Before You Begin
We are seeking the best match for our animals. As such, we consider all applications for a particular animal and do not operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. The decision to adopt is an important one which we take very seriously. We approve adopters who have excellent veterinary history which includes annual wellness exams and preventive care for their pets, as well as immediate medical attention for illness or injury.
If you are visiting our website, we know you are strongly considering adoption. The decision to adopt is an important one which we take very seriously. Helping PAWS Pet Rescue believes all responsible families deserve and benefit from pet ownership.
To adopt an animal, you must be:
- At least 21 years old
- Able to provide veterinary and personal references
- Able to pay the adoption donation cost
As you learn about our available animals, please consider your lifestyle and how this may affect the animal you choose. Are you away from home often and will your new pet be lonely? Who will care for your animal when you are away?
If you rent a home or apartment, are pets allowed? Are you prepared to pay for high-quality food, routine veterinary care, vaccinations, and emergency care if it is needed?
Helping PAWS is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are primarily a volunteer-run organization. If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, please contact us.
