The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center is in great need of volunteers to rise to a specific challenge.
We are in need of a fosters for under-aged puppies and kittens. These puppies and kittens are typically under 8 weeks old or weigh less than two pounds. While puppies and kittens are born at any time of the year, the warmer months are especially challenging for rescues and shelters. Female cats are ready to mate when the weather becomes warm, so we see many more kittens during the spring and summer.
Any volunteers that are under 18, please ask your parents to contact us if they are able and willing to provide a foster home to these sweet babies. All supplies and education necessary for their care would be provided by the Adoption Center. Please email us as soon as you can if you would like to foster sweet puppies or kittens or would like more details.
The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center strives to eliminate the suffering of homeless dogs and cats by providing humane care for pets in transition, facilitating adoptions to good homes, supporting pet overpopulation education and supporting sterilization of companion animals.
As a limited-entry companion adoption center, the Pet Adoption Center takes in healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from owners who can no longer care for them. As space allows, we also select healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from other local animal welfare agencies. Pets that are accepted into our center must pass health and behavior evaluations. All animals stay in our care until a good, loving home is found. No healthy, adoptable animal is ever destroyed. If space is not available to admit a pet, or if the pet cannot be accepted due to any other reason, owners are referred to other facilities and organizations.
All pets while in our care receive food, a comfortable environment, medical attention and loving socialization from both staff and volunteers. Our staff and volunteers monitor the physical, emotional and mental health of the animals daily. A progressive "stress reduction" program helps keep our residents healthy, happy and adoptable. All animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. For animals that are too young to be adopted, volunteers offer temporary homes through our pet foster care program.
