Close to Home Rescue & Sanctuary is dedicated to saving homeless, abandoned and injured domestic animals. Our organization cares for them medically and emotionally until a permanent, loving home is found. We also provide a safe and loving home to those animals that are unadoptable. Close to Home Rescue strives to educate the public on the importance of proper medical care for their pets, such as routine vaccinations, HW medication, flea and tick preventative and the benefits of spaying and neutering. We also help assist families in need to locate low cost medical services for their pets Close to Home Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc, works with children ages 7-17 to complete community service hours needed for their school and church programs. We are very proud to have this program to educate our societyĺs children on how to be responsible caring individuals to animals. They will be our future pet owners and hopefully advocates for the next generations outlook on how to help our world be kinder and more connected to the needs of the animal population

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.
