Our Featured Pet...
is Chloe! Chloe is a beautiful 4 year old spayed female of the average Boston Terrier size. Chloe's owners tried to find her a good home on their own, but unfortunately, Chloe ran away. Luckily, a kind stranger found her and was able to track her original owner using her ID tag. It was at this point the owner contacted us asking for assistance in finding Chloe a new home. I provided her with a list of questions to ask a potential adopter and things to look for rather than just meeting briefly and assuming it's a good match. It's very difficult to give up a pet you love, but if you have to do it, 'free to good home' is not always the way to go. Have a good list of questions you want solid answers to. If you don't get answers you want, then perhaps you should keep looking, or ask additional questions. Shelters and rescues are usually full, especially with the economy as it is, but with a little leg work, effort, time and patience, you can find your pet a new home on your own that you feel good about it. Never be afraid to ask for help though!
Who We Are
Woof Rescue is a private home, not a shelter facility. This gives us the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate the dog to make sure he/she will fit in with a new family. They learn how to live with other dogs and cats, are crate trained, and learn self-confidence. Above all, they learn that human hands CAN be gentle. They then wait patiently for their perfect family to appear.
We believe that we are not owners of pets, but rather guardians to them. Therefore, there is no limit to the amount of time an animal can be in our care. It takes however long it takes.
Adopting a friend
Most animals have come to us from death's door. Some have literally been saved by minutes. Therefore, we are very careful in our screening process. If you are interested in adopting an animal from us, the first step is to ask for an application! This can be mailed, emailed, or faxed to you. The application must be filled out completely and approved. References will be checked. A home visit will be made to discuss any possible problems/concerns/dangers that may not be noticed by an adoptor (i.e. a small hole in a fence where a small dog could escape). Due to the fact that many animals wind up in shelters because they were simply tied to a tree and left to their own devices, we require adequate and viable fencing.
A reasonable adoption fee is charged in order to cover the cost of medical care prior to adoption, as well as to ensure that the adopting family is sincerely interested in the pet's best interest. Most adoption fees are around $95. The adoption fee is non-refundable should the pet be returned, as we use the money to help care for other homeless pets. Fees include sterilization fees, vaccines, and dewormings. The fees cover only part of these costs so it is quite a bargain to the new 'guardian'.
