Adopt A Pet (or two)! (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 save older cats (ages ranging from 6yrs to 18yrs old) from the shelter. These cats can have dental issues, FIV+ statuses, Cerebellar Hypoplasia, histories of urinary crystals/blocking, needing diagnostics, amputations, enucleations and other specialty surgeries, etc. These special felines would otherwise not be accepted into closed-intake humane societies based on their age alone...not to mention likely having other medical needs. And the amazing thing is....through AINF...they always get adopted.
Ok, so maybe there is no such thing as an impuuuurfect kitten...
No matter their age, color or purr-sonality, we've made a promise to these cats and kittens to match them with families who will love them FURever. Once our special feline friends are ready for adoption, they will head to one of our Central Coast Petco Store cat-habitats. All cats & kittens are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, Felv/FIV tested & microchipped. If you've fallen in love with a feline you've met at the SLO, Arroyo Grande or Lompoc Petco Stores, please submit a completed adoption application & we will contact you very soon! Applications may be faxed (805-929-2858), emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) or hand delivered to our AINF 'hub' located behind the Nipomo Dog & Cat Hospital. For more information about our adoptable felines, please call our Kitty-Cat Hotline 805-619-0588.
Please don’t shop, adopt! 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:
