ADOPTING FROM CALLIOPE RESCUE

Adding a pet to your household is a very important decision. One must consider veterinarian costs, proper nutrition, and a commitment of anywhere between 5 to 20 years.
Please understand that all shelters and rescue groups have different criteria for approving adoption applications. If your application is denied, it only means that you do not have the appropriate household for the pets listed at the moment. This does not mean anything about you as a person.
We ask certain questions to match you with the pet that will brighten your life. We also want to ensure that the animal you adopt will stay with you for the duration of his/her life. The increasing number of abandoned pets has overwhelmed everyone in the animal welfare community.
Our goal is to get the animals off the streets and place them in FOREVER homes.

If you do not feel that you can make a long-term commitment to a pet, please consider becoming a foster parent. If you do not know how to answer a certain question, select the Unsure, would like more education choice in the drop down menus. Since we do not have an actual shelter, our pets are kept in foster homes between the Boston and Shrewsbury area. The town where the pet is located will be listed in their description on petfinder for your convenience.

If you no longer see a pet listed on our website, it has either been adopted or moved to a no-kill shelter for adoption. Feel free to contact us to inquire. If the pet is available for adoption somewhere else, we will direct you to that shelter's website.

If you are adopting a companion for an existing pet, make sure your animal is up to date on all the vaccines and has been combo-tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia. The result of the test will simply help us to match you with the right cat. This is to protect both your existing pet and the one you will be adopting.
All information you disclose to us will be kept confidentially. We do not share adoption applications with anyone. If we feel another group or shelter has a better match for you, we will contact you to inform you. We will not automatically forward your information to anyone else.

I am ready to change the statistics. I want to adopt a pet!
