Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We do not foster out any animals; we keep all animals until a new home is found, no matter how long it takes. All animals that are brought in as strays are kept a minimum of 30 days before we adopt them out. During that 30 day period, we post the dog on our website and our Facebook page, and when appropriate, we post on CraigsList, FidoFinders, Missing Pet Network, and also create flyers posted locally to notify the owner(s).
We maintain a Pet Food Bank and accept dog & cat food donations all year long for Payette County residents so that no dog (or cat) goes hungry!
We maintain a free LOST/FOUND service for Payette County residents using our FACEBOOK rescue page. We have a huge network of like minded folks and we have been able to reunite dogs & owners within 30 minutes of posting information.
We also help to educate kids about how to care for their pets and explain why there is a need for animal rescues by hosting them for school projects and for Boy & Girl Scout meetings.
Basic adoption fees start at $75.00 if the dog has already been spayed/neutered. Otherwise, the adoption fee would be based on actual veterinarian costs for that animal. All dogs will be spayed/neutered and brought up to date on all vaccinations prior to adoption.
We do require that all dogs adopted have an adequately fenced yard or secured area, at least initially during their first several months with you while they bond with you, your family and their new surroundings.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
