Our Hours are: By Appointment Only on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturdays and We Are Closed Sunday and Wednesday.
All applications are carefully screened by our adoption staff. With all of our adoptions, we talk with the potential adopters in detail about the animal in whom they are interested, especially if the animal has special needs.
Once an application is approved, the potential adopter is required to go through a home check. The home check ensures that the dog/cat is going into a safe and comfortable environment and that the adoption is the right fit for the dog/cat and the potential adopter. The home check is done by a Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary, Inc. staff member.
The adoption donation varies per animal depending on medical cost incurred by the sanctuary.
Our adoption staff also does a follow-up after each adoption to ensure that the dog/cat is adjusting well to his/her new home and everyone is happy with the new member of the family.
Finally, we make a lifetime commitment to any animal we accept at the sanctuary. If, for any reason, an adopter can no longer care for the animal, we request that the adopter return the animal the Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary, Inc.
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.
