Reasons to Adopt

Spread the Word

JOIN OUR TEAM by passing along your contact info so we can update you on progress and new campaigns


with two great actions:

  • Contact your open admission shelter to become a Fellow
    There may be more than one open admission shelter, so you’ll have to do a little research.
  • Ask to speak to the shelter director(s) or someone that reports to them
    Direct them to our website for information. And, while we recommend a follow up, please be mindful that shelter directors are extremely busy and under a lot of pressure to help the animals, so please be patient.
