Independent Animal Rescue, Inc - Durham Pet Shelter

Independent Animal Rescue, Inc

IAR started with one woman's big dreams, a bigger heart, and a very distinctive purple pickup truck that helped her rescue countless numbers of unwanted, abused, and homeless Triangle pets. Originally founded in 1994, IAR earned an official 501 (c)(3) status in 1995. IAR is currently governed by a Board of Directors, managed by elected officers, and supported by over 100 unpaid volunteers. There are no paid positions within IAR, so 100% of all donations directly support animal care and rehabilitation. Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth. At IAR, we believe that the welfare of animals is paramount. We feel that we can alleviate problems associated with animal overpopulation and abandonment using a 4-pronged approach: (1) Rescue and adoption of unwanted and abused animals; (2) funding of spay/neuter; (3) education and outreach on animal welfare to our youngest members of the community; and (4) legislation and lobbying efforts on behalf of animals.

Adoption Process

Adoption Requirements 20-year commitment to the animal You may not be an undergraduate student or member of the military You must be a US citizen You must allow a home visit (an IAR volunteer to visit your home prior to adoption.) Adoption Process Fill out an adoption interest application HERE or call us at 919-403-2221. A volunteer will contact you shortly to discuss your application. Our goal is finding lifelong, loving homes for our animals, so we try to find the best match between animal and adopter. We can help advise you on which animals to meet based on your situation. You can meet some of our animals at our monthly adoption fairs, or we can arrange for a meeting in the foster home. If it’s a good match, the foster parent will come to visit your home in person. This is to make sure your home is safe and secure for a new companion animal. Note: IAR makes every effort to please our adopters, but our first concern must be for the animal’s welfare. We reserve the right to deny any application.
