Gideon is a gorgeous boy with eyes and a spirit that could melt anyone's soul. Gideon has had a tough life and a long recovery!!! He is now a healthy and happy boy in need of a very loving home. He has excelled at his positive reinforcement training as he is more than just good looks! He loves to go for walks and play fetch but what Gideon loves most is being cuddled and kissed. He definitely has an affinity for the blonde ladies in his life and is ready to start the life he has always deserved! He would thrive in a home that would provide him with a lot of affection and would continue with the positive training that he has thrived learning. He cannot be around cats but would love to be with a dog who would understand his eccentric personality.

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for your interest in adopting from the Animal Wellness Foundation. Below you will find information about the adoption process and where you can meet our available animals.

Our mission is to place homeless dogs and cats into loving, forever homes. We take special care to match the right home with the right pet, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter.

Our adoption process was designed to help ensure that we select the best homes for our animals.

Adoption Process

1. Complete an online adoption questionnaire:

If you are interested in adopting a cat, please go to

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please go to

After we receive your adoption questionnaire, one of our adoption counselor will get in touch with you.

2. Pre-Adoption Home Visit: We conduct a pre-adoption home visit prior to placing an animal to ensure that they will be living in a safe environment. During the home visit, our adoption counselors will give you tips about how to best introduce the cat/dog to your home and make the transition as easy as possible.

3. Adoption Contract and Donation: Next, both the adopter and Animal Wellness Foundation sign an adoption contract and the adopter pays the adoption donation.

Puppies (under 12 months) - $350
Adult dogs (over 12 months) - $275
Kittens (under 12 months) - $175
2 kittens (because 2 are better than 1 :) - $300
Adult cats (over 12 months) - $150

The adoption donation helps to offset part of the veterinary care and temporary boarding costs of the adopted pet. Any additional donation is greatly appreciated and will hep us to continue our lifesaving work!
