Mission: Adopt-A-Pet is an all-volunteer not-for-profit humane organization whose mission is to save the lives of homeless pets. The organization was founded in 1981 and has since placed over 15,000 animals in permanent homes. Through our foster home network, we provide a safe refuge for homeless, abused or injured animals until they are adopted into their new family.
Programs: Adopt-A-Pet provides all necessary medical care for every animal that we take in. All animals are health-checked, tested for life-threatening diseases, vaccinated, treated for any medical problems or injuries, and spayed or neutered before going to their new homes. Adopt-A-Pet offers phone consultations to the general public, answers questions and gives advice about proper pet care. Adopt-A-Pet publishes a biannual newsletter promoting animals for adoption and pet care tips. Adopt-A-Pet makes educational visits to schools and community organizations to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

What a wonderful organization! I adopted a fabulous dog from a very loving foster home. The dog had never had a home before, but the Adopt-a-Pet foster parent really worked with the dog to make it people friendly and perfect for adoption. He is now the star of the neighborhood! Their knowledge and instinct was amazing. If you are looking for a new menber of the family, this is the place to contact.
