Don’t BUY when shelter pets DIE! Please adopt a best friend today from For Pete’s Sake Rescue. The more we adopt out the more animals we can save from a horrible death at the kill shelters! Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives.

Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you’ll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA

For Pete’s Sake is a 501c3 organization devoted to saving animals by finding qualified homes or owners and also finding interested families to foster unwanted and neglected animals.

Ada Flaherty and her “For Pete’s Sake” team locate animals that have been placed in local shelters and are schedules for euthanasia, they take these animals and treat them for any illnesses and have them spayed or neutered then place them in foster homes and from there, these dogs find forever homes.

    do you have the Maine Coon cat called Belle ?

  2. do you put pictures on your site so we can see the available dogs?

  3. Can not access the adoption app. Where do I find it

  4. I found a stray and rescued him from the cold, trouble is, I have 3 house dogs from the shelter already. No one will take him and I really need to find him a home. He’s housebroken and leash trained but he’s a runner, he’d leave in a minute. They said he’d been shot at. I think someone just didn’t want him anymore. He is sweet, can you help me?
