SANTA PET PHOTOS FUNDRAISER
Saturday DECEMBER 7, 2013 from 11am-2pm Save Our Strays with the assistance of Pets Supplies Plus will be doing Santa Pet Photos. it is a $10 contribution for a 5x7 photo with a holiday frame.
Please consider our hours of operation and arrive about 20-30 mins before we close. We want to make sure that you will have time to view the animal you are interested in. If you cannot make our adoption hours, please call or email us to see when an appointment may be scheduled.
Elvis is our newest addition from the south. He is a very nice dog who already knows how to sit. Unfortunately, Elvis has tested positive for heartworm and he is being treated for it. So he cannot have a lot of exercise until he has completely recovered. Elvis is a great dog who is pretty calm for a young guy and enjoys the company of other dogs. These are definitely not his best photos and we are working on getting better ones.
Meet Gary! He came in with Kodah and they are bff's! Gary is very friendly and affectionate. We would love for them to find a home together!
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!
