Adoption Policy

We are a very small, non-profit group of pet lovers, run by a Veterinarian, dedicated to saving the lives of homeless and unwanted animals. We rescue cats and dogs and keep them in our own homes until we can find permanent homes. We believe that this practice of fostering our animals helps us to understand the personality and needs of each pet and then match that pet to the right family.

All of our pets are given a full examination by our Vet, have been spayed or neutered and are up-to-date on vaccinations. We do personally deliver each pet to their adopter's home to help assist with getting the new pet settled in. So please understand that we need to restrict our adoptions to the Pittsburgh and surrounding counties area. Generally, our adoption fee is $250 - $400, including all the medical treatments. There are times, however, when circumstances may cause us to ask more or less for a particular pet.

Each of our foster homes takes an application from a potential adopter. This can be done on the telephone by calling the Critter Care Adoptions line at 724-538-8494 or by calling the adoptive home directly at the number provided on the pet profile.

We come to know and love each and every pet we rescue and we expect our adoptive homes to likewise love and keep their pets as members of the family. We ask for veterinary references and will ask for an OK from your landlord if you are a renter. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ADOPTION TO ANYONE FOR ANY REASON.

Since all of our pets are kept in foster homes, the location of the particular pet you are interested in may vary. We ask you to understand that we need to complete an application before you may come to visit the pet. We are available by appointment and work very hard to make ourselves as available as possible to potential adoptive families.
