Adopt

We spay and neuter all our animals before they go home.┬áThere is an adoption fee for all animals. Cats are $75, and dogs range from $200-300. We charge an adoption fee to prevent people from getting “free” animals and selling them to testing laboratories or dog fighting rings. We also charge a fee to try to offset some of our costs. Read more about the importance of adoption fees, here.

Believe us – the adoption fees do not come CLOSE to the expense of treating, medicating, housing, feeding and providing care for these animals. It costs us $100+ to spay and neuter an animal, $30 to get them up to date on all shots, $15 to treat them for fleas/ticks, $30 to treat them for worms, $15 for fecal tests, and $40 to test them for heartworm and parvo (or FIV & FeLv if a cat). If you did all that at the vet, your costs would be triple ours.

So please understand that we are not a profit making business. The adoption fees help defray costs, but do not cover the costs of saving lives. We receive no funding from any source other than people like you, so adoption donations are a necessity to assist us in continuing this life saving work. Please read our adoption process below.

Thank you for choosing to adopt a rescue pet– you are truly saving a life!

Featured Success Story

Featured Success Story: Helen

SONY DSC SONY DSC

Helen was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation. The home was being foreclosed on and there were countless varieties of un-fixed animals living in filth. Due to severe eye infections that were left untreated for years, Helen was blind at the time of her rescue. A4A worked directly on the case and took in the eight most severe felines needing assistance. A4A then arranged for successful rescue and transport of every pet in the home- working together with other area no-kill rescue organizations. Helen had a long list of health issues upon her arrival- but received the very best in veterinary/medical care- and of course in love, attention and play time in her A4A volunteer foster home. Due to Helen's severe health issues, she became a life-long member of A4A. She loved to play with cat toys that made noise so that she could track them-- she was fast, playful and she loved everyone. She purred and sat on laps every chance she had. She found every spot of warm sunlight that flooded through the large windows in her A4A home- enjoying every moment of sunbathing possible. Helen lived a happy, healthy life for just over a year after her rescue. Sadly, she succumbed to her lingering health issues. She is greatly missed by everyone at A4A- and all who had the pleasure of meeting her. Helen showed us all that blindness does not equal saddness or limitations in anyway. She did not let her disability stop her- she enjoyed every moment of life- always happy, always welcoming, always purring.
