About Step Up to Save Animal Network

Step Up to Save Animal Network is a volunteer run, foster based organization. SUSAN’s animals live in foster homes as valued family members. Our foster parents are able to offer a unique perspective on the available pets’ likes and dislikes, as well as any personality quirks – this information is invaluable to the matchmaking process. SUSAN wants every placement we make to be a lifelong match and as such we have high adoption standards and ask all adopters to agree to ALWAYS contact us FIRST if the circumstances of life ever divide you from your new family member. Interested adopters start by completing an application and a SUSAN representative will reach out ASAP to begin the interview process!

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
