The mission of the Animal Adoption League (AAL) is to provide veterinary care and temporary-to-permanent housing for homeless and rescued animals; to provide the best adoptive situation and outlet for the permanent placement of these animals; to educate the general public in the importance of reducing pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs along with the care and overall welfare of animals; and to work towards the ultimate goal of compassionate, humane treatment for all.

Our Purpose

1.To provide veterinary care and temporary housing for dogs and cats as an alternative to the shelter

2.To protect animals from neglect, abuse and cruelty:
(a)To assist animal control agencies in the investigation of neglect, abuse and cruelty cases
(b)To cooperate with law enforcement agencies as their activities relate to animals

Adoption Policy

Thank you for considering  the Animal Adoption League to find a companion to become a part of your family.

Our adoption process consists of submitting an application, having veterinary and personal references checked, a phone screen with the adoption/application coordinator and a home visit. We strive to match up the right dog or cat with the right family because we want to make GREAT and permanent matches. This is why we feel it is so important to be thorough during the application process.

Our adoption fee varies depending on the animal. The fees help to cover the expenses the rescue incurs providing excellent vet care to all of the animals that come into our care. Our animals that are adopted out are up to date on all of his/her shots, spayed or neutered, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventative and temperament tested.
