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.
Helping our community
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:
KITTENS and CATS up to 5 years old $180.
CATS over 5 years old up to 10 years old $130.
CATS over 10 years old or with Special Needs $100.
DOGS up to and including 5 years old $350.
DOGS 6 years and older $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.
Adopting a pet into a family is a commitment for the lifetime of the animal. It is so important to make sure that the match is right between people and pet. Both we and potential adopters take the time and care that is so vital to making the adoption decision. For example, we never allow pets to be adopted as gifts for other people, because we believe people should meet a pet first before starting start such an important, long-term match. When it’s time to consider adopting, let’s talk about finding the right pet for you.
