ADOPT ME SOCIETY

 
Adopt Me Society is a non-profit 501 c3, organized in the Spring of 2011 and located in Salt Lake City, Utah.  AMS is run by volunteer staff. 
 
OUR GOAL
  
The Goal of AMS is to Rescue, Provide Sanctuary, and ultimately Re-home stray and abandoned animals.
 
OUR ADOPTION PROCEDURE
 
AMS works in conjunction with The Humane Society of Utah, Local and State-wide Animal Shelters,  various animal groups, and also with individuals in an attempt to provide rescue for homeless animals.  We do not discriminate on the basis of age, health, or animal breed.
Once an animal is in our rescue, it is examined, vaccinated, altered if need be, and appropriately medicated.  Our final step is to place these animals into carefully screened forever homes. We attempt to ensure no loving dog or cat is unjustly euthanized.
 
THE ADOPTION PROCESS             
 
We want to ensure our rescue animals are placed in an environment appropriate to their needs. Therefore, we reserve the right to screen prospective adoptive owners.  We also reserve the  right to at any time terminate the adoption. 
To effect this adoption procedure, we place animals based on age, health-condition, and temperament  as well as environment, family style, and long-term expectations of the prospective adoptive family.  
We have only the best interest of both our rescue animals and the prospective family at heart.  We attempt to avoid misplacements, and appreciate your understanding and compliance in the adoption process. 
 
We also, and most importantly, ask that our adoption applicants agree to return any adopted animal to AMS should life-problems and situations arise affecting the appropriate and care and/or any health issue of the adopted animal.
 
OUR MISSION
 
AMS is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of forgotten, rejected, abandoned, and abused animals of all breeds.  We are committed to our rescue animals for their entire lives.
 
WE attempt to:
 
 Rescue from euthanasia lists to reduce the need of euthanizing adoptable animals.
 Provide an alternative to releasing animals to shelters.
 Assist those who have life situations (homelessness, illness, death) making animal care      unsure or inappropriate.
 
 Provide alternatives for those forced to move to living situations that do not allow pets:
  *re-homing programs,
  *programs working with family and friends, and
  *programs working with property management,
  *provide education regarding animal placement issues to the general public, and finally
  *provide assistance to residents in facilitating ways and means to retain pets in their homes.
 
 Some of these issues may include:
    *Major medical of an animal
    *Behavioral issues
    *Appropriate food
    *Property management education
    *Companionship benefits
    *Re-homing of pets
