Volunteers For Animals periodically pulls dogs for other shelters in need of moving animals to avoid euthanizing healthy, adoptable animals. We are able to do this through the generosity of many people such as the originating shelter staff, transporters, foster volunteers and others who help with pulling fees, vet bills and finding good homes once they are here.
The adoption process includes an application that is completed by the potential owner. If there are multiple applications on the same animal, the animal will go to the best home for that particular animal - not necessarily the first application. Fees for the rescues animals can range from $50 to $150 per animal which needs to be cash or a check - NO CREDIT CARDS.
If you are interested in any of these dogs, please email. Do not call the Shelter regarding rescue animals - they have no information. All rescue animals are in foster homes with volunteers - NOT at the Shelter - unless otherwise noted.
Here is the adoption process:
You must come to the Shelter to complete an application which is reviewed right away. If everything is okay you can meet any of the animals. All animals are $60, if they are not spay or neuter, there is a $35 refundable deposit that is returned upon proof of surgery.
If Volunteers For Animals spayed or neutered the animal, we are suggesting adopters make a donation of $35 to help with the cost of the surgery which is significantly less than if you had to go to a vet. All of that donation will go directly towards spaying and neutering the next animal we take into the Shelter. You will be helping to "Spay it Forward" and reduce the homeless pet population.
We only accept cash or checks. Please bring a carrier for cats to go home in or you can purchase a nice cardboard carrier for $5 from us. If you live in Genesee County, all dogs must be licensed before they leave the Shelter which is done through your city/town clerk's office (typically M-F 9-5). Please bring a leash when you pick up your new friend. Our adoption hours are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 1-3; Wednesday 7-9 and Saturday 11-1.
If the cat or kitten is at Petco, you can go in anytime during Petco's store hours to complete an application and see the cat or kitten. Once a day a volunteer stops into the store to review applications and will call you with questions or let you know the adoption is approved. You can return to the store anytime to pay the adoption fee and pick up the cat or kitten. The adoption fee is $40, cash or check, and the animal must leave in a carrier.
Thank you for considering a homeless animal.
