When you begin looking for an animal shelter to work with, you will find that most of these groups do rely on their hard working volunteers and support from the local community to operate. You will also find a wide variety of animals available through these shelters. Many animal shelters handle all types of animals and you will find kittens, puppies, and even older pets available for adoption.
Animal shelters do a good job of screening animals before adopting them out to new homes. They also screen potential pet owners. IF you find a pet offered through an animal shelter, you will be asked to sign a contract saying that you agree to care for the pet long term. You will also be asked several questions about your home, your children and other pets you may have. This is not to be noseyit is simply to help match an owner with the right pet. If the animal suffers from a medical condition, such as diabetes, the new owners know this up front before adopting. Having the animals health history at the time of adoption helps the animal find a permanent home.
When you choose a pet from an animal shelter, be prepared to go through an interview and application process. The organization wants to know these pets will be well cared for the long term. You will probably be asked about other pets you may have, the age of your children, the size of your yard. This is to help match the pet with the right owner. Adoption fees vary by each shelter, but you can expect to pay $100-$250 for a rescued animal. These groups do not make a profit. These fees cover the cost of the animal while it was in the care of the animal shelter. This adoption fee usually covers vaccinations, medical exams, spaying, and neutering.
