About Pet Search
About Our Rescue Group...
Pet Search is an all-volunteer, non-euthanizing rescue and placement service that has been in Washington County since 1985. Pet Search's philosophy is that all pets deserve a second chance for a hoe and love. Pet Search has chosen not to use a shelter-type environment with kennels and cages, but perfers to "home shelter" animals with volunteers in private homes. Pet Search is a privately funded organization, relying on the generousity of fellow animal lovers.
Pet Search provides the following programs:
* Animal Rescue and Placement/ Adoptions
* Homeless and Feral Cat Trapping (aluminum recycling is used to fund this program)
* Humane Education
* Pet Therapy
* Rabies Plus Clinic- Low Cost inoculations (three times a year)
* SNAP (Spay/Neuter Assistance Program) Low Cost
* Community Service Opportunities for students
* Other Public service programs, such as the Blessing of the Animals in October
