Save a Life!
“To you, they may only be part of your life but to them you are their whole life.”
How do I adopt a pet?
In order to start the adoption process, please contact Tina (Founder of Animal Rescue Cambodia) at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. If you would like to find out more about our current rescues, have a look at their details and background below. Once you have arranged a visit to our recovery center, Tina will introduce you to the animals and you will have time to get to know them. She will also discuss the adoption agreement and any questions you may have with you.
Note: Animals are not available for adoption during the first visit! We would like to avoid spontaneous adoptions and want to assure that you are certain about your life-changing decision.
Are there any adoption requirements?
We are looking for FOREVER homes for our rescues only! If you are planning to leave Cambodia, you will need to take the animal with you. It is your family member and family should not be abandoned. Many of our rescues have had traumatic experiences and slowly learned to (re)trust humans. Please do not break this trust. Kindly research relocation procedures and costs prior to visiting us!
We would like to encourage you to choose an animal’s personality, rather than color, age, and so forth. You are choosing a companion, not an accessory. Similarly, some animals have special needs to be considered. Please thoroughly think if you are able to meet these needs, before adopting.
We want the best for our animals and, if deemed necessary, may reject an adoption application.
Are pets for adoption healthy?
We make every effort to send only healthy animals to new homes. We pass on all the information we have about our rescues. If there are permanent health issues with the animal, we will inform you prior to adoption. We do not encourage the adoption of animals still in recovery. Please be patient until it completed its treatments.
All our rescues are neutered and started/completed their vaccinations.
Please note: We do not allow the adoption of animals under 3 months old. During this time, they are very critical and unfortunately, many of them do not survive as they suffer from malnutrition and diseases and do not have a strong immune system that can help them through their recovery.
We usually have 15-20 animals at our recovery center. We only advertise them, once they are (almost) ready for adoption. Please contact us if you are interested in an animal still in recovery.
How much does it cost?
Our adoption service is free of charge.Yet, please keep in mind that the costs for most of our rescues range between 100-400 USD each. This includes medical care and treatments, food, vaccinations, neutering, transportation costs and more.
Therefore, we encourage and highly appreciate financial contributions from those who adopt. Through your donation you will enable us to help the next animal in need. In return, we offer animals that are neutered, vaccinated and have been assessed by a veterinarian, prior to adoption. Permanent medical issues will be subject to full disclosure. Since many of them stay with us for at least 1 month, we are also able to provide you with a behavioral assessment of the animal.
