Rainbow Rescues Inc serves all of Massachusetts and the surrounding areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a non-profit 501(c)3 rescue based out of Massachusetts. We
are a team of loving volunteers who are attempting to make the world better one pet
adoption at a time. All of our animals are placed in foster homes. We do
not keep any of our animals at a central
location. We are committed to finding the right home for our rescued animals and
educating the public on animal welfare and animal issues.

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a volunteer run agency created to help find homes for
surrendered, abandoned, abused, homeless, unwanted or neglected animals. We
accept all animals except for large livestock, though we will provide referral services for
livestock surrenders. Each animal surrendered to our agency is evaluated for health and
temperament issues, vaccinated, and altered. We charge a small adoption donation for
our animals which helps to cover the medical treatment for the animals and all of the
provisions needed for our foster homes. Please realize that no one affiliated with this
rescue receives any type of compensation except for a lot of good feelings. 100% of the
adoption donations and 100% of all other donations are used strictly for the animals.

Our Adoption Process:

Should you be interested in one of our furry friends the first step is to visit our website www.rainbowrescues.org and fill out an application. We will review your application, process your application, and contact you for any needed information. Once we have processed your application we will bring you to one of our locations for a meet and greet with your prospective new pet. If you and the pet are a fit we will then bring the pet to your home to conduct a home visit/inspection. If the pet is a fit with your family and lifestyle we will be turning over custody of the pet to you after the review and completion of our Adoption Agreement Document.

Rainbow Rescues Inc asks for a small
donation/fee for pet adoption. Most animals that are surrendered to us require some type of veterinary treatment whether it be shots, spay/neuter, or just an all around check-up. To off set these costs and to provide for future surrenders we must ask for a small adoption donation/fee for our animals.

Adult Dogs-$250 for dogs
Puppies (6 months and under)- $300
Senior Dogs (9 years and older)-$100
Cats-$100

All smaller animals will be determined at time of placement.

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.
