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.
1.) All potential adopters will be required to fill out an application and have a home visit prior to adoption. We work hard at placing all of our rescued animals in the best suitable home possible. We want to ensure the
absolute best fit to ensure these sweet babies will be adopted to their forever home and will never have to worry about being homeless again.
2.) All of our rescue animals are fully vetted as well as spayed and neutered at the time of adoption unless there is a medical reason or they are too young to be spayed or neutered at the time, in which a spay/neuter contract will have to be signed. We would like our potential adopters to understand the severe pet overpopulation that is present in our state and want all pet owners to be responsible in spaying and neutering their pets. Therefore it is our policy not to adopt to families that have unaltered pets. Our hearts ache for all the homeless animals including litters and litters of puppies and kittens that get killed in these shelters every day, many by being gassed to death. We try to save the owner surrendered animals because they are the first to be killed, usually on the same day they are surrendered. Unfortunately we can not save them all and there are only a very few lucky ones to make it out alive.
3.) In general, we do require a fence for dogs unless there are special circumstances such as the dog being older, more laid back, couch potato, etc. There may be other special circumstances as well such as having a
dog park next door or wanting a running or hiking partner. We understand that most dogs have a lot of energy and need enough exercise to release that energy. We also want the dog to have a safe place to play in
which a fenced yard is most appropriate. We do not accept invisible fencing as a suitable option for various reasons. If there is a question about whether a fence is required for a particular dog, please contact the person listed as the contact.
Please note: Our dogs are NOT located in Monroe, NC. They are in foster homes throughout Charlotte and surrounding areas. You must be willing to drive to the dog’s foster home in order to adopt it.
BEFORE you can meet any of our dogs, you must be approved to adopt. This means you must fill out and submit an application. A vet check or a reference check is then completed and if that goes well a home visit is done. The entire process takes 3-7 days normally, depending on your location. If we do not have anyone in your area to do your home visit we will ask you to reach out to local vets offices, shelters, and rescues to get this done.
Please do not apply to adopt a dog if you are not prepared to welcome it into your home within two weeks of applying. We do not hold dogs and we adopt them out on a first come first served basis based on a completed adoption process.
Once you are approved to adopt you must make your donation and sign an adoption contract BEFORE you pick up your new dog.
Furever Angels Rescue does NOT do meet and greets on the same day as adoptions so you must make two trips to the foster home in order to complete the adoption. This is our overall policy. There are some circumstances that we can work around, but in most cases this is required.
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.
