The dogs and cats at the Riverbend Animal Shelter have had enough sadness in their lives. They may have been neglected, abandoned or separated from people who could no longer care for them. They deserve a loving home where they will be safe and receive the best health care. The adoption regulations below were planned to insure that prospective adopters can meet the needs of their pet.
FOR BOTH DOGS AND CATS -
The adopted animals receive healthy food, water, adequate exercise and professional veterinary care including annual checkups and inoculations.
FOR CATS AND KITTENS -
Prospective adopters agree to keep cats and kittens in their homes rather than allowing them to go outside.
FOR DOGS AND PUPPIES -
In most cases dogs or puppies must be kept in a fenced yard when outside rather than being chained, tied or allowed to run loose. Dogs who live outdoors must have an insulated dog house.
Can you meet these requirements? Wonderful! You're ready to start on one of life's great adventures: adopting an animal who needs a home.
