About Our Rescue Group:

Anarchy Animal Rescue was founded in Dec of 2010 out of need and desire to help address two major animal crises in this country - unwanted adoptable pets and the mistreatment and abuse of animals due to puppy mills. Our goal is to find good loving homes for as many pets as we can take in, care for medically and place in responsible homes. After years of working in various animal shelters and fostering and volunteering with local rescue groups, we decided the time has come to do on our own what we do best - save lives! Every year millions of homeless adoptable pets are surrendered to kill shelters across the country. The majority of those animals are put to death due to overcrowding of these shelters. This overcrowding is caused by people purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders and by not spaying or neutering their pets. Every time a person buys a pet or allows their pet to breed, perfectly adoptable dogs and cats are killed in a shelter. It is a vicious cycle and can only be stopped with education, outreach and adoption. If everyone adopted their pets from shelters or rescue groups, there would be less euthanasia in our city pounds. When shelters are overcrowded we are called in to help. By us taking shelter pets into our rescue, we open up cages so the shelters have room for other animals that are coming in resulting is less animals being put to sleep.

Come Meet our Pets:

Anarchy Animal Rescue has a group of volunteers who provide foster homes for animals until a permanent home can be found. We are not a shelter and all of our animals are not kept in one specific place. However, upon successful completion and approval of your adoption application (including home visit), we will gladly schedule a visit between you and the pet(s) you wish to adopt.

Our Adoption Process:

The exact amount of time varies with each adoption, but we generally try to move the adoption process along as quickly as possible. After you complete an application, you will receive an acknowledgment from us that your application is being processed. This acknowledgment is a phone call or e-mail. Next your vet will be called to verify all current pets have been spayed/neutered, are current on vaccinations (please be sure to let your vet know someone from our organization will be calling), and that both cats and dogs are seen by the vet at least annually. We also ensure that all dogs are on heartworm medication. After the Vet Check is completed, we will call your references. At this point in the process we review all of our dogs and speak with you about ones that fit your home/family situation. If we feel we have a match, a home visit will follow, arranged at a convenient time for you and the volunteer who will visit you. If all requirements are met, it is just a matter of choosing a date when your new furever friend will be placed in their new 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.
