General FAQ

These are general questions. Use other submenu options for specific topics.

  • Q - What types of animals do you rescue?

    We rescue and place only dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens at this time.

  • Q - Where are your animals kept?

    All of our animals are placed in foster families. We believe that the animals make better family members, are easier to adopt, and are much better socialized when integrated with a family prior to adoption. It also gives our rescue the ability to intelligently speak to temperament, behavior, and other important information that is valuable when making an adoption decision. The only exception to this policy is our partnership with PetSmart adoption centers. Adult cats do not usually do well traveling to and from adoptions and it is far less stressful for them to live at an adoption center. Visibility is another huge reason our PetSmart partnership is so successful.

  • Q - How do I contact your organization?

    Our address, email, and phone information are at the bottom of each page on this site.

  • Q - Are you a non-profit?

    We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our tax id # is 26-4258247. We are staffed by volunteers only. No one is paid, including our Board of Directors and Officers. This also means that any donations you make to us are 100% tax-deductible.

  • Q - What do I do if I find an animal?

    You should immediately take the animal to the County or City animal shelter in your area. The lost pet owner may be looking for him/her. Look at the other pages on the "Resources" menu for more information.

  • Q - Do you take animals from the community?

    Please see our "Surrender a Pet" page for more information. Normally we do take animals from the community as long as all criteria below are met: (1) we must have space in one of our foster families; (2) the animal being surrendered must get along with other animals; and (3) the appropriate surrender fee has been paid. For dogs and cats under 5 years of age: the fee is $250 + an additional $100 if the animal is unaltered. For dogs and cats 5 to 6 years of age: the fee is $250 + an additional $100 if the animal is unaltered. The animal will also be required to have a health exam by our Veterinarian. For dogs and cats 7 years of age and older: the fee is $2,000 and the animal will be required to have a health exam by our Veterinarian including a Senior Profile Blood Test.
