Additional Contact Info:
If you are interested in adopting a pet, kindly go to our "Adoption Info" page to a pre-adoption application. Once we have your information and complete reference checks, we will get back in touch with you (usually within 24 hours) to schedule a time to meet.
We ask a $225.00 cash donation for the adoptions of our dogs or pups, and $75 - $95.00 for a cat/kitten. Prior to adoption, all of our pets vetted, given their age appropriate shots, de-wormed and have been spayed. Your adoption donation helps us off-set veterinary fees. You are always welcome to give a larger donation - we appreciate your support!
SOS, Save Our Strays values your questions and inquiries. We strive to answer all questions within 24 hours. If, for any reason, you do not hear from us, please try again. We are volunteers and spend much of our time caring for the animals. Thanks for understanding. To contact us click here. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FORM TO REQUEST A MEETING WITH THE ADOPTABLE PETS - INSTEAD COMPLETE A PRE-ADOPTION APPLICATION. WE DO NOT SHOW THE PETS WITHOUT THIS STEP COMPLETED FIRST. Thanks for understanding.
PLEASE NOTE: All of our inquiries and responses are done by e-mail. We do not have a phone number.
Why we do not have a phone:
When Save Our strays first started, we were one of the only rescues to answer the phone. The phone rang constantly and 98% of the time it was someone wanting to surrender a dog or cat and that person was referred to us by their local "Humane Society," Veterinarian or Animal Control Officer (the people are paid employees of their organizations.) The very folks who hold them selves out as contracted with their town with assisting people, assist people with their animal's vet care for a profit and are paid to address animal control issues were unwilling to help the individual in need or assist in solving animal related problems. Instead they felt they could tell people to call us and just "pass their responsibility" to our all volunteer group. After getting many phone calls after midnight, we stopped taking phone calls.
The constant phone calls were taking time away from potential adopters and most important...taking time from the animals. So...we decided to go with email. The reason it is easier for us to do email is because we can step away from the computer to help a potential adopter or tend to a needy dog or cat. We cannot do that while on the phone all day.
We do understand that this can be frustrating to people trying to contact Save Our Strays, but please try to understand how frustrating it is for us. We are asking for your understanding on our decision, and your support would mean a lot. We, like all volunteer rescuers, do our best to keep the animal as the priority and have made this decision with a lot of thought-please trust us in that.
Should you send us an email and not receive a response within 24 hours, please resend the email as sometimes emails are sent to spam and sometimes they just get lost.
If you are emailing with a question about a pet that you adopted from us, please be detailed in your e-mail, include a telephone number where you can be reached along with the best time for us to contact you.
Thanks for understanding!
