Pattycake is our newest arrival! She was saved from a high-kill shelter and is now patiently waiting for her home in time for 2013. Would you like some company on your morning runs? Well then Pattycake is the perfect dog for you. She has a lot of energy and would benefit from being in a very active home. She has not had a lot of training but we are working on that, she already knows how to sit and down! More tricks to come!! She loves to play fetch but is still working on giving you back the ball. So just because of her size and energy we are recommending that she not go to a home with small children because she may inadvertently knock them over, she has not shown any aggression at all. She actually met a nice 8 year old girl and could not stop licking her face! She was very sweet with the little girl. So please come give Pattycake a chance she is eager to please. She is also afraid of our petite resident cat, so if you have cats you can rest assured that they will still run the house! If Pattycake sounds like the dog for you please come in and meet her,she needs a patient, understanding, and energetic home.
Jack is our longest resident. We don't really understand why Jack has been here so long. He gets along well with other cats and he is very playful and active. He is about 3 yrs young has been neutered, up to date on vaccines, and is negative for FIV/Feluk. Jack is a young healthy cat ready to give you years of loyal companionship. Come in and meet our handsome boy Jack!
Who We Are
Save Our Strays, Inc. is a non profit animal welfare organization. SOS was founded by Dr. Joan Poster over 20 years ago. Our facility operates out of Poster Animal Hospital in Westport, Connecticut. Our lucky rescues receive the best of medical care along with lots of love from Dr. Poster's wonderful, compassionate staff as well as time with our dedicated volunteers. We are committed to the welfare of all the animals in our care and community.
The Adoption Process
Save Our Strays, Inc. takes our responsibility very seriously when it comes to adopting out our animals. We hope that as you review the following information, you will understand, appreciate, and support why we feel such a process is necessary. The prospective adopter must complete an adoption application before meeting any of our animals. An interview with an adoption coordinator and the prospective adopter and his/her family is required. At this point, a $25 Non-Refundable deposit will need to be made so we may check your references. We will verify veterinary references and need proof of landlord permission (if applicable). We would like to advise you that the whole adoption process can take anywhere from an hour to a few days, depending on the circumstances. Lastly, a non refundable adoption donation will be requested (minus the $25 application fee). This helps to cover the cost of the medical care, feeding, and boarding of our animals.
The donation fees are as follows:
-- Adult Cats--$100.00
-- Kittens (up to five months)--$125.00
-- All Dogs-- $250.00
All donations must be paid by either cash or credit card.
All of our adoptees are current on age appropriate immunizations and spayed or neutered before placement, unless their age or health requires it be done at a later time. If the animal has not yet been altered, an Early Spay/Neuter Agreement must be signed and the alteration is covered in your donation fee.
NOTE: As a general rule, we cannot hold animals for anyone. If you are interested in a particular pet, you need to ensure that you are available to see that pet as soon as it is ready for adoption. Also if you are approved for adoption, the animal needs to go home the day they are ready. If you cannot pick them up that day, you may need to pay additional boarding fees, because we need to make room for new animals!
