Velvet Acres Animal Rescue - Zebulon Pet Shelter

Velvet Acres Animal Rescue

Velvet Acres Animal Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue based in Zebulon, NC. We currently house dogs, cats, and small animals available for adoption in foster homes. Our animals come from a variety of sources including local animal control organizations and shelters, as well as owner surrenders. We also operate a sanctuary for animals who are not well suited to normal home environments and for those who need a little extra TLC before becoming available for adoption.

Adoption Process

The first step to adopting an animal from us is to contact one of our adoption counselors about the animal you are interested in adopting. We only accept a certain number of applications for each animal, and they will be tell you if the animal you are interested in is available, as well as provide other pertinent information about that animal for you to consider before completing an application. The adoption counselor will then provide you with a unique application code that you will use to complete the adoption application. The application cannot be submitted without this code. You must be at least 18 years old, with a valid ID to adopt an animal from us. You may submit an application at any time. It will remain active for 90 days or until you chose an animal you would like to adopt. You will be contacted by email when your application is received. Please allow 3-4 business days for processing. You will be contacted by email when your application is approved or denied. Applications will be approved on a “general” status if you have not found a pet you’d like to adopt. You must meet with an animal before their name will be attached to your application. Please note, we do not hold animals. If you find yourself unable to adopt at this time, your application will be active for 90 days and you may contact us with interest in a specific animal at any point during that time frame. We will only accept 3 applications for each animal. All members of the household must meet your prospective new pet before they will be sent home. We require that all current pets in the home be up to date on their rabies, DA2PP (dogs), FVRCP (cats) vaccines and spayed or neutered before a new pet will be sent home. (Cats in the home must also be tested for FIV/FeLV.) If you lease or rent, landlord information is required.
