Once you see a pet that you're interested in, submit an application via the adoption application link.
Once your application is received, it will be reviewed. This consists of a brief phone conversation, so please include your phone number.
If both the application and phone interview go well, a meet and greet is scheduled with existing dogs and all family members present.
If all parties choose to move forward, organization will deliver pet to the new home for the best optimal transition for the dog.
An adoption contract is reviewed and signed by all parties.
Adoption fee is exchanged. Fee includes: training, vaccinations, microchip and spay/neuter procedure.
Pawsitive Change Foundation is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals in our surrounding community. We rescue a variety of animals, and actively search for their forever homes. This is provided we have a foster home available. We take in dogs from local shelters, strays and owner surrenders. Our mission is to educate, empower and support dog owners/adopters, shelters and rescues about the rescue community, process and the power behind choosing and deciding to commit to your dog rather than surrender it to a rescue or shelter. Dogs that come through our organization are fully trained before being adopted out.
Pawsitive Change is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our tax ID # is: 83-4231556 . Your donations are fully tax deductible and fund our operations and help pay our vet expenses.
Each dog that comes to us has been updated on shots, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Many of our dogs have also been treated for various medical conditions including mange, heart worms, broken bones, neurological issues, etc. One of our dogs can take anywhere from one month to one year to get ready for adoption and the cost for the dogs we take on can range from $150 to several thousand dollars. We take on dogs from shelters that are set to be euthanized for various reasons, including simply that they've been there too long, or they have a medical condition that precludes them from adoption to the public, making them "rescue only." This means only a rescue can pull them from the shelter, but also leaves us to be responsible for any costs for things that the dog requires. Dogs that come through our program are fully trained with a minimum of a 3 week board and train at the cost of $3,500, however our adoption fees remain low and tax deductible.
We also take on strays and incur the cost of having them vaccinated, spayed/neutered, trained and microchipped. We take on owner surrenders, dogs who owners can no longer provide care. However, this is after thorough evaluation and consultation with owners in efforts for them to keep their dog in the home. We insure a safe house for all of the dogs that we take on and provide all needed supplies for the foster homes that care for them until they are to be adopted. We also insure that they never end up in a shelter.
We do not have a physical location, so all meet and greets are by appointment only.
