Cats and Dogs for Adoption: PetSmart Saves Lives
All dogs and cats, eight weeks of age or older, adopted from the City will be surgically sterilized prior to their release to their new owner/guardian. A private, California-licensed veterinarian will perform the surgery. The sterilization deposit included in the adoption fee will be applied towards the cost of the surgery. The veterinarian will give your dog or cat a physical examination prior to surgery to determine if the animal is fit for surgery and will contact you with instructions if it is determined that your dog or cat should not have surgery at this time.
At the end of the evening, Smith — who became a Softie in 2012, while playing for the Baltimore Ravens — stood before the crowd to tell them that he and his wife, Chanel, would be covering the adoption fees for all 46 of the cats and dogs in attendance. (His agent .)
Our adoption process requires a completed adoption application, vet check and home visit prior to adoption. If you do adopt from Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue you will also need to sign an Adoption Contract. All our animals receive age appropriate vaccines and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Animals not spayed or neutered prior to adoption; e.g., puppies, have a Spay/Neuter Agreement attachment to the Adoption Contract. There is a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit for dogs [$25 refundable spay/neuter deposit for cats] with proof of spay/neuter.
We do not adopt on a first-come first-served basis, but rather seek to place our rescue animals in the best possible adoptive family that can meet their needs.
HDDCR reserves the right to deny adoption to an applicant if we believe the placement is not in the best interest of the rescue animal.You can adopt dogs and cats at The Pet Resource Center, in Tampa. The center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Closed on Mondays.Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups.We are currently seeking volunteers to grow our foster home network. Fostering is a rewarding experience where you temporarily house animals in need in your own home until they are ready for adoption. Foster animals include pregnant dogs/cats, nursing dogs/cats and their litters, dogs/cats recovering from injuries or dogs/cats in need of socialization. We recommend having a separate area in your home to care for foster pets; a spare bedroom, bathroom or laundry room works great. The shelter provides all medical care and dry food. Foster homes provide wet food, litter for the kitties, bedding and daily care of the animals. Supplies you purchase to care for foster animals may be tax deductible.If you'd like to donate to the homeless cats and dogs awaiting adoption at Small Miracles, consider shopping online for the animals.
