Adoption Procedures

There is a $40 NON-REFUNDABLE FEE for all animals. If the animal is not spayed or neutered there is a $35 REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT upon proof of surgery. An adoption application must be filled out at the Shelter by the person wishing to adopt the animal. Once the application has been reviewed and approved the potential adopter may visit and meet any of the animals.

If you live in Genesee County, all dogs must be licensed BEFORE leaving the Shelter. Please note that public offices that license dogs are not open on the weekends. All dogs must leave the Shelter on a leash. Please bring a leash.

Vaccinations

All animals older than 3 months of age are given rabies vaccine. Unless there is proof of a prior rabies vaccine, the vaccine is good for one year. All animals are given at least one dose of deworming medication. All dogs receive a parvo/distemper vaccine which is good for one year.

Spay It Forward!

Volunteers For Animals has paid for the animals to be spayed or neutered before they are adopted. Please consider making a donation towards our spay/neuter program. 100% of your donation will be used to spay or neuter animals from Genesee County. Donations are tax deductible!

Before You Adopt

You may want to take the time to read the Dog Adoption Bible provided free to the public by Mike Rogers. You may download it, share it and/or print it at no charge. It is specifically written for those who are adopting a dog for the first time but it can be helpful for everyone. The book was written to help keep shelter dogs in great homes which is what we all want to see.

 

 

Skeeter

Pit bull
2 Year Old/Male

Skeeter has come so far in such a short time. Skeeter has become a favorite with the volunteers at the shelter and he is turning into a true gentleman who would love to find a loving home where his owners will continue with his training.

 
 
 

 

Prissy

Jack Russell
9 Year old/Spayed/Female

Prissy is getting up there in age but you wouldn't know it. She is still full of energy and spunk. She gets along with other low-key dogs that aren't too pushy. Prissy needs a home with no cats.

 

 

Bolt

Terrier Mix
1 yr old/Neutered/Male

Bolt's name is fitting. He is a fast little dog with a lot of energy and bolts from person to person for kisses. Bolt does ok with other dogs but would prefer a home of his own as he isn't a fan of sharing his food or toys.

 

 

Chrissy

Beagle
1 Year Old/Beagle

Chrissy is a friendly and outgoing young dog that gets along great with other dogs.
