The primary purpose of Grateful Paws is to rescue, provide foster care and place into adopted homes domesticated or social animals that were given up or abandoned by their owners, born outside or in life- threatening danger.
The secondary purpose of Grateful Paws is to provide medical care to critically injured cats and dogs that are not domesticated or social and release them back to their community after they have properly healed from their injury.
Through both of these purposes, Grateful Paws will aim to reduce the pet population by neutering and spaying all animals under their care, regardless of socialization status.
1. Submit Application
After we receive your application, we will set up a virtual interview/homecheck to meet you and make sure your home is safe for animals.
3. Meet the Pet
Depending on where you live and where the pet is fostered, you can either meet the animal virtually or in-person.
4. Sign Adoption Contract
Once you're approved as an adopter and you're 100% the animal is the one for you, we send you an adoption contract to sign.
5. Pay Fee
Once the adoption contract is signed, we request the adoption fee. We collect adoption fees via Venmo, PayPal, cash or check.
6. Take the Pet Home
Once the contract is signed and the fee is paid, it's time for you to bring your new pet home!
We take time to get to know you and what you're looking for in your next best friend. Our interview process is extensive. Our relationship doesn't end at adoption day - we are here for any questions or concerns along the way!
