Do you have a heart for rescued animals? Do you dream of finding a furry best friend?
Greenville has a variety of passionate pet adoption organizations that work hard to unite their rescues with loving forever homes. These generous teams of people rescue a multitude of cats and dogs daily, saving hundreds of lives! When choosing to adopt, you not only make a difference in an animals life, but you’ll be making memories that last a lifetime.
For most adoptions, you simply need to fill out an online application.
Most organizations foster pets within a home already, so they will know.
Always have your ID available.
Be ready with a form of payment (cash, debit/credit card).
Understand what your adoption fees are covering. Most fees cover medical basics such as Spay or neuter, microchip and registration, vaccines, de-wormer, flea treatment, and a heart worm test.
Some organizations may require an in-home visit. This helps secure that the home is safe and ready for a new furry family member.
