The Belle Mead Animal Hospital encourages both existing and prospective pet owners to consider adopting a rescue pet whenever possible.
Rescue groups are brimming with happy, healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. The pets available for adoption have all had their wellness exams and vaccinations. They are typically spayed or neutered, and their temperaments have been well established so a prospective adopter can be matched with the right pet to suit their particular household.
The Belle Mead Animal Hospital is proud to support local rescue groups and assist by offering adoption days at the hospital and showcasing adoptable pets in our waiting room on a regular basis. Adopting and caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment for an individual, andthe new pet can become a source of unconditional love for those who find their match.

Snap and Pop need their Forever Home:
Snap and Pop are the remaining kitties from the Rice Krispie litter! Snap, a beautifully colored orange tabby, was the only male in the litter. Snap is shy at first but extremely loving. He has a wonderful purr! Snap loves to be around other cats, especially his sister Pop. Pop, a pretty tortoiseshell, is more shy than her brother and is very bonded to him. She needs more time to acclimate to new situations. If not adopted together, they each will do best in a quiet home with other pets (preferably another playful cat!).

Alicia is ready for her new Forever Home:
Alicia is a young, elegant, fast-moving, beautiful female tabby rescued in the winter from College Avenue Campus. Approximately 1 year old, she has been neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and is negative for FIV/Feleuk. Alicia does not sit still for long, unless she is standing on your lap and pushing her face into your chin while purring. She burns energy leaping from place to place and galloping quickly and quietly as she makes her rounds! She loves dry food, loves to have her head, chin and back scratched and purrs if you oblige!
Alicia is nervous with other cats and swats/advances if they get too close to her. She would be ideal as single cat or with another cat who would respect her space. She would do well with responsible older children who would oblige her need for human contact and also recognize when she just wants to sleep instead! If you are interested in adopting or fostering Alicia, please contact us for more details at: firstname.lastname@example.org
