Local Pet Rescues

The vast majority of adoptable pets in rescues are pulled from local animal shelters.  Rescue funding is largely based on the number of animals they pull from county shelters.  There is no shortage of animals surrendered to shelters, and rescues are nearly always full to capacity.  Because of these factors, rescues rarely accept owner surrenders.  Here are a few things that may help the chances of your pet getting a spot in a non-profit rescue organization:

  • Pet is current on all commonly required vaccinations and tests
  • Offer to foster your pet while they are in the program
  • Offer a donation to help cover the expense your pet will incur
  • Offer to sponsor your pet (pay for all expenses associated with their care until they are adopted)
