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, CraigsList, FidoFinders, Missing Pet Network, our Facebook page, and create flyers posted locally to notify the owner(s).
We also accept dog & cat food donations and work to maintain a Pet Food Bank for Payette County residents so no dog (or cat) goes hungry! We also donate food (when available) to the Idaho Food Bank in New Plymouth.
We also maintain a free LOST/FOUND service for Payette County residents. We have also introduced our "FLEA MARKET" page on our website to help folks buy/sell/trade animal related items and to help them rehome any animal.
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 are $75.00 if the dog has not already been spayed/neutered. Otherwise, your adoption fee would be based on actual costs for that animal. Any dog not already spayed/neutered by us is required by our contract to be spayed/neutered within 30 days of your adopting that dog.
We do require that all dogs adopted have a 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.
