Compassion In Action is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We're based in Northeast PA, but we frequently have animals for adoption in the Winston Salem area of North Carolina.
We require an adoption application, an adoption contract, and usually a home visit.
Fees are generally $75-$125 for cats and $200 for dogs. The adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccinations, spaying or neutering, worming, flea/tick treatment, microchip, and any care deemed necessary by a veterinarian.
We do allow out-of-area and out-of-state adoptions if we're able to verify references and/or arrange for a local rescue to conduct a home visit.
We may be able to arrange for transportation between PA and NC.
All animals live in foster homes, so an appointment is required to meet a pet.
By living with a pet in a home-like environment, we're better able to ascertain each animal's temperament, facilitate training, and identify any health or behavior problems a pet may have.
