of our staff have their wildlife rehabilitation license from the State of North Carolina. We rehabilitate gray squirrels, opposums, groundhogs, turtles, rabbits and other small mammals. Please contact us as soon as possible when you find orphaned or injured wildlife.
If you are interested in visiting the pets listed here please e-mail us first. All of our pets are in foster homes and we would need to make arrangements for your visit.
**Adoption fees usually range from $125.00-$200.00.
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.
