Thanks to FCAR's amazing network of volunteers, our pets are never kept in a kennel; they are placed into foster homes. In our foster homes the fosters work on house training, basic commands and crate training. During the animal’s time in the foster home we are able to further learn about each pet's personality, likes and dislikes, and what type of home would be the best fit for that particular animal.
Our animals are medically up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered if old enough, microchipped, and dewormed. If they have any other medical issues found while in our care, we treat that as well. Our board consists of three veterinarians who donate their professional skills.
The adoption process begins with submitting an application, this application is then reviewed. This includes calling landlords to ensure a pet is allowed, calling the veterinarian if there are any current pets in the household and calling references listed by the applicant. After that section of the application is approved, a meet and greet will be scheduled. After the meet and greet, both the applicant and foster will be contacted to see how they feel the meet and greet went. If both feel it went well a home visit will be done so that we can assure our pets are going into a safe environment. Once the application is approved, a meet and greet has happened, and the home visit is approved, then the applicant is approved to adopt.
There is a one-week trial period that the adoption fee is held for. If at any time during this week you decide that it isn't a good fit, you are to return him/her to the rescue and your check will not be deposited/cash will be returned. Any time after the week trial period if you decide you no longer can keep the pet you are to return him/her to the rescue and the adoption fee will not be refunded.
