What do your adoption fees cover?
All of our dogs are already spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on their vaccinations: rabies, parvo/distemper, and bordatella ("kennel cough"). Dogs are dewormed and provided flea control before being adopted.
I found a stray dog or I have a dog I need to get rid of. Will Nobody's Perfekt Dogs take it?
Unfortunately, because of our very limited spaces for foster dogs, we are only taking shelter referrals at this time.
If I take the dog to a shelter, won't they euthanize it?
It is possible that the city shelters will need to euthanize any stray or owner-surrendered dog they receive. Usually the local shelters only euthanize animals if they are gravely ill, vicious, or the shelter is too full. Many healthy/adoptable dogs are pulled by various local animal rescue groups or shipped to areas of the country where there is a shortage of rescue dogs available for adoption. The shelter or rescue groups will often attempt to provide veterinary care for treatable conditions (although charitable funding for vet costs is getting harder to come by).
Is there anything I can do to help a stray or my unwanted dog to get adopted easier?
Yes, there are some things you can do. First of all, get the dog spayed or neutered. Rescue groups are more likely to pull a dog that is already fixed. The shelter is likely to promote already fixed dogs before those that still need to be spayed/neutered. The SPCA has reasonable rates for spaying/ neutering, but surgery appointments can take 4-6 weeks.
Nobody's Perfekt Dogs can provide "courtesy listings" on our websites and other social media, but only if the dog is fixed.
In some cases, Nobody's Perfekt Dogs will take a dog, if the person who found it is willing to foster the dog until it is adopted - again, the dog needs to be fixed, first.
