"The righteous man cares for the life of his animal" Proverbs 12:10.
We aim to help control the overpopulation of cats and dogs and to decrease the number of unwanted animals in central Alabama. In essence we are finding caring homes for loving animals who need them.
Our pets live in foster homes as members of a household / family until they are adopted. This gives the pet the opportunity to live in a "home" environmnent and allows us to get to know each pet's temperment, energy level, and needs so that it can be matched with the best permanent home.
If you are looking for a specific pet, we keep a current wish list, so let us help you find your dream pet!!!
If you are interested in adoption you must start by completing a Questionnaire posted on our website at www.sanctuaryanimalrescue.com, or at Petsmart in Alabaster on Saturdays from 11 to 3:30. A vet reference will be needed, and a home visit may be required. You must be at least 18 years of age. We reserve the right to deny adoption to anyone who is not able to demonstrate to our satisfaction their committment and ability to care for the pet for the duration of its natural life.
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.
