Annie’s Orphans is an organization dedicated to animal care and protection. Our goal is to promote responsible animal ownership and to assume those responsibilities when others are unable or unwilling to do so.
Please take time in choosing a pet. Take into consideration the cost of food and health care as well as the time you have available to spend with your new companion. Consider the needs of the animal as well as your own. We may request that you take a 24-hour thought period to carefully consider the advantages and disadvantages of pet ownership.
Pets are confused by drastic changes in their homes, lifestyles, etc. Their habits may change with each new owner. PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 30 DAYS FOR ANY ANIMAL TO ADJUST TO A NEW HOME. You are new to the animal and they are not sure where they are or how long they will be there. If you cannot provide a lifetime home for a pet, do not adopt it!
Animals need companionship and supervision. Dogs need to be secured to prevent them from becoming a free roaming nuisance to the community. Chained dogs are often barkers, diggers and easy targets for other dogs and pranksters. Fenced yards are recommended. All pets need a loving, secure home with proper food, water, shelter, exercise and medical care provided.
We can assist you in selecting the right pet. Please ask us about pet selection. We are also available to assist you with any questions or problems you may have concerning your companion and we encourage you to contact us.
Placing animals in new homes is a responsibility we take seriously. Our adoption program includes an application form and contract. All persons interested in adopting a pet from us must read and complete the forms. A non-refundable donation is required at the time of adoption to enable us to continue our efforts in helping other animals. The average donation is $225.00
We reserve the right to refuse the adoption of an animal to a home that does not meet these or other standards (be sure to read a copy of our “Standards for Adoption”). This includes the right to inspect homes and remove the animal if it is not receiving proper care or has been mistreated.
