Don't Buy - Rescue!

Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, simply because not enough people spay and neuter their animals or consider adopting when looking for a new pet. A vast majority of shelter animals are purebreds that come from breeders! The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted or fostered pets.

Our Adoption Process

Before our animals go to live with the fosters or are taken care of by the volunteers, we always verify their references to make sure our rescued animals have the best care while waiting for their forever homes.

Likewise, we ask any potential adopter fill out and submit our adoption application prior to scheduling a meet and greet with a pet in a foster home.

Completing our adoption application does not obligate you to adopt, but it is the first step towards being added to our approved list of adopters.  Applicants are approved pending vet reference and personal reference checks, and a home visit.  All current animals in the home must be spayed/neutered, current on age-appropriate vaccines as well as heartworm and flea prevention and any information provided on an application will be verified.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to send individual updates to all applicants on a pet's status due to the volume of applications our busy volunteers are processing. You may check our website for updates as we remove pets when they are no longer available. Our goal is to always make the best match possible for our rescued pets, so being the first to apply does not guarantee your application will be selected.

We do not adopt outside of the state of Texas at this time.

Thank you for your patience with our process!  We are grateful you are looking to adopt your next pet.

In Accordance With Our Goal To Place Pets In Lifelong Forever Homes, New Hope Animal Rescue has Adopted  Age Guidelines To Assist Potential Adopters In Finding Their Best Match:

Puppies and kittens are fragile and until puppies and kittens are fully trained, they may scratch, nip, jump, etc. Between ages 5-7, children learn empathy and are better equipped to treat dogs and cats properly.

Our Policy:

  • “6 Under 6”: Puppies and kittens under 6 months old are best-matched with families whose youngest child is 6 years of age or older, unless the puppy in question is a small breed.
  • Small breed puppies (under 30 lbs. full-grown) and toy breed adults (under 15 lbs.) are best-matched with families whose youngest child is 8 years of age or older.

Why do we charge an adoption fee?

Adoption fees through a rescue are more economical than purchasing an animal and paying for the vaccines, spay or neuter yourself. New Hope Animal Rescue covers initial veterinary costs before we adopt an animal to a new home. Spaying or neutering alone can cost between $150-$300, and wellness exams and vaccines can be an additional $100 or more. When needed, we also pay for costly surgeries, emergency grooming, heartworm treatments, training and more. Your fee helps us cover some of these costs and ensures we can save more animals.

How to pay the adoption fees?

We now offer an online payment option using PayPal, which is safe and secure. Just head over to either Pay Dog Adoption Fees or Pay Cat Adoption Fees page.  Do not pay an adoption fee until you have been instructed by us to do so.  

Don't have an account, no problem. After being transferred to the PayPal payment page look for the button to "Pay with Debit or Credit Card".
