Our Mission

Regina's Rescues provides care, comfort and compassion to animals in need while engaging the hearts, hands and minds of our rural community to bring an end to the killing of abandoned and orphaned shelter animals.

Adoption Policy

Adoptions Process:

Visit Regina's Rescues website to identify which animal you are interested in adopting. Please note the name of the animal.
Call 913-284-3612 and leave a voice mail message with the following information: your name, a phone number where we can reach you between 9am-5pm, the name of the animal, the type of animal (dog, cat,). Please state your phone number twice, slowly, and clearly.

Our Adoptions Counselor will return your voice mail message within 48 hours to complete the Adoptions Survey and answer any initial questions. If you do not answer this return call, we will move on to the next person interested in the animal. This is due to the high volume calls we receive.

Upon completion of the Adoption Survey conversation, the adoption counselor will recommend a meet-n-greet with the pet as well.
If you decide to pursue the adoption, the adoption counselor will walk you through our adoption process which includes completing all paperwork, signing, and payment processing. Then, we will schedule a time for you to pick up your new pet at Regina's Rescues and you take the pet home!

Adoptions are on a first call, first serve basis. We are scheduling adoption appointments based on your voicemail message and our ability to reach you on the phone number you provide.

Due to the high volume of adoption calls we are receiving, we are not able to play telephone tag.

If we call someone regarding an adoption inquiry and they do not answer, we move on to the next person who is interested in the animal.

Sometimes animals come on and off the website. This can be for a variety of reasons and we appreciate your flexibility in understanding these reasons.

Reasons for this could include: an animal is adopted, an animal already has a pet adoption appointment scheduled for their adoption, an animal becomes sick and needs veterinary attention, an animal is adopted and the adopter decides to return it, etc.

A typical adoption appointment with the Adoption Counselor will last approximately 60 minutes. During this appointment we will review the detailed medical and behavioral notes with you, in addition to answering any specific questions you might have.
The Adoptions Counselor will determine whether or not a dog-to-dog meeting with the shelter dog and your dog is needed.

These meetings will happen at Regina's Rescues.
No animals can be put "on hold."
