If your current housing situation is temporary, such as a rental, please carefully consider whether you'll be able to take your pet with you to new housing. The most common reason for relinquishment to a shelter is ‘moving and cannot take with’. If you have any doubt of your ability to provide a forever home, please consider fostering instead of adoption. We are always looking for feline and canine fosters. LAWS pays all expenses! You can find out more about fostering on our Foster Page
Children under age 6 may have a hard time handling a kitten, puppy or other small animal properly. Squeezing, poking, and other things may cause them to scratch or bite in self-defense which could cause injury. An adult pet, who is calm and experienced, is a much better choice for young children.
