Welcome to Peyton's Place Animal Rescue...

Rescue. Advocate. Educate.

Mission Statement

Peyton’s Place Animal Rescue is dedicated to rescuing small domesticated animals that come from a variety of situations, be it a kill shelter, partner rescue group or an individual that can no longer care for their pet. We are committed to ensure animals that come into our group are fully vetted and have clean bills of health before finding them the best possible home.

We are a registered 501(c)(3) non profit. We do not take salaries. Every dollar goes to the animals.

How you can help:

Screening Applications: We need volunteers that can call references for applications we receive of both potential fosters and adopters. This entails calling references, landlords, checking social media sites and setting up home visits. This can be done right from the comfort of your home! 

Home Visits: Home visits are are crucial part of the adoption process. We will not allow an animal to be adopted without a home visit and we do not accept photos of someone’s home in lieu of a home visit. A home visit typically takes 15-30 minutes. There is a standard form to be followed while at the home to ensure the pet is going to a home suitable for its needs. We want to make sure that this adoption is a perfect fit for the family and the animal. Whenever possible, we prefer the animal to attend the home visit. When an older animal, it is imperative that the animal be there during the visit. For younger dogs and puppies, it is not required. 

Adoption events: We will be hosting adoption events when we start picking up and will need people there for a couple of hours to take applications and talk to people about our animals. Having a positive presence in the community and at the events is crucial to the success of our rescue and the animals that need us. 

Fostering: Fosters are critical to the success of PPAR and the well being of the animals we serve. Each animal that goes into foster opens kennel space for another animal in need, and is often times literally the difference between life and death for that animal. All you need to foster is the ability to offer a stable environment to an animal as it waits for its forever home. Sometimes a foster will be with you for a week or two; sometimes the placement process takes a few months. While fostering might seem daunting at first, it’s important to understand that you are never in it alone. Foster coordinators work to find the dog or cat that best matches your home. We offer ongoing support to all of our fosters and we have someone available 24/7 for emergencies. Along with food and veterinary care, helpful items like crates and toys are supplied. Fosters will be asked to bring their foster to adoption events at least 2 times per month.

Perhaps the most often-asked question about fostering is, “How do you say goodbye to your foster when it’s time?” While some fosters realize that their home is the right match for the animal they are fostering, most discover that the greatest joy comes when their charge finds its forever family. When your foster animal leaves to go to its forever home its always a bittersweet event. But knowing that successful fostering saves the lives of multiple animals and helps complete families makes saying goodbye much more“sweet” than “bitter”.

In Need of Fosters

ATTN: We received a plea to take this 8 year old hound! He is super gentle & low energy & very friendly. His name is George! He is great with other dogs. He needs to put on a few pounds. Comes vetted with rabies and heart worm and vaccines. If you have EVER thought about fostering an older dog, George would be the perfect guy to be your “first” and he is in need. And seriously, he is a hound – they are the best!

PLEASE share and share and apply to foster asap! Time is limited for transport for George!

Look at this face 🙁
