ADOPTING AN ANIMAL
Information about adopting from Goulburn Valley Pet Adoption & Rehoming
All of our pets are housed in foster homes. We do not operate as a shelter, nor do we have a physical location where all our animals are kept in one place. By having all our animals in foster care, this allows us to better determine the animals true demeanour in a home environment. This way we can assess their suitability for homes with other animals, small children or if they need a home where someone is home most of the time. The animals in our care truly do mean the world to us, and our foster carers love and care for these animals as if they were their own.
Unfortunately we are unable to adopt out our animals for any cheaper than the prices listed below, as all our animals are fully vetted before they are adopted out. When we say fully vetted, this means our animals are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea treated and wormed. Desexing is a huge part of rescue, as the overbreeding of cats and dogs is the main reason so many animals end up being euthanised in pounds.
The decision to adopt a pet shouldn't be taken lightly. As pet ownership is a commitment for the life of your pet, and depending on the animal you adopt, that responsibility may be for 10-15 years. As a pet owner you will be responsible for maintaining your pets yearly booster vaccines, and supplying their food, bedding and toys for their whole life. Our adoption process is thorough and this isn't to be difficult to those trying to adopt through us, it is to protect our animals and ensure they are going to a home that best suits them and you. If you are interested in adopting through us, please apply using the adoption application below.
All animals adopted from Goulburn Valley Pet Adoption & Rehoming come with a 1 month trial period. This trial period is to ensure your new family member has enough time to settle into their new environment, and you can both be sure it's the right fit. During this time, do not hesitate to get in contact with us if there are any issues, concerns or questions. If for whatever reason, you decide during the trial period that it's not the right fit, get in contact with us and we will take the animal back into our care, and your adoption fee will be refunded to you. Also, if at anytime during the course of your pets life, you are unable to care for them anymore, we will happily welcome them back.
- You are saving a life, well two actually. You see, if you adopt an animal from us, you're not only saving the life of your new pet, you're saving the life of another animal that can take their place and be rescued.
- By adopting an animal from a rescue, instead of buying an animal online or from a backyard breeder you are helping to stop the demand of puppy and kitten mills
- Adopting from a rescue, is cheaper than buying an unvetted animal from a puppy or kitten mill
- A pet can bring so much love, fun and company into your life
- You will be solely responsible for changing your pets life for the better, and the bragging rights that you have changed their whole world
PUPPIES & DOGS
Our puppies & dogs vary in price for a range of reasons. This difference in cost is due to the breed of the dog, size of the dog, and the need for vetting. E.g. a dog that is surrendered into care that is already desexed, microchipped and has vaccinations up to date, will cost significantly less than a puppy born in care that will require full vetting. The adoption price of the dog or puppy covers desexing, vaccination, flea treatment, worming & microchipping. Please fill in the form below to enquire about a specific dog in care.
CATS & KITTENS
All our cats and kittens are $200. The reason our cats & kittens cost this amount, is because they are all fully vetted and socialised. A fully vetted cat or kitten comes desexed, vaccinated, flea treated, wormed & microchipped.
If you are looking to adopt a working cat, to reduce the mouse population at your home or business, please get in contact with us. Our working cats are available for adoption for the cost of a donation.
