When you adopt an animal from CARE, you agree to provide a certain quality of life for your pet. CARE takes the welfare of our animals very seriously. Anyone considering adopting an animal must understand that this is not a decision to be made lightly or on an emotional whim. Adopters must understand the expectations we have of families who will adopt our pets:
- When you adopt your pet, you are expected to care for that pet for the remainder of his or her life.
- Adopters will be expected to pay for any medical issues that arise after the adoption process as well as any medical issues the animal may have prior to adoption which have not been discussed with the adopter by CARE.
- CARE does not provide monthly heartworm medication for adopting families. Once the adoption is finalized, you must agree to provide all regular medication and health care for your pet.
- If, for any reason, you are no longer able to care for your new pet, CARE can assist in finding a new home for the animal. However, as we are not a boarding facility, we will not be able to physically take the animal from your home until a new adopting family can be found.
- When you agree to adopt an animal, you must also agree to take the animal the same day the adoption goes through. CARE will coordinate transport for out of state adoptions. However, as CARE is not a boarding facility and we have no physical shelter, we are not equipped to hold dogs for local families.
