Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We take animals into our foster program where they will live, be cared for and rehabbed by one of our approved foster homes. We believe in this environment we are able to notice any issues or concerns that may delay adoptability and have no time limit on how soon they must be adopted. ATLB Animal Rescue knows that each animal is different and that they will be with us until we can find them their forever home.
We survive only by the means of adoption fee's which range from $75 - $350 per animal and donations in order to operate. We do not have paid employees, all donations and adoption fees goes solely for vet care and necessary items for the animals.
We do this so that no animal will be left behind to suffer, be abused or be euthanized. They will get their 2nd chance in life to become the animal that they have the potential to be.
Most adoptions take between 3-14 days from the date we receive your completed adoption application. All adoptions require a home visit and no animal will be adopted out until this can be arranged.

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.
