PRECIOUS PAWS RESCUE
THE PRIMARY PURPOSES OF THIS ORGANIZATION IS TO REDUCE PET OVERPOPULATION AND TO RELIEVE THE SUFFERING OF ANIMALS BY RESCUING, FOSTERING AND REHOMING UNWANTED OR ABANDONED PETS; TO INFORM AND EDUCATE THE PUPLIC REGARDING BASIC PET CARE, THE IMPORTANCE OF SPAY/ NEUTER PRACTICES TO CONTROL PET OVERPOPULATION AND TO SEEK FUNDING FOR THESE PROCEDURES.
Based on the individual pet’s age, health status and veterinary evaluation, Precious Paws rescued pets are up to date on vaccinations, sterilized, dewormed, treated for fleas and ticks and microchipped. Dogs are tested for heartworm and treated based on results. Cats are Feline Leukemia / AIDS negative.
Our pets are rescued from a variety of sources within Citrus County and the surrounding areas. Many are adult pets left homeless when their owners or their families are no longer able to care for them due to death, illness, or family circumstances. These pets have been well loved and are just waiting for that special person and/or family to open their home and their heart.
Any pre-existing condition, medical or special needs circumstances, are discussed with potential adopters prior to placement. A post-adoption medical exam is provided free of charge by the
Floral City Veterinary Hospital.
Volunteer foster moms and dads care for rescued pets in their homes. This provides a unique opportunity to evaluate the individual animal’s needs and help our volunteers help you find the best pet for you and your family.
A tax-deductible donation is requested for each pet. A higher fee may be requested for some purebred or younger animals. This fee may be reduced or waived for some senior or medically needy pets.
Finding the best home for each adoptive pet is our goal. Potential adopters and family members are interviewed, complete an adoption application and sign a contract. Home visits, veterinarian reference, and a letter of permission from your landlord are part of the standard adoption process to insure a successful adoption. Certain needs for individual pets, such as a fenced yard, will be part of the placement process. Post-adoption visits are conducted on an as needed basis as determined by the foster parent and/or adoptive family.
Precious Paws foster parents or a representative is always available for questions or concerns. Direct contact information via email and telephone are noted on the copy of the adoption records at the time of the pet adoption.
Adopters agree to return the pet to Precious Paws Rescue, if for any reason and at any time, they are unable to keep it. The donation fee will be refunded within the first 30 days.
