Adopt

Why Adopt From Us?

The majority of the animals in our care have been victims of cruelty and once found themselves neglected and abandoned.

Many of them came to us broken and sick. Here at the Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary these animals experienced a loving touch, received vet care, are loved, cherished and cared for.

We hope you consider adopting an animal so that they can continue to have the happy future they deserve.

All of our animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Adopt, Don’t Shop.

Let us tell you why.

1. Cost-Efficient.

Buying a pet can easily cost $500 to $1,000 or more. Adoption costs range from $10 to $200. You’re getting more for your money AND you are saving a life.

 

When you adopt from a rescue group or sanctuary, you know what you are getting because the group has a history on the animal.

2. Education.

The group will also help you through the familiarization period because they are invested in providing a good home for that animal.

 

When you adopt a pet, you are saving a life. When you buy a pet, you not only deny a homeless animal a home, you are supporting an industry that thrives on short-changing the welfare of animals.

 

Rescue groups or sanctuaries have nothing to sell you; they will be honest with you and provide guidance.

 

Rescue groups and sanctuaries also have a lifelong commitment to their animals where breeders make a quick sale and you will never hear from them again.

3. Unconditional Love.

When you adopted, you get just as much love (if not more). An adopted animal is every bit as deserving, loving, intelligent and loyal as a purchased animal, even if you get an adult or older animal.

 

For all of these reasons, adopting rather than buying is pretty much a no-brainer!

FAQ

Common Questions About Adopting

How do I apply for adoption?

Opening your home for adoption is a wonderful and rewarding commitment. You can read more about the requirements about adoption here and you can fill out an application here.

I understand these animals came from a cruel environment. If I adopt, are they at risk to be violent?

No. We rarely see aggressive behavior in our rescued residents. BSAS only adopts out sweet, social and healthy animals.

What other animals do you have available for adoption?

We often have goats and other animals available for adoption, please check out all adoptable animals here.

Why do we need to adopt pigs in twos?

Pigs are highly social and intelligent herd animals, while they will enjoy your company, what they need most is another pig to communicate and have a meaningful relationship with. One of the reasons why pig owners give up their pigs is because their single-pig family member has become depressed and aggressive. There are exceptions, of course, however the majority of pigs don’t. We have learned that a human can never replace a fellow pig friend.
