Volunteers For Animals periodically pulls dogs for other shelters in need of moving animals to avoid euthanizing healthy, adoptable animals. We are able to do this through the generosity of many people such as the originating shelter staff, transporters, foster volunteers and others who help with pulling fees, vet bills and finding good homes once they are here.
The adoption process includes an application that is completed by the potential owner. If there are multiple applications on the same animal, the animal will go to the best home for that particular animal - not necessarily the first application. Fees for the rescues animals can range from $50 to $150 per animal which needs to be cash or a check - NO CREDIT CARDS.
If you are interested in any of these dogs, please email. Do not call the Shelter regarding rescue animals - they have no information. All rescue animals are in foster homes with volunteers - NOT at the Shelter - unless otherwise noted.
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.
Ozzie is a friendly and sweet little guy. He is currently on meds to help with heart problems but he is so easy to medicate. His mom can no longer care for him and his two other buddies. She is quite sad but wants them to have the love and care they deserve. Ozzie is currently in a foster home so if you would like to meet him, email us at email@example.com

This young lady was adopted and got along at first with another dog, unfortunately that changed. So she should be the only pet. She is sweet, crate and house trained. Good on walks, gets along with men and women. You really should come in and meet her.
