Adoption policy

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. \xa0We are a no-kill shelter. \xa0All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.\xa0 \xa0 Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations. \xa0 \xa0 Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website adoption list and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
