Veteran Rescue gets a lot of questions about wild and domestic animals. This should hopefully address the most common. For any questions not addressed on this FAQ please feel free to call or email.
Veteran Rescue FAQ: Pets & Animals
Q: I found an injured bird. Can you take care of it?
A: No. Unfortunately, it takes a special certification to care for and rehabilitate birds, which we do not have.
Q: I found an injured fox/raccoon/other non-domestic animal. Can you take care of it?
A: No. Unfortunately, it takes a special certification to care for and rehabilitate wild animals, which we do not have.
Q: Can I give my pet to you to adopt out?
A: No, but if you send us a picture and a description of your pet, we can network with other pet rescues and those looking for adoption on our social networking sites. At the moment, we cannot take in animals at our office location, as we are currently full.
Q: Do you have any other pets available for adoption besides what I see above?
A: If there are no other animals listed on the Adoptable Pets page then unfortunately, no.
Q: There’s a feral cat colony near me. Can you move, trap or otherwise care for them?
A: No. This also requires special certification that we do not have. Please call your local rescue or ask SpayNSave.org for a referral for help with feral cat colonies.
Q: Can I adopt a military working dog from you?
A: No. Please contact your local base for information. Due to recent security changes, Veteran Rescue can no longer give out the contact information for you.
