Who we are
We are a registered charity, operated by a group of volunteers, with the sole purpose of caring for lost, mistreated and abandoned animals. The organization is operated by a Board of Directors.
We feature a NO KILL policy. All the animals in our care are boarded/fostered until a secure, loving home is found. We do not just give our animals away to anyone willing to take them. All of our prospective pet owners are screened very carefully. Adoption papers must be signed and a donation for adoption is required (see Adoption Donations).
All of our animals receive a medical check-up, inoculations, microchip, deworming and are spayed or neutered and kept warm, feed and sheltered. We feel that the best treatment they can receive is love and care.
Our education program, which enables us to teach pet care to hundreds of children, is offered free to all schools. Through this program, future generations will give more thought to responsible pet ownership. The adoption of any animal should not be taken lightly. It is a lifetime commitment.
What happens to your contributions?
All contributions go directly to the care of the animals and any related costs. We must pay rent/boarding fees, veterinary fees and of course, food and litter. Your contributions are necessary to take care of the many animals that are abandoned and alone. These animals require not only medical treatment, but your love and care.
In order to help cover a portion of the veterinary costs for the animals in our care, the following adoption amounts are required in the form of a donation: CATS up to 5 years old $150. CATS over 5 years old $100. DOGS up to 5 years old $300. DOGS over 5 years old $250.
Why Spay or Neuter?
If you have a dog or cat that produces litter after litter, please speak to your veterinarian about spaying or neutering. Millions of dogs and cats are put to death every year because no one wants them.
We receive no financial assistance from any government body. We operate solely on private donations, membership dues and continual fundraising efforts. All areas of Animal Adoptions of Flamborough rely on the participation of volunteers.
Caring for our Shut-Ins
The volunteers at Animal Adoptions of Flamborough visit Nursing Homes, Hospitals and Group Homes with some of our special pets. If your group or organization would like to hear more on the benefits of Pet Visitation, please contact us to arrange for a guest lecture.
