Our pets are placed into a foster home until adopted. We feature our pets on www.perfectpetmatch.com and we also hold adoptions every weekend at Petsmart on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta at the Castlegate Shopping Center. We also arrange adoptions during the week through a pet's foster parent if adopters would like to adopt a pet during the week.
Our Adoption Process:
All of our adoptable pets are disease tested, vaccinated, treated for internal and external parasites, spayed or neutered and microchipped. Adoption fees for dogs are $200 and include all vetting and a 30 day complimentary health insurance policy that covers up to $750 of medical/vet services for illness within first 30 days of adoption. Our cat adoption fees are $150 and includes all initial vetting as well and also comes with 30 day health insurance policy with same coverage. People interested in adopting need to fill out adoption application on our website so that we can make sure that the pet you are interested in adopting is a good match for you both (i.e. if good with other pets, kids, etc)
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.
