Animals For Adoption
Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment and because of that we need to make sure our adopters realize just what they are getting into! When you contact us for more information about a specific animal, please know that we will ask you fill out an adoption application as the first step to adopting a companion through Precious Paws. Once we have received your completed application we will then give you a call to review and answer any additional questions you may have. We will also schedule a home visit with you. The home visit will be done by one of our volunteers and please understand that it's not an invasive process - we just like to see where the adopted pet would be living and get to know you and your family a little more, so that we can ensure that the adoption is the best match for everyone!
Although our main focus is on dog rescue, we do take in some cats/kittens or other small animals as space and resources permit. The adoption process for these small animals may be slightly different then that of our dog adoptions, so please contact us if you have any questions at all.
All of the animals that Precious Paws takes in are completely vetted prior to adoption. For dogs and cats this includes up to date vaccinations, wellness bloodwork including heartworm test (for dogs) or viral testing (for cats), fecal test and deworming, spay/neuter and a microchip. Of course some animals do require additional vetting to prepare them for adoption and Precious Paws ensures that each animal receives whatever they require; be it dentistries, orthopedic surgery, etc..
In order to attempt to cover some of the costs that the rescue incurs for the care of our rescue animals, we do require an adoption fee for every animal adopted. Our adoption fees are as follows;
Adult dogs (over 6 months old) - $350
In rescue, we never seem to get ahead but adoption fees are in place so that we can continue the life-saving work that we do.
