How they receive and help animals

  • Animals need to be identified by an agency. Then once there is room, they will be taken in.

  •  They quarantine an animal that shows signs of illness. Quarantine last for a minimum of 2 weeks.

  • People adopt the animals as pets with the agreement that if the animal is no longer a fit, to return the animal.

  •  Some animals are not adoptable because they have health, behavior, or age problems, or the animal could be a learning opportunity for others.
