Adoption donations help to offset the costs associated with routine vetting, day-to-day care, behavior evaluations/training, and unforeseen medical expenses. All animals in the care of One Love Animal Rescue Group are up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested (if over 6 months of age), and started on monthly heartworm and flea & tick preventatives. Our adoption donations are tax-deductible, as we are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization. Please consult your tax professional for additional information.
One Love Animal Rescue Group, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of a network of foster homes and dedicated volunteers. All of our adoptable pets live in a loving home environment and will be brought up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped prior to adoption. Any additional medical concerns will also be addressed prior to adoption. We encourage potential adopters to browse our adoptable pets on our website and attend adoption events to meet the animals in person. If a particular pet catches your eye, we recommend not wasting any time prior to submitting an application.
If you’re unsure which adoptable pets might be a good fit for your family, fill out an application, select animal name “TBD”, and be sure to include detailed information about your living situation, activity level, and any animal preferences you might have (e.g., age, max weight, activity level, etc.), so that a volunteer can review your application and make appropriate recommendations. Our adoption process begins when you submit an application and includes a phone interview, a veterinary reference check, two personal reference checks, a landlord check (if applicable), a home visit, and a meet with your pets (if applicable). Once these steps have been completed and your application is approved, it will remain on file with the rescue until you adopt a pet or cancel the application.
Most frequent questions and answers
The duration of the adoption process is largely dependent upon on the availability of the applicant, although most adoptions are completed within 2-4 weeks from the date an application is submitted.
In most cases, we do not require adopters to have fenced in yards. While all dogs require adequate exercise and play, we understand that there are numerous ways to check that box.
One Love Animal Rescue Group, Inc. routinely pulls animals from local animal shelters (ACCT Philly, South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter, Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center, etc.), in addition to local owner surrenders and shelters/rescues across the United States.
No, we do not DNA test our adoptable animals. DNA testing is costly, time consuming, and is often not indicative of behavior traits of mixed breeds. Instead, we rely on our veterinary partners to help us identify likely breed(s), but at the end of the day it’s important to remember that this is just an educated guess and doesn’t make an animal any less desirable.
