NEEDED: SUNDAY DOG WALKERS from 8 - 10 a.m. Start your week off on a grrreat note! For de-tails on becoming a volunteer, email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org! WE NEED YOU!!!
NO CAT VOLUNTEERS for now, until further notice. A few of our cats are not feeling well, this is a precaution to keep anything from spreading to our healthy felines!
We want you to find the perfect pet for your family, and become their forever home! To make sure the adoption is a good match, our procedure is:
1. All family members must come & meet the pet to be adopted.
2. The new family signs a pre-adoption questionnaire & agreement.
3. There is a three-day waiting period while we review/verify the adoption agreement, references.
4. The pet is prepared for his/her new home: spayed or neutered (if not done already); updated on vaccinations including an "8-Way distemper shot, rabies and bordetella; Advantage flea prevention, Avid (micro-chipped).
DOGS are heartworm tested & stool checked, and wormed if needed.
CATS have a four-way vaccination, and if over 12 weeks rabies vaccinated, stool checked & wormed if needed, leukemia & combo tested.
To help defray these costs, there is an adoption fee for the adopted pets at our shelter.
ALL ANIMALS WILL BE ALTERED BEFORE LEAVING THE SHELTER.
We are a no-kill animal shelter committed to serving Armstrong County, established in 1969 to provide temporary shelter for unwanted and abused animals while matching lovable animals with loving forever homes educating the public on humane responsible care of all animals reducing animal overpopulation.
