Rescue is only a bandaid on the overpopulation problem. Grove City Area Pet Rescue has limited space and funds, so unfortunately we can't help all the animals in need in our area.
By altering your pets, you are helping us. Please spread the word and encourage your friends, neighbors and relatives to do the same.
If you don't think you can afford it, please e-mail us or give us a call. Not all vet's charge the same. We would be happy to let you know of some vets and clinics that are reasonably priced.
Currently Grove City Area Pet Rescue is not taking anymore cats in the forseeable future. They are just too difficult to place and we feel that our efforts are better spent doing spay/neuter clinics. We will continue to take small breed dogs and puppies (small, medium and large breed) on a very limited basis.
Most people find a stray cat and then wait until it has kittens before they decide to do something about it. The time to do something about it is when the cat shows up, especially if it's a female. I've only adopted out a couple cats in the past few months. There are just too many out there and not enough responsible owners.
There are vets that are reasonably priced and there are also affordable programs out there. Please help by getting your stray cats spayed or neutered and then try to find them a home. One person cannot do it all and I need your help. Dropping an unaltered cat or kitten off at a farm is not the solution. If you need help getting a cat altered, please call but at the present time we are not taking in any new foster cats or kittens.
Grove City Area Pet Rescue is a no-kill, non-profit (501c3) organization helping stray/unwanted cats and dogs find new loving homes. We hope to start a spay/neuter program in the future in hopes of reducing the litter problem in our area. Our goal is to help as many animals as we can in Grove City and surrounding communities. There is a severe overpopulation of pets in this area and many are abandoned or surrendered by their owners. A large number of these innocent animals end up in our local high-kill shelter where they are euthanized in the gas chamber.
The adoption fee for puppies and dogs includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming and flea treatment (Advantage or Frontline), spay/neuter and heartworm testing (dogs 1 year of age or older).
The adoption fee for kittens and cats includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, flea treatment (Advantage or Frontline) and the test for FIV/FeLV. For a short period of time, we did spay/neuter contracts for young puppies and kittens. We no longer do this. All the pets at GCAPR will be altered before they are placed. No exceptions.
All people who adopt a pet from GCAPR must sign a contract. If the adoption doesn't work out, the dog or cat must be returned to us. We prefer to adopt to homes within a 100 mile radius of Grove City, PA but will sometimes make an exception. We do not ship or transport pets to their new homes. You must pick the animal up in person. Also, you must be at least 21 years of age to adopt a pet.
