Peanut’s Misfits Animal Rescue and Outreach Program

Helping people keep their pets and helping pets find their people.

 

Companions offer the homeless joy, a sense of family, and emotional  comfort. We are one of the few organizations that assist struggling pet  owners by helping their pets. We are committed to the human-pet bond and  the benefits that bond brings. No homeless person should have their  pets taken away because they can’t afford the necessary supplies for  their pets’ survival. No pets should go hungry, be uncomfortable, or  suffer. That is what we are successfully working to alleviate, reaching  out on a weekly basis in locations with high homelessness rates.

Our  goal is to save the lives of animals in need. We do so by connecting  foster and forever homes for domestic animals at risk of euthanasia or  abandonment. We pull dogs and cats from high kill shelters and  occasionally accept animals being surrendered by their owners. We  quarantine the animal for two weeks to make sure they are healthy for  adoption. We make sure their vet needs are completely taken care of,  including vaccinations and microchip. We also address minor training and  behavioral issues so that the animal has the best chance of fitting  into their new home. 

To ensure the safety and happiness  of our animals, we require that our adopters and fosters complete an  application and sign a contract. We always perform a home check to make  sure the home is safe for the animal. We also require an adoption fee  that will help cover the cost of vet care. Many animals have come from  abusive situations and we want to make sure that their next home is a  safe, happy, and forever home.

Adoption Information

 "Peanut was my first rescue when I was 16. He was a year old, He lived  in someone’s backyard up until then and they agreed to let me have him. I  snuck him into my house and tried to hide him from my parents and they  quickly discovered him. He was a terrible mean dog when I got him, he  bit me everyday for 6 months. I never gave up on him. He became part of  our family. He went to Texas with me when I moved there when I was 24.  He grew to love everyone and everything. He suffered from seizures his  whole life, he was always on medication. He passed away October 3rd 2017  after losing his 6 month battle with Congestive heart failure. He saw  me through the good times and the bad and taught me what patient and  love could do to a dog who was just misunderstood." - Casandra O
