Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Our main branch is in Landrum, SC with a sister branch in El Paso, TX We will adopt out to a 50 mile radius of the named cities. This is at the discretion of the home checker for that area as to how far one will travel and if there are any fees involved in this aspect of the adoption process.
About Our Rescue Group:Our commitment is first and foremost to the animal in our care and then to the human wishing to join this animal into their family. We will work with caretakers to ensure their pet lives a long and healthy life. We have a couple of programs in the works to keep military members pets with foster parents while serving deployments overseas.
Come Meet our Pets:We have recently moved from Greenville, SC to Landrum, SC and haven't set up a viewing center yet. If you are interested in meeting one (or more), of our animals please contact us and we will arrange a meet & greet. Our animals may be visited in our rescue\home after home inspection and vet reference check. We haven't been established as a rescue in El Paso long enough, as of this writing to have an adoption process in place.
Our Adoption Process:We do NOT charge any adoption fees for the animals in our care. There may be a fee associated with home checks, to cover fuel and time. We are working hard to take the monetary value off animals and refuse to accept any money for them. They are not possessions, they are not commodities, they are not items. They are family and that is how we expect you to treat our animal friends - if you have ANY issues with that please understand that we will not place an animal with you.
We do have a contract, we do home checks, we call for vet references, we will do follow up checks to ensure the safety and well being of the animal you are requesting us to trust you with. Trust is usually built over time, to move things along we may seem blunt in our questions and \or actions, please know it is purely directed to welcome the right human into the animal's life.
If you are considering the adoption of our cat(s) we require you to provide them with fresh water 24 -7, adequate space within your home, prefer our cats to be completely entertained within the home, in rare cases we may approve an indoor \ outdoor home, good nutritional food and treats. Provide mental and physical stimulation that engages both human and animal with interaction. Keep animal up to date on vaccinations and regular check ups, make sure animal receives any and all medical attention he or she may need.
If it is one of our dogs that has your interest, we require: a fenced in yard for dog to run and play protected, a bed and space inside your home, preferably a wire kennel with a bed or cushion to provide comfort. Fresh water 24 - 7 and good quality dog food and treats, being careful to not provide treats and\ or toys that will cause harm to dog. Exercise of the physical and mental nature. Socializing dog is highly recommended but not required. Keep animal up to date on vaccinations and regular check ups, make sure animal receives any and all medical attention he or she may need.
Depending on the distance from office a usual fee runs between $15.00 - $50.00 to cover the cost of fuel and home checker's actual drive \ away time.
