Mission-To be a voice for the voiceless by advocating for animal welfare with the goal of finding permanent, caring homes for the animals under the care of UCHS. To provide a safe haven for the abused, neglected and unwanted animals of our community. Vision-Decrease the number of strays and abandoned in Union County by encouraging spay and neuters and promoting animal adoptions in our area. Increase dependable and local fosters to help care for our animals. Provide medical care, socialization and a safe environment for our animals. Network with rescues in and outside Union County in an effort to place them in permanent loving homes.
Local:Adoption applications are required and references are checked. If an application is approved a home visit is scheduled with a meet and greet. If the meet and greet goes well the animal is left at the home for a 30 day trial period. During the 30 days we check in regularly. After 30 days, we complete the adoption process with an adoption contract. Before the adoption contract is signed we make sure everyone is up to date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and heartworm negative.
Out of State: Adoption applications are required and references are checked. Once an application is approved, we will contact the applicant and discuss transportation options. Adopter is required to pay all transportation fees along with adoption fees. All fur babies will be completely vetted before leaving UCHS. This includes: spay/neuter(unless the fur babies are to young and arrangements have been made with adopter), updated vaccinations, neg heart worm test (unless other arrangements have been made with adopter).
