About Our Rescue Group:

We were started by a 15 year old girl in 2000. We are run out of foster homes. All of our animals are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and de-wormed before adoption. Younger puppies and kittens may be adopted on a spay or neuter contract to prevent health problems. All animals are examined by veterinary technician staff to ensure their health. cats are tested for FIV/FELV before being allowed out of quarantine 2 negative tests 3 weeks apart are required before the cat is put up for adoption.

Our Adoption Process:

You must complete an adoption application and criminal background check ( you need only be free from animal cruelty, abuse, neglect charges), then you must pass a home inspection that the home is safe, clean, and large enough for the animal, landlord approval is required. Then you meet and interact with the animal if all goes well you get to take them home. Dogs are required to successfully complete a 6 week obedience, problem solving and socialization class provided for free. That is a separate contract that you must show up each week and your dog must be able to do the behaviors asked without too much assistance.

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.
