We are one of the few rescue organizations that will accept animals from the community.* * " We must have space in one of our foster families, the cat or dog must get along with other animals and we require a $250 to $2000 donation for cats and dogs to off set the veterinary costs we incur. In addition, if your animal is un-altered we require an additional $100 alteration fee. We use Foster Families exclusively. We do this by choice because we believe the animals are happier, better socialized and ultimately more adoptable by interacting with families and their pets. We do hold regular adoption hours at our weekend adoption sites and are available by appointment.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We hold adoption events every weekend in the East Bay. We also particpate in numerous community events throughout the year. We also offer private appointments to potential adopters. Please visit our web site at www.ebarr.org or call us at 925-429-2785 for our weekly adoption locations.
Our Adoption Process...
The cost to adopt a pet is typically $300 for dogs and $175 for cats*. We provide an extensive vet package for all EBARR animals. All animals are seen by our vet and provided the following: Alteration Vaccinations Flea Treatment Stool Sample Test Deworming A general health exam, where any and all issues are addressed and treated. In addition for cats and kittens we test for Leukemia and Aids. These services have an average retail value of over $800. All animals adopted from us come with a receipt, listing all services provided from our veterinarian. *Adoption fee's may be higher depending on the cost incurred for each animal in our care. We require all potential adopters to complete an application, which must be approved. An agreement also must be read and signed.
