Thank you for your interest in adopting a Good Neighbors Animal Rescue pet! Our animals have been rescued and cared for in the homes of foster owners, who have made a significant investment in helping these animals to become adoptable.
Millions of animals are euthanized each year in local shelters because people do not seriously consider the care and maintenance of animals. Time and attention are major factors that need to be considered when taking a new pet into your home. Thus, it is a standard procedure for Good Neighbors, and many other rescue organizations, to gather some preliminary information about potential adopters, to ensure that the animal is a good match for the home and to protect the rescue pet, and other pets in the household, from transmitting any diseases. It is our hope that through good communication during the intake process, we can help match adoptive owners with the perfect pet for their family! If behavior problems arise, the adopter agrees to contact us to discuss the issues and not to surrender the animal to any shelter.
It is our policy to respect the privacy of everyone we work with, thus we do not, for any reason, share personal information of potential adopters or sponsors. Also, because we believe there can be a variety of great home situations for these animals, we inquire only as to the compatibility of the home and the animal, and do not ask for character references of any kind. We ask these questions only to assure the best possible outcome for both animal and adopter.
Again, thank you for making the excellent choice to adopt a Good Neighbors rescue pet!
