What does it mean to adopt?
Congratulations! You've found that special dog or cat that you'd like to bring into your home and introduce as part of your family. Now what?
There are several things to consider when adopting a new pet. We encourage you to consider these BEFORE you make the commitment:
Are there other animals already in your home which need to be considered? If so, plan a meet
and greet first to ensure they're accepting of a new family member.
Does your home provide a safe haven for the animal? Is your yard fenced? What precautions
should be taken to ensure the animals safety?
What about other family members? Are there allergies or other issues to be considered?
Can you provide for the needs of the animal? Food, vaccinations, and routine veterinary
care aren't free, and should be considered in your monthly budgetary expenses.
Do you have a landlord? If so, you may need his or her permission.
Are you ready to make a life-time commitment to the pet? Adoption means FUREVER!
If you feel comfortable with proceeding after having considered the questions above contact us at (509) 416-6637 or email us at: ASAPWestRichland@gmail.com. Check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AdoptShelterAnimalPets/

What If I'm Not Sure? Can I Foster?
Adoption is a life-time commitment to the animal. Sometimes it's not right for everyone. Don't let that stop you from experiencing the joy an animal can bring you. PLUS, you get the satisfaction of knowing you're part of the ASAP team - helping to improve the lives of homeless pets! Rather than being kenneled 24/7, why not open your home for a short term stay? Many families elect to help by being "Foster" families, providing short term care, compassion, and training while permanent homes are being found.
No adoption fee to foster. Simply contact us to present your desire to provide temporary care for the dog or cat of your choice. You'll sleep better and so will your new foster four legged friend!
