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.
Adoption through our group does require an application. We know, really an application, but please understand we care for these wonderful creatures in our homes and they become part of our families temporarily. We want only the best for them just like we all want best for our 2 legged children as well. So if you want your babies coming from a group that pets and loves and makes them a temporary part of their family as much as you would, then we just might be the right group for you to find your next addition. We are not trying to judge you and your home. We are trying to judge whether this kitten is appropriate for your home. We want to minimize the chance of our babies (no matter how old) ending up without their family for life because of a bad match. If you feel the way we do about animals, you know that each has their own personality. We've been doing this for 20+ years, so we try hard from the animal's personality to find that right home, the one that lasts forever, so you see we're judging what the animal needs. If you think this works for you, then please continue on. If not, we certainly understand, and there are still some wonderful animals out there that need homes. So, please, visit your local shelters and adopt a pet. We would encourage you as well to consider fostering a 2nd pet temporarily for the shelter, so that it provides space for 1 more life to live a little longer.
Please note, however, we do from time to time help other individual rescuers find homes and advertise for them. These adoptions are handled directly through those individuals and not through our group. Fees imposed by those individuals are in no way distributed back to our group. This is totally a courtesy to that individual rescuer.
Please be sure to have your pets spayed and neutered asap. If you need assistance with ferals or strays, please contact the Richmond SPCA for info.
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.
