Where Animals Find Home, Love, Care


FAQ's - Fostering

Some questions we get asked over and over again, so we tried to make a list....

  1. We recently adopted a cat, and now the youngest child is sneezing coughing.  We think he is allergic and we need to give the cat up.  What do I we do?
  2. I am in the military, and being moved overseas.  I cannot take my best friend with me, what can I do?
  3. I have been feeding a group of cats that is hanging around outside my apartment, and now I am moving.  What can I do?


Health and Newly Adopted Pets:
Sometimes its just not possible to know how your families health will react to a new furry addition.  This is one of the most common reasons that adoptions (whether they are our rescue pets or another agencies) do not work out.  If you have adopted your pet from us, and you would like to return it, please fill out our Adoption Return form.  If you did not adopt your pet from us, and you still need to remove the pet from your house, please fill out our Surrender Form.  If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to Contact Us.

We Will Try to Help Your Friend:
We understand that situations happen, and sometimes your family friend just cannot remain with you for whatever reason.  While we cannot make any promises, we can tell you that we are a 100% No-Kill shelter.  Once we accept a pet into our system, that pet remains with us until that pet is adopted by a loving family.  Due to this committment on our part, we do ask that a donation is made to try and help defray some costs for us.  You can discuss this with the volunteer that is assigned to your case.  Please fill out the Surrender Form online, and we will contact you. 

Outside Pets (Strays):
If the pet is not yours, but you have been feeding him, and they trust you, we may be able to help.  If these are 1 or 2 dogs, the chances are better that we can help.  If they are a small colony of cats, we may not be able to help, but we can coordinate with another cat rescue in the local area that specializes in feral/stray cats.  This is not really what we would consider a Surrender situation, so we ask with this type of difficulty, you fill out our Stray Group from.  If you have any questions, or if you would like to explore the other rescues in our area, please visit our Local Resources page.
