Our Adoption Process:

We at Red Alert Animal Rescue are 100% dedicated to finding the perfect forever home for each of the animals in our care. To make sure that our animals go to only responsible homes where they will live for the rest of their days, we have a thorough adoption process.

Step 1: Submit application
Our application is used to help us determine if an animal will be a good fit for your household.

Step 2: Home check
A member of our rescue group will come visit your home to make sure that it is a suitable and safe place for an animal to live.

Step 3: Introductions
We require that each member of a household meets the animal before we send an animal to it's forever home.

Step 4: Adoption Agreement, Adoption Fee & Liability Waiver
We require that each adoptive home completes an adoption agreement and liability waiver before taking their new pet home. We also require an adoption fee that varies depending on the animal.

After Adoption:
To ensure that each of our animals has the absolute best outcome in their new home, we are here to help in whatever way is needed after adoption! We encourage all of our adopters to stay in touch and to never hesitate to reach out to us for help. We have many great resources to help you overcome any obstacles that you may encounter with your new pet, all you have to do is ask! We also LOVE receiving photos and updates about our animals once they are in their new homes.


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.
