My story

Kit was in the middle of a country road, dirty, thin, his eyes matted shut and very sick with an upper respiratory infection. A passing motorist thankfully picked him up and brought him here. He was only about 3 weeks and had to be bottle fed. This scrappy little guy was a fighter, though, and he is recovered 100%. He's now a year and a half old and, as you can see, absolutely gorgeous. He likes to be held and is quite playful. Kit is current on rabies and distemper shots, has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, and is neutered. Safe Shelter will adopt to within a one hour driving time distance from Artemas PA. 814 485 1579

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Potential adopters physically meet the animal, and me. The person or couple is interviewed in person, a vet reference is checked (if possible), and I visit the home, tour inside and outside, ask any additional questions necessary, meet any live-in family members yet unmet, and sleep on my final decision. The next day I will call with a decision - either way. The adoption fee for a dog is $50, for a cat, $30. The adoption contract includes a takeback policy - in effect for the entire life of the animal- and the right to visit, with notice, and to raclaim the animal in the case of neglect or abuse.

Go meet their pets

We have just started occationally showing animals at Tractor Supply in Lavale MD. The big fundraiser each year is a yard sale in Flintstone and if I have enough volunteers I try to bring some of the shelter animals to show.

More about this shelter

Safe Shelter has been up and running for 16 years. I worked for a year at a large, long-running, widely respected no-kill shelter and this inspired me to try it myself. It is a small, low-budget operation that could really use some volunteer and foster help!
