Rescue Adoption Policy

Any rescue organization interested in adopting any animals through the Adams County SPCA, must first give us the requested information below. These forms will be retained for our records, and The Adams County SPCA also maintains the right to adopt or deny, any adoption to any rescue at any time if they feel it is not in the best interest of the animal.

  12. Any other relevant information

The Adams County SPCA requires the above information from Rescues because although we know there are very legitimate Rescues out there, we also know there are some rather bad ones too. We are just looking out for the best interest of the animals we care for. The Rescues that we have worked with in the past have been very receptive to this policy, because it also helps them improve the image of Rescues, by watching out for the bad ones.
