We then approve or deny the application for adoption. If approved you will receive an email with the contract attached for your review.
Most meet and greets take place after your home visit is approved. Occasionally, meet and greets happen simultaneously with the home visit.
We require a signed contract at or prior to time of adoption along with a copy of your photo ID, as well as any co-adopters, if applicable.
Adoption donations are accepted via Paypal or by check made payable to "Anarchy Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation" at the time of adoption.
Anarchy Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation was founded in December of 2010, out of need and desire to help address two major animal crises in this country - unwanted adoptable pets and the mistreatment and abuse of animals due to puppy mills. Our goal is to find good, loving homes for as many pets as we can take in, care for medically, and place in responsible homes. After years of working in various animal shelters, fostering and volunteering with local rescue groups, we decided the time has come to do on our own what we do best - save lives! Every year millions of homeless adoptable pets are surrendered to kill shelters across the country. The majority of those animals are put to death due to overcrowding of these shelters. This overcrowding is caused by people purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders and not spaying or neutering their pets. Every time a person buys a pet or allows their pet to breed, perfectly adoptable dogs and cats are killed in a shelter. It is a vicious cycle and can only be stopped with education, outreach and adoption. If everyone adopted their pets from shelters or rescue groups, there would be less euthanasia in our city pounds. When shelters are overcrowded we are called in to help. By us taking shelter pets into our rescue, we open up kennel space so the shelters have room for other animals that are coming in, which results in less animals being put to sleep.
