About Animal Rescue Friends Network Inc.
About Our Rescue Group...
Hernando County Animal Control's Friends is a group volunteers who network the animals at the shelter to improve the adoption rates. We do not work for or at the shelter. Our goal is to provide the public with more access and information about the shelter and the animals who are housed there. We take pictures of the animals, advocate for their well-being, generate publicity fo them, and offer anecdotes we have about some of the animals.
As a rescue group, we are Animal Rescue Friends Network Inc. We primarily rescue animals from Hernando County Animal Services and other local shelters to save their lives and find them forever homes.
Come Meet Our Pets...Our rescue is a foster home based rescue. Please contact us if you are interested in meeting one of our animals. We can either start the application process, or tell you the next location we will be for an adoption event. You may meet some of the animals available for adoption there before starting the application process.
Our Adoption Process...
Our fees are kept as low as possible to get animals vetted and re-homed into loving families as quickly as possible. We require an application. Once the application is approved, we perform a vet verification to make sure your pets are spayed/neutered, current on core vaccinations, and your other dogs are on heartworm preventative. We also confirm home ownership or a landlord approval. Finally, we do a home visit/meet and greet with the animal in your home. Once the home visit is approved you will be offered an adoption contract.
