Welcome to the VFTA Adoption program. You can adopt a cat/dog and make them part of your beautiful family. At the same time, adopting means Voice For The Animals Foundation can rescue another animal.
The Adoption Process:
1. Meet some of our animals at the Brentwood Farmers Market on Sundays from 10:00am - 1:00pm.
- Or, you can see our adoptable cats/dogs through Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet where you will find their profile along with photos and a short video.
If you find an animal that you are interested in and need more information, you can call our Hotline number at (310) 392-5153, leave your name, call back number and detailed message, and we’ll gladly return your call to give you all the information.
2. Once you decide which cat/dog is right for you, please fill out the corresponding pre-adoption form above and
FAX to (310) 773-9027 OR E-MAIL to ADOPTION@VFTAFOUNDATION.ORG.
3. Once we approve your application, we will contact you to schedule a short phone interview and a homecheck.
4. Upon a successful interview and homecheck, the cat/dog is yours!
The Foster-to-Adopt Process:
You can help make a difference by considering the volunteer foster program. This is a program you can select if you wish to help VFTA care for a cat/dog to ensure they receive the love, attention, and stability that he/she needs and help the animal be ready for their forever home. You also make a difference because as a foster, you can socialize with the animal everyday in a way that helps us learn more about the animal which helps us place it in the correct home.
The Volunteer Foster Process:
As a foster, you MUST commit to take the cat/dog to the VFTA adoption events because that is where we find the family that will fall in love with them and they can find their forever home.
Most animal care agencies focus on the rescue of puppies and kittens. VFTA specializes in rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for elderly, infirm, abused, or abandoned animals. These animals are at the highest risk of being euthanized in animal shelters. Abandoned animals often lack preventative care and are sometimes physically abused, which manifests in behavior problems. Prior to adoption, elderly animals first require extensive vet care, either to treat a pre-existing condition or to make sure that one does not exist. Most elderly comparison animals come to us frightened, mistrustful and depressed. They require both vet care for their medical problems and help from a behaviorist/trainer to overcome the problems resulting from the abandonment and neglect.
