facts about Quixote Humane:
- Quixote Humane, Inc is an all volunteer organization. There are no paid staff.
We do not have a facility. All of our dogs are cared for in volunteer foster
family homes until they are adopted.
Adoptions are not finalized until the dog is spay or neutered, current on core
vaccinations including rabies, tested for heartworm and several tick borne
disease if they are over six months old upon intake, are on heartworm
preventative and microchipped. Younger dogs maybe placed in your home as a
"foster-to-adopt" until they are ready for adoption.
Our adoption fees are higher than many rescues because we also provide
extraordinary care for old, sick and injured dogs. We do not receive any
government assistance so our medical expenses must be covered by adoption fees,
donations, and grants.
The Adoption Application requires two personal and a veterinary references, pet
ownership history, and a home visit to make sure the home and property are safe
and secure for the dog.
We do not adopt small dogs or puppies to homes with children under school age.
We also want to meet all family members and other pets in the home to assess
compatibility with the rescue dog.
