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.
To eliminate the tragedy of pet overpopulation, The Animal Foundation believes community is essential, education is empowerment and action is everything. Our mission is to inspire and enable people to join the fight against pet overpopulation.
We encourage patrons who already have a dog or puppy to bring that pet with them to our campus if they’re looking to adopt a companion dog. We offer outdoor “get-acquainted” areas to introduce the potential future siblings on neutral ground. Our trained adoption counselors are on-site to assist with the introduction.
Like many shelters across the country, we use variable adoption pricing. Some animals are considered more desirable and easier to adopt. Their higher adoption fees will leave a financial legacy for other animals needing extensive medical care or more time to find a home. All adoption fees include your new pet’s first series of vaccines, a spay or neuter operation, microchip identification (dogs, cats, rabbits), complimentary five-pound bag of Science Diet pet food, and list of participating veterinary clinics providing a complimentary wellness checkup with your receipt.
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.
