Rescue FAQs

While our committment is to helping lost, stray, abandoned, and neglected animals in our own neighborhood once they are vetted and socialized we try to adopt them out all over the country.

Additional adoption info

We have a required application on our website that includes personal and vet references. We also do a pre-adoption home visit. There is a $150 rehoming fee for each animal and they are all microchipped. Please follow this link for more information https://www.eastcan.org/adopt.php
