Families considering pet adoption have a big decision to make… after all, adopting a pet is a commitment that can last over 15 years. Animal Hope was founded on the principle that a pet adoption is not like buying a car. A companion animal is not a handbag or a pair of shoes, they’re someone with whom you share your life and home.
What Does Animal Hope Do
Animal Hope was founded to help “second chance” animals, companion animals that need behavioral or medical care before being placed in a forever home. Municipal animal shelters have come a long way in the last 20 years… Adoption programs and partnerships with large organizations like Petsmart charities have helped find homes for thousands more pets per year than previously.
Even with the progress that has been made, there are many pets that slip through the cracks due to medical or behavioral issues. Heartworm positive dogs, animals with traumatic injuries, and companions in need of some training or behavioral correction are all cases that municipal shelters generally do not have the time or resources to place.
That is where Animal Hope steps in.
Our Pet Adoption Process
Through our partnership with Animal Hospital Southwest, we are able to get injured and sick animals medical treatment that enables them to find homes. All of our animals receive blood and fecal tests that screen for bloodborne and intestinal parasites and establish baseline figures for immune systems, liver and kidney function. They are also spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and current on heartworm prevention, and we will activate a free 30 day insurance policy so that you have a worry free month as your companion settles in to your home.
Animal Hospital Southwest provides free wellness exams to Animal Hope adoptions, so that any questions you might have will be answered.
