About Our Rescue Group...
WHAT THE CAWS IS ALL ABOUT
The CAWS is committed to being the leader in next-generation animal welfare and rescue groups. We will be proactively developing a full-range of programs and services dedicated to helping people connect with lifelong companions and working with those that want to keep their relationships with their current pets balanced and happy.
On every level of interaction we strive to create positive, hopeful experiences that can change lives. Our pet residents will always be provided a healthy, safe, loving environment in either our Adoption Program or our Guardian Angel Program. Our supporters can expect to be treated with compassion and respect, and you can trust in our integrity, dedication, competence and transparent accountability.
Our Adoption Process...
Whether you are interested in a specific cat or dog or would like us to recommend a family pet that fits you best, you can expect the following adoption process:
The first step in the adoption process is to complete an Adoption Application from the link on the Animals profile. We will review your application and verify the information upon receiving it. If you rent your home, your landlord may be asked to provide a letter stating that animals are allowed tolive at the rental property. A copy of your lease agreement stating that you are allowed pets in your home may also be accepted.
Once your application is approved*, we will make arrangements for you to meet the animal in person. This interview is usually arranged by the animal’s foster family and may take place at your home, their home or mutual location. We encourage everyone who lives in the household, especially children and other pets to meet and interact with the adoptable animal during this interview.
The CAWS reserves the right to visit your home for an inspection during the adoption process via appointment.
Once you are approved, you will be asked to sign a legally binding Adoption Contract and pay an adoption fee.
*The CAWS reserves the right to decline any application without explanation, cause, or reason.
Adoption fees range between $150-$350. Because we are an all-volunteer group, 100% of all adoption fees are used to cover medical expenses for the pets in our rescue. Medical treatments include general health exams, spay/neuter surgery, dental work, vaccinations, microchip and unexpected health issues.
Any additional donations would be greatly appreciated. Donations help The CAWS to continue to care for these special animals.
