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 believe in:
Rescuing dogs and cats in need at local kill facilities, rehabilitation of sick and un-socialized animals, and retrieval of orphaned and abandoned pets, so that they might ultimately be adopted into permanent, responsible, loving homes.
Providing a low cost spay/neuter program (through the generosity of the Peterman Foundation and reduced fees at local veterinary clinics) for the people of Preston and Monongalia Counties for the purpose of reducing unwanted births and unfortunate deaths of animal offspring.
Providing nurturing foster homes where our cats and dogs are provided an enormous amount of love and any necessary medical attention that may be required to insure they are in good health before adoption. When time permits, our dogs are also house-trained and taught basic obedience.
Evaluating all of our cats and dogs for temperament and personality. This helps us place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners.
Educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog or cat into their homes and lives.
Educating school-aged children about stray, homeless, and feral animals and how they can help with the kind treatment of these animals in their neighborhoods.
Working with area shelters and other rescue/humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets.
Facilitating the relocation and transport of homeless pets from kill shelters to other rescue organizations.
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.
