All adoptable pets at Humane Animal Rescue have already been spayed or neutered, as well as micro-chipped, and treated for worms and fleas. They are current on vaccinations and other necessary medical care. While all animals have been thoroughly checked by our veterinarians, we cannot guarantee the health of any animal.
If you are interested in one of our pets, please fill out an application above. Foster homes provide food, love and kindness. We provide all medical care. Foster homes are expected to bring their foster pets to adoption events. Foster homes socialize the pet so they are ready for their life in a permanent home.

Finding Your Best Bud We know what you're thinking
Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups.All persons must be 21 years of age or older to adopt a pet. You must bring photo identification and every member of your household needs to be present. In addition, if you plan to adopt a dog and already have a canine family member, you must bring him or her along for a meet and greet. If you rent your home, you must bring a copy of your lease stating that you are permitted to keep pets in your residence. If you own your house, our staff will check county real estate records. If a record cannot be found, we may ask for proof of ownership. Please call our Adoption Department for more information or if you have questions. We do not limit adoptions to any particular geographic area and, in most cases, you can leave with your new best friend the same day you visit us!Organizations can host pet adoptions at an event, or book the HOPE Express to contribute to the organization's efforts and help save the lives of homeless pets.Adopt a Guinea Pig Guinea pigs are gentle, sweet pets who have a docile nature - not to mention are totally adorable!

Guinea pigs also require about 25 mg of vitamin C daily, which can be obtained through fresh, raw fruits and vegetables or supplements. Making sure your guinea pig is getting sufficient Vitamin C is key, and there are specific signs to look for in order to tell if your he or she is Vitamin C deficient, .
