FAQs

When are you open?

Our adoption center is open Thursday – Sunday from 10:00am – 2:00pm.

Staff are available seven days a week for fosters and volunteers, but our adoption hours are limited so staff can continue to provide ample enrichment and care for the animals in-house. We always prefer adoption appointments to ensure the best adoption counseling we can provide. Please send us an email to schedule at hailesangelspetrescue@gmail.com or give us a call at 352-505-0302.

I have a cat/dog that I can’t keep/found/don’t want anymore. Will you take it or do you have to take it?

We are a privately run, closed admission, non-profit rescue. We must manage our intakes accordingly. If you have an animal in need or one you believe you need to surrender, please fill out our owner surrender form found below. Although we may not be able to reply right away, we put these in order by need and will contact you — situation depending — as space permits.

Our policy is “Once and Angel, always and Angel” and accordingly, we do accept animals back who have been previously been adopted from our program. If you are a previous adopter and are considering surrendering your Angel, please fill out the forms below and we will be in touch with you. If you are attempting to surrender an animal who was not adopted from our facility, please use the above forms and be as detailed as possible. We welcome photos of the animal to our email at hailesangelspetrescue@gmail.com.

How much does it cost to adopt an animal?

The cost to adopt an animal varies depending on if they are a puppy, adult or long term resident. Puppies under four months are $300, adult dogs are $175, kitten under six months are $99, cats over six months are $59. Our average cost for caring for and preparing each animal for adoption is greater than our adoption fees, but we try to balance demand and our goal of saving as many animals as possible in setting our adoption fee structure.

Do you have (insert breed/sex/age/type of animal)?

Please visit our Facebook page to see our most up-to-date listing of our available pets. If you see someone you are interested in meeting please visit our rescue during normal business hours. Puppies and the more popular dog breeds tend to go very quickly. We do not hold animals. If there is a specific breed, age, sex, etc. that you are looking for please check the Facebook page very frequently.
