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, and the new pet can become a source of unconditional love for those who find their match.

Tia is looking for her new Forever Home!
Tia was found abandoned in a condo complex. She was finally caught by a concerned resident who found her to be quite friendly and affectionate. She must have been left behind because none of her nearby neighbors were looking for a lost cat. She is a calm and playful young adult cat. She enjoys lounging on cushions or quilts in her foster home and would make a great companion who is quiet and sweet. She such a cutie pie too!

Also at this time more than ever, especially while many people are quarantined at home and while the weather is nicer, Animal Alliance needs kind-hearted, responsible people and families who would be willing to foster rather than adopt a dog. Please, they are not asking for an adoption commitment – just a safe home environment to give a pet a short, greatly needed getaway from a stressful shelter environment. What a selfless gift you can give a pet in need right now!
Just think about it and apply. It could be a week or two, or just until this COVID-19 quarantine is lifted. All potential fosters can apply online, and if you are a current or previous client or friend of Belle Mead Animal Hospital, please mention that in their application process.
