adoption procedure
   

To adopt an animal from Open Door Animal Sanctuary you must provide the utmost care for our angels. We believe the perfect home is one that provides a lifetime commitment, adequate shelter, good food & fresh water, regular veterinary care and 100 kisses a day.

We screen our potential adopters to make sure they will provide the care that we feel is important to our animals. If we do not feel your home is the right fit for one of our animals we will give you other options. Being a no-kill shelter, we know our animals and know the type of homes they will be best suited for.

Our adoption fee is $120.00. This fee includes all necessary shots up to the date of adoption (at least 2 sets) spaying or neutering, microchipping and heartworm testing. Heartworm preventative is also given. Our cats are tested for feline leukemia and FIV (Feline Aids). All animals are wormed and given flea and tick preventative. And our animals are socialized.

Open Door Animal Sanctuary is very proud to report that we did 1,240 adoptions in 2005.

A Health Care Program has been established to maintain good health in all our animals while they are at the Sanctuary. In our facility new animals are separated and closely observed for signs of illness before they are put up for adoption. All animals are checked regularly by a veterinarian. All our dogs are given vaccinations to help prevent infectious diseases such as Distemper, Parvo and Corona viruses, as well as a rabies vaccine if they are old enough.

All our cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Lenti (Aids) viruses, and are given vaccinations to help prevent feline respiratory viruses, feline leukemia viruses and also rabies. Constant efforts are made to keep all our cats & dogs free of fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites. We also microchip all the animals in case they get lost or stolen so they can return safely to their home.

Our staff evaluates the temperament of the animals at the Sanctuary. Knowing the personality of the animal helps determine the type of home for which it is best suited.

Open Door Animal Sanctuary requires that all adopted animals be spayed or neutered, so all animals (puppies and kittens included) adopted from ODAS will be spayed or neutered before leaving our facility - no exceptions. By preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first place, we decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats. Open Door Animal Sanctuary has made every effort to provide clean shelter, good food, and health care to as many animals as possible. When an animal is adopted, we expect its new owners to continue to provide a loving home, good, healthy food and regular veterinary care.
