Courtesy Post Information

In order to help as many animals as possible, Animal Advocates provides courtesy postings for adoptable cats and dogs. Courtesy posts comprise of animals whose owners, for a variety of reasons, have made the difficult decision to rehome the pet. Even though these animals are not directly associated with Animal Advocates, they are still in need of new homes and we offer advertisement on our website for greater exposure.

For any animal identified as a “Courtesy Post,” read the following information:

  • Unless specifically indicated, Animal Advocates will not handle any part of the adoption process or collect an adoption contract or fee for the animal.
  • Animal Advocates has not evaluated or interacted with courtesy post animals and cannot attest to the temperament, health and/or other information regarding the animal.
  • Animal Advocates assumes no liability, financial, or legal responsibility for said animals.
  • As the owner will screen all applicants, please use the contact information listed for each individual animal for all inquiries on courtesy posts. Contact information will be shared with the private individual in order to facilitate direct communication between potential adopters and the current owner of the animal.
