Adopt A Pet- (scroll down for available pets)
"We're a small non-profit with the heart of lion and the will to serve pets who need us the most." Libby Cabral, AINF board member and Adoption/PETCO Program volunteer
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.
Meet Our "purrfectly" Imperfect crew... Because of our access to veterinary care and in an effort to rescue and care for under-served cats, we are able to pull older cats (ages ranging from 6yrs to 18yrs old) with dental issues, FIV+ statuses, CH, history of crystals/blocking, needing diagnostics, amputations, enucleations, other specialty surgeries, etc. These cats would otherwise not be accepted into closed-intake humane societies based on their age alone... not to mention having other likely medical needs. And the amazing part is through AINF... they always get adopted.
Simon says.... Adopt me! I’m a reserved kind of guy & a little unsure of what is happening in my life. I’d love to live in a quiet home where I could practice my cat meditation exercises (aka: snoozin’!). I’m an easy-going, undemanding fella & I love my daily tummy & ear rubs. I can be shy at first but I will warm up as soon as I know I’m safe. My person had to move to another country for her work & was not able to bring me with her. At a very healthy 15 years old, I hope to settle in with a nice family who will give me a second chance to be loved. I would prefer to be the main cat-man in your life but if you have a cat-friendly dog, I would likely be ok (after a slow, proper introduction). I’m neutered, current on my vaccines, Felv/FIV tested negative & microchipped. I prefer to be an indoor-only kitty...because the outside world is a little scary! If you have an open space in your heart & some space next to you on your couch, that is where I’d like to be. If you’re interested in being my new person, please fill out an application & my AINF friends will contact you very soon!
Meet Poppy! Brought to Nipomo Dog & Cat Hospital by a Good Samaritan with a very badly injured eye. Monday (12/4), they removed the bad eye, spayed her, and Tuesday she went into our foster program. She's estimated to be about 6 months old with an amazing future ahead of her. Foster dog-sister Addi will help Poppy as she heals and gets ready for adoption. ** Poppy is ready for her forever home!!!! If you are interested, please click on the adoption application below!
The puppies and kittens you see at local pets shops and at on-line “kennels” are the product of inhumane treatment of animals. Please don’t support these businesses. If you are looking for a loving pet, we recommend from the following local organizations:
