How Long Are Rescued Animals in the Shelter?

Q:

How long does it take a rescued animal to find a new home?

A:

A rescued animal can stay at the Animal League as long as it takes to find a loving home. Most of the animals are prepared for adoption within three or four days. They are groomed, medically examined, behaviorally evaluated, vaccinated and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. On average, most of the dogs and cats at the Animal League find loving homes within a week. This quick turn around time enables the Animal League to maximize the number of lives saved. There are special needs dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that may take months to find the right match.
