Our mission is to give animals a good chance to get a forever happy home. We have a no kill policy! Our shelter is more like a foster home then a dog shelter.
The volunteers work very hard to educate the general public about treating pets more humanely. The volunteers offer advice on, training, feeding, grooming, and much more. Now we offer affordable spay & neuter to anyone in the community.
What we do after a pet is surrendered to us or rescued; we temperament test the pet, then we treat the pet for any medical conditions, and grooming. We spay/neuter, Heartworm test them, vaccinate, our pets are on preventatives such as heartworm & fleas, we work on behavior issues, etc.
When ready the pets are promoted to find a forever home through our adoption process. Our program believes in matching the pet to the right family. The prospective adopter can do the pre adoption form online or at our office, then are interviewed, then we try to match the pet to the family. If all is acceptable then we proceed with the adoption agreement. The adoption fee is collected; if the pet has not yet been altered a fully refundable deposit is held until the pet has been altered.. Spay or neuter, and rabies vaccination are included in the adoption fee at our Veterinarn in Vero Beach..
In many cases home visits are done prior to placement of some pets.Property Landlord letters are required by renters, home ownership must be verified.
