Dog Adoptions

Congratulations on your decision to adopt a dog or puppy! Not only will you be supplying a dog a loving home, but you'll also be providing a room at an animal shelter for another dog to be rescued, as well! Shelter dogs for adoption are incredible buddies who became the innocents of family catastrophe, unlucky change in circumstances, or irresponsible owners. The necessity for canine adoptions is multiplied by an excess of pet dogs bred for profit, which leads to about 4 million adoptable dogs being put down annually due to overpopulation. Let our team help you locate the perfect adoptable dog that will shower you with appreciation and devotion for the rest of his life.

Cat Adoptions

Here in the U.S.A, 70% of animals killed in pet shelters are cats. Local animal shelters and pet rescues teem with adoptable cats and kittens with so much love to give and they need a permanent family. At Bark N Scratch Outpost, our team is dedicated to helping resolve the homeless pet epidemic by fostering cat adoptions and education on how to get ready and care for your new feline companion.
