What You Need in Order to Adopt

Thank you for considering adopting a companion animal from Charles Henderson Animal Rescue. Now that you feel you are ready to adopt, we want to find the right match for you. You are about to make an important commitment that should not be rushed into. Your new pet will be with you for years, and choosing him or her is a big decision. Please check out our adoption tips for more information.

When you are ready to visit Charles Henderson Animal Rescue, please bring the following to facilitate the adoption process:

•You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt.
•Two forms of identification. A government issued photo ID (driver's license, state identification card, military ID, etc.) and proof of current address (A telephone, utility or cable television bill qualifies.)
•You need to provide three personal references, reachable by phone & a vet reference.
•Dog adopters, we strongly encourage all members of your household to come to the Adoption Center to meet the new pet. If you already have a dog at home, it's a great idea to bring him or her along as well, so that our behavior counselors can help you find the dog who is best suited to your current dog.
•Be sure to check your building's policy relevant to pet ownership to avoid any landlord concerns.

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.
