Operating since January 1, 2010, we are inspired by Sprout, our tiny, blind Chihuahua who, even after his passing in 2012, reminds us every day that saving the lives of homeless animals is no small “feet”!
Finding Shelter treats each adoption individually, with the understanding that placing a dog into a new home is not like buying a new piece of furniture, they are a new member of your family. What makes us different is the care that we take in finding the right home, with the right family, for the right animal. In addition…
We know there are a lot of questions people ask about rescue animals, especially when it comes to their health and their background. We gather as much information as possible about our animals before they come to us. In addition, we openly report any and all known behavioral, physical, and health issues so there are no surprises.
Our adoptable animals live in foster homes while with Finding Shelter. This gives us a great deal of information regarding how each individual animal lives and interacts with people and other animals in a home setting. Our fosters are our eyes and ears when it comes to the health and well-being of our animals. It also gives us first-hand knowledge of the best possible forever home living situation for our animals.
We have an in-house, certified professional dog trainer, Kelly Craig of The Distinguished Dog. Not only has Kelly adopted from and fosters for Finding Shelter, but she also provides training for all of our adoptable dogs as well as offers free, lifetime phone consultations for all of our adopters.
