The Rescue Crew will strive to set ourselves apart from other organizations by maintaining both proactive and reactive support and communication with our team members, fosters, volunteers and prospective and past adopters (maintaining an “Adopters Welcome” way of thinking and conducting business).
Adopters Welcome philosophy: This way of thinking is an approach to adoptions that embraces community members, encourages them to adopt, and helps them and their pets succeed. The approach also acknowledges the connection among all local animal welfare organizations and the impact adoptions, or lack thereof, can have on all of the animals in the communities in which we serve. The approach builds on new ways of thinking and working to reduce barriers to adoptions that sometimes exist within the animal rescue/welfare community.

In general, this means establishing and nurturing new relationships, maintain ongoing dialogue and building upon existing relationships, and conducting post-adoption conversations to follow-up with adopters in an effort to provide ongoing support and do our best to ensure appropriate and proper placement of our animals we place and reduce potential risks of returns by providing proactive support and tips to assist individuals when bringing a new animal into the home.
Communications and the nurturing of relationships will be handled through a variety of mediums, such as texts, private/instant messaging, FB friending and posting, emails and telephone conversations (but the preferred and most often beneficial communication is through personal contact—either in person or through telephone conversations).
