Information on Adopting and Surrendering a Pet


When you find the pet you want from a Rescue Group online, please make sure that you receive the necessary spay/neuter papers, vaccination records along with the microchip information when adopting before taking the pet. DO NOT meet at a store or on the corner to get your pet.

Most reputable groups have adoption events where you can meet and greet their pets. When you select your furry forever friend, the groups will want to do a “home check” for the safety of the animal eg. a large dog should have a backyard to play in and not be couped up in a small apartment and a cat should be indoors only.

If you adopt a small Chihuahua or other toy breed there really shouldn't be any small children in the household who could accidentally injure the animal with their playfulness.


Again, don't meet at a store or the street. See where your pet will reside. The majority of rescue groups have Foster homes for these animals, which means your pet will be living in a loving home environment.

If you surrender your pet to a KILL Shelter, you're inviting that Shelter to KILL your pet or live in Prison until it gets adopted or "killed".

3. NEVER have an animal shipped to you. 

Most of the time you'll never receive the animal and will have paid the expenses for "your pet".

4. Please don't leave your dog unattended in your backyard for long periods of time. Many dogs are stolen from unsuspecting pet guardians for use as “bait” for dog fighting rings or as

Las Vegas among many other high "tourist attraction" cities have a high incident rate for this horrendous crime. People also steal dogs from yards to sell to other people, without knowing what kind of homes these defenseless animals are going to.
