Caden with Pet Adoption Network
Cosmo (was our Caden) has found his furever home!
This Pyrenees/Border Collie/Heeler was abandoned and came to us at 13 weeks old. He was so afraid of everything that he would freeze up when approached, much less being on leashes, having manners, etc. He has now got a new older sister and will be taking puppy classes for socialization! This makes what we do worthwhile to be able to share their stories with you!
- We're SO happy for Cosmo and his new family!
Pet Adoption Network is not a shelter and does not have a facility. Animals in our care are placed in foster homes while they receive medical attention and lots of love until they are up for adoption.
What are Adoption Fees Used For?
We've been asked numerous times about our "adoption fee" - Why are the rates different? or, Why so much? Our only resources are from adoption fees and donations. We do not receive any support from local government, or taxes of any kind. We also offer discounted fees for senior and disabled applicants.
Adoption Fees primarily pay for medical costs for our animals - they are always spayed or neutered or if too young, we follow-up to ensure that does take place, when appropriate. Surrendered pets are usually not up to date on vaccinations and we provide most all vaccines except Rabies. Microchips are implanted either with other surgery or separately. We also pay for special medications that a particular animal may require or treatment for neglectful situations they may come from. We also assist foster homes with collars, leashes, bedding, crates, kennels and environmental needs like a heated den if the dog has very short fur. Additionally, there are operating costs for supplies, registration fees and costs for staging events. We also incur some very high medical expenses for animals that come in injured that far exceed any adoption fee that we will recover on that particular animal, but when it is possible to ensure a quality of life, we do have a small reserve for extraordinary costs.
We DO NOT pay salaries for staff, all efforts are performed with volunteer assistance, on volunteer time, in personally owned vehicles. We occasionally pay transportation costs to volunteers, but not as often as they deserve. We do a lot of travel, doing home checks, transporting animals to their forever homes, and adoption events. We are committed to the animal and their well-being, making sure that they are adopted into a loving and able family.
Adopting a Friend
If you are interested in one of our adoptable pets, please contact us through the link listed in the pet's biography. You will be required to fill out an adoption application and if approved, we'll do a home visit and if all goes well, you can look forward to bringing your new friend home. Adoption fees vary. If the animal is too young to be spayed/neutered, a spay/neuter contract will have to be signed. We will follow up with you when the animal reaches the appropriate age. We want both you and your new furry friend to be absolutely happy!
Donations are always welcome: Many of the animals that we take in are strays and may also have extensive medical needs, including getting them current on vaccinations, spaying and neutering them (of course), dental work, etc. To make a donation contact Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the PayPal Donate button.
You can also "sponsor" a dog if you have a favorite... once you're at their page you can find the purple Sponsor button above the pictures on the right hand side.

Fostering for PAN
We are always looking for Foster Homes
PAN does not have a shelter and works exclusively out of foster homes, which are always in short supply. Foster Homes provide a lifeline for our adoptable pets while we become acquainted with their needs and capabilities, and search for their forever home. We are able to provide some resources to our foster homes, and we do conduct home visits before placing animals.
Our greatest need is for Rescue Foster Homes. Save a life! Become a rescue foster parent for dogs of all sizes, cats and kittens. Please e-mail us at email@example.com to find out more about fostering an animal in need.
Don't have time or space to foster, but still want to help? Your donation will help us with veterinary costs, toys, beds, special diet foods and so much more! You can also "Sponsor-A-Pet" by clicking on the button on each animal's page!!
