Adoption is a great way to support AINF and find your new best friend. Our modest adoption fee of ($75.00) helps us continue our vaccination, microchip, sterilization, and adoption programs. Through our partnership with Petco Stores in Lompoc, Arroyo Grande, and San Luis Obispo we are able to rescue adult cats from Animal Services and place them in these stores for adoption. This unique partnership has significantly reduced the euthanasia of healthy cats.
Say Hello to our little friend, Snickers!
When "Snickers' owner realized he couldn't keep her anymore, he decided to give her away. He did this by standing in front of Walmart asking people if they wanted to take her. THANKFULLY one of our amazing AINF volunteers swooped in and Snickers became a member of the AINF family. Though the decision to give her away in such a manner is questionable, there is no question that her previous owner took very good care of her. She has had her vaccinations, she is microchipped, and will be spayed soon. She is a very sweet girl who bonds quickly to people as well as other dogs. She is currently being fostered by the volunteer who rescued her but is looking for her new forever home. Snickers is VERY small! Only 2.5 pounds at her last visit... due to her small size it is probably best if she go to a home where all human residents are dog savvy.
Hello my name is Foxy my mom and dad found me in a rescue shelter in 2010. I am a Papillion mix and you can see by my picture how I acquired the name Foxy! Since 2010 I’ve been living the best life a boy could ever ask for until 2 years ago when my mom died. Life was different for me after losing my mom but my dad and I did the best we could to take care of each other then my dad became very sick and was unable to care for me anymore. A family member took me but she already has 3 dogs and feels it would be best for me to find a family who needs a best buddy. I love to go for car rides, and walks and would love to sit with you while you watch t.v. or read…I lived with a kitty my whole life so don’t have any kitty issues…Probably my biggest issue is I squeal and then howl for a minute or two when the people I love come home, it’s my way of telling you how much I missed you!! I also love to play ball, and I am crate trained and I go into my crate at nighttime without complaining one little bit! My foster mom took to me to the vet to have me checked over and my new vet Dr. Stamp told my foster mom what a sweet boy I was, of course I already knew that, but hearing her say it made my tail go crazy! Dr. Stamp gave me a clean bill of health she also said I was a very young 9 year old boy and have a lot of years left to play and be someone’s loving pet. If you would like to ask more questions about me please contact my Foster Mom…
