Adoption

Adoption

adoptions1At All Creatures Great & Groomed we are committed to helping pets who have been abandoned or otherwise neglected by their owners. This is why we provide various resources for individuals interested in adopting dogs, cats, and exotic animals.

At All Creatures Great and Groomed we believe that every animal deserves a loving and caring home environment. Many dogs, cats, and exotics are abandoned or turned over to shelters every year.

adoptions2Through our partnerships with organizations like EARPS and Mended Hearts, we believe it is possible to find a compassionate owner for each and every one of them.

Dogs and cats can be adopted through Mended Hearts Indy. Mended Hearts is an animal welfare organization based here in Indianapolis. This organization is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of animals of all breeds, ages, and capabilities.

adoptions4They are committed to finding responsible, qualified homes for abandoned or sheltered animals, while also working to educate and encourage responsible pet ownership and companion animal adoption.

The founders started the organization when they made the choice to rescue a blind lab/shar-pei mix from a high-kill shelter in Gary, Indiana. This decision has led them to share the love and joy that rescued pets bring to their lives with others.

adoptions8At Mended Hearts, they do not accept owner surrenders of their pets, except in very rare circumstances. It is their firm belief that adopting a pet means committing to that animal for the entirety of its life. For this reason, Mended Hearts has many resources to help people keep their pets in the home that it has already become comfortable in.

adoptionsMended Hearts chooses to focus its efforts on dogs and cats that have no voice. These animals, which are in shelters or found as strays, have the greatest need for finding a loving home. More information on their adoption process and applications can be found on their website, www.mendedhearts.org.

For individuals interested in adopting exotic animals, we strive to maintain a healthy working relationship with EARPS, the Exotic Animal Rescue and Pet Sanctuary.

adoptions5EARPS is a collection of volunteers, working together as a non-profit rescue group to significantly improve the quality of life for pocket pets, exotic pets, and non-traditional pets. They accomplish their goal through fostering, adopting, educating, and assisting in the maintenance of a healthy pet population through spaying and neutering.

adoptions3EARPS currently has two anoles, two guinea pigs, a hamster and a gerbil available for adoption in Indianapolis.
