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.
Some of our animals have been taken out of abusive situations, were owner surrenders or simply not wanted. Most of our animals though are pulled from high kill shelters where they were ready to be killed either by euthanasia, gas chamber or the barbaric method of heart stick. Since we do not know what kind of life these animals experienced before or during their shelter stay many of them were more than likely exposed to illnesses which do not show up for at least 3-6 weeks later. All of our animals are not adopted out until they have had their necessary vaccines for their age and have been dewormed at least twice. Puppies will not be adopted out until they have had their first two sets of vaccines and all of our cats are feline leukemia tested before they go up for adoption. Res-Q-Angels does its best to adopt out nothing but healthy and loving animals. But sometimes under unusual circumstances things happen that no one had any knowledge of knowing about.
None of our animals go up for adoption until they are ready socially and physically. Almost all of our felines are litter box trained, but not all of our canines are housebroken. For those animals that have not been sterilized it is the obligation of the new owner to have this procedure done when the animal is of age (usually at six months of age). A representative of Res-Q-Angels does check at the appropriate time and if the animal has not been sterilized we have the right to seize the animal, get it spayed or neutered and place it into another home because we feel that the only way to control the over population of pets is to have all males neutered and all females spayed. Too many innocent loving animals die for no crime other than not being able to find a home.
Res-Q-Angels operates solely on adoption fees and donations. Our vets do not perform their services for free and even though we do get a little bit of a discount the vet bills still accumulate. For every one healthy animal that we adopt out, there is always two or three that come along that require special needs or intensive care that sometimes requires hospitalization accompanied with the proper medicines and 24 hour care. Since we are a no kill rescue group we do everything in our power to help the ill or injured animal regain its health so it too can get placed into a wonderful loving forever home.
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.
