Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment (A.D.O.P.T.) is a private, “no-kill”, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has found homes for more than 20,000 pets. It provides a temporary, loving home for dogs and cats that no longer have a family of their own. Animals have ended up at the shelter for a variety of reasons ranging from abandonment, to rescue from an abusive situation, to owner surrender because they no longer are able to take care of them. Their animals are loving, family pets who are desperately awaiting for their forever home.
A.D.O.P.T. was founded in 1989 by a group of dedicated volunteers determined to find homes for animals in need. Over the years, their objective has remained the same: to place animals into permanent, caring homes and advance the humane treatment of animals through education.
