SPARR is an all volunteer organization.. We rescue from high kill shelters throughout the region. One of our main goals is to rescue the injured, ill and unfortunate animals that otherwise would not have a chance. We are a small rescue making a big difference.
Please note that adoption applications will only be accepted from persons 21 years old or older. We thank you for your interest in adopting from Sound Pet Animal Rescue . The average time to process the application is 7-10 days. This may not apply to past adopters of Sound Pet Animal Rescue. Please understand that in most cases there are mulitple applications on each dog. Adoption Disclaimer, please read: Neither Sound Pet Animal Rescue nor its volunteers, coordinators, representatives, Internet Service Provider and its officers, employees, contractors and representatives; and any other person, firm or corporation involved with the efforts or business of this corporation, shall be held liable or responsible for any claims or causes of action incurred as a result of the provision or restriction of information, services, contacts, adoptions, fostering, veterinary care or by the actions of any and all dogs and cats transferred or referenced herein. Moreover, there is absolutely no guarantee made or implied that any person requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through SPAR, or posted on SPAR's Website or Petfinder.com, will be allowed to adopt a dog from SPAR. Rather, all adoption applications are subject to acceptance based on a review process that may require collecting information from references and visiting the applicant's home. All decisions on placing dogs in adoptive and foster homes are based solely on the judgment of the volunteers and coordinators of SPAR and adoption applications submitted are sometimes denied for various reasons. SPAR reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care whether in, or being placed in, a foster or adoptive home or other facility. **Please be prepared to correspond with an adoption representative via email. Due to restrictions on application volume, time, and the general nature of rescue, almost all of our correspondences are done by email. Please check your email regularly to see if you have been contacted and be sure to allow emails from the rescue as we will not fill out a request form to send a reply email.** It is SPAR's policy to not adopt our rescues into homes with unaltered pets, while spaying and neutering is a personal choice, it is in the best health interest of a pet to be spayed or neutered. It cuts down on chances of testicular cancer in males - not to mention the marking and mounting issues when a new pet is brought in - as well as mammary tumors and cancer in females. If you are unclear about the benefits, please speak with your vet about the issue. If your pet is not spayed or neutered and you are unwilling to have it done, please do not continue the application process unless that pet is elderly or an active show dog. The spay/neuter status of all current pets in any adoptive home is verified through the vet reference and no adoption is approved until this is done.
