It is the most affordable and responsible way to find your new family pet.

Animals from rescue groups can only be adopted out if they have been spayed or neutered and are up to date on their vaccines for their age.

Rescue groups often work with fosters who can give interested adopters good insight about the pet up for adoption. There is no guessing what food they like, their personality, or what their medical history is. They will be more socialized having lived in a home environment with their foster.

Adopting a pet also means you make room for one more animal to have refuge if they are relinquished or found homeless.

Most adult cats are less than $100 to adopt and are up to date on their medical needs
Kittens are usually more because they are in high demand and it’s recommended to adopt two kittens out to one household so they have a playmate. Kittens can be very playful and need to be given attention.
