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 have a variety of volunteer programs including a shelter program and four foster programs. We are always looking for more volunteers - especially fosters. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please check out our volunteer page (http://www.tvar.org/RP_WebDoc.asp?ttid=171) for information.
Adult cats are on display in the cat cages at the Dublin PetSmart and are adoptable by appointment. All of our adoptable adult cats (and selected ECAS cats) are available on our website and on adopt-a-pet.com.
Kitten adoptions take place every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm at the Dublin PetSmart, pending availability. During kitten season (March to November), we have way more kittens than we could ever hope to post online, so come on out to see our selection.
All of our adoptable animals can also be met/adopted by appointment made directly with the foster volunteers.
Each of our animals has contact information in the description - either referencing the phone number of the East County Animal Shelter (ECAS), or the email/phone of the volunteer who is fostering the animal. If you have questions, please use the contact information in the description directly. Emails sent to email@example.com are answered, but the Webmaster doesn't know the animals personally and will just forward your request to the contact source in the animal's description.
If an animal is at ECAS, they have their own adoption process. Please go to ECAS (they are open daily 11:30am to 5:30pm except holidays) to meet the animal and learn about ECAS's adoption process. If an animal is in foster with TVAR, please fill out an adoption application (availabe here: http://www.tvar.org/RP_WebDoc.asp?ttid=69) and send it to the foster person listed in the animal's description. We consider each application and pick the best one for the animal in question. In general, we do not do out of area adoptions.
All TVAR animals are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, flea-free, and microchipped. Felines are FIV/FeLV tested. Many of our pets also come with a "packed bag" that can include a variety of goodies like bedding, food, toys, leashes, and even private training sessions with our professional trainers. Adoption fees vary by species. Our fee range is $75-200. Dogs and puppies are also subject to a $100 refundable training deposit. The foster volunteer can provide specifics for the animals in their care.
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.
