What we provide you when you adopt
In addition to treating their acute medical needs, every animal rescued will be spayed/neutered, if they are not already, given age-appropriate vaccines and microchipped (typically done at the time of alter for pain mangement reasons) in an effort to give them the best opportunity for a healthy, happy life. Puppies and kittens are altered at six months of age – please see the spay/neuter policy on the application page. When people do decide to foster an animal or adopt from us, they should expect the animal will remain well and not pass disease to their resident pets. Lastly, for each animal that we place, we provide extensive education on how to transition the animal into their new life. Basics like crate training, housetraining, obedience training, and the best ways to introduce resident pets are integral for the success of the relationship. When necessary we will also engage professional trainers for those animals that need specific behavior modification in an effort to help our animals and their new family position themselves for success. Mental health is as important as physical health and we believe that every animal should be given the chance to lead a life free of fear and anxiety. Like psychologists, professional trainers are often the only ones equipped to transition an abused animal from the life that once “was” to the life that “could be”. Our goal is to ensure that all of our animals become a cherished and welcomed member of their new family for the remainder of their lives.
