The Adoption Process

Upon arrival at our rescue, all animals are examined by a veterinarian and given any medical treatment they require. Often, they are taken from shelters where they did not get proper care, are very sick, and require a lot of medical care. We make sure all our animals are microchipped, up to date on shots, and spayed/neutered before going to their forever home.

Please note:  The averages above DO NOT include the daily expenses required to run the rescue, such as electricity, dishwasher, washing machine, food, bedding and supplies such as paper towels, etc.  We rely on the adoption donations to help offset our costs associated with rescuing animals and providing housing and care before adopting animals out to their forever homes.
