Our Adoption Process...
Interested in Adopting or Rescuing an animal from our facility? E-mail your contact information, rescue organization's name (if applicable) and the animal's identification number to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All adopters must submit an adoption application for review and approval. When multiple adopters are interested in the same animal, approved applicants will be placed into a lottery, which will be drawn the morning the pet becomes available for adoption. AVAS staff will work with interested adopters/rescuers to determine the best placement for animals in our care. The priority will be placement into a permanent loving home.
Cats: $35 Includes: Spay/Neuter, free well pet check (participating veterinarians), first vaccine, and an educational adoption packet
Dogs: $75 + $10 for rabies vaccine + license fees in your area ($12 for residents of Apple Valley, $15 SB County) Includes: Spay/Neuter, first vaccines, free well pet check (participating veterinarians), a microchip (life-long registration) and an educational adoption packet.
Tax-exempt 501(c)3 Animal Rescue Organizations (as defined by the Internal Revenue Code) may transfer animals into their care at a reduced rate. Proof of tax-exempt status and a current Cooperative Transfer Agreement must be on file with AVAS. Terms and Fees outlined in agreement.
Animal Rescue Organizations or individuals forming a group to rescue animals that do not have a tax-exempt 501(c)3 status may contact AVAS staff for pre-approval of an Animal Rescue Organization Agreement (valid for 1-year). Terms outlined in agreement.
Microchips can also be purchased for owned animals for $20.00.
A microchip is a life-long form of identification that can never be lost or misplaced like traditional collars and tags. Microchips help us to get animals back to their owners even months after they have given up hope!
