Adoption Assistance Program

Adoption Assistance Program: For animals we cannot accept into our rescue, we offer assistance through our Adoption Assistance Program. We provide information to help pet owners find responsible caring homes and/or we offer assistance in networking to the other rescues.

Population(s) Served

Through our Rescue and Adoption Program, we select small-breed dogs and cats from various situations to come to our facility.  Situations include owner-surrender, strays, death, divorce, kill-shelters, and via other rescues, to name a few.  Once the animal is surrender to us, we take the animal to our vet for vaccinations, heartworm testing (for dogs), and spay/neuter.  We deworm the animal and provide basic care as needed, such as grooming, ear cleaning, clipping nails, etc.  Once the animal is ready for adoption, we take pictures, write profile and place the animal on several websites for adoption to include Facebook, our website (www.RoadtoRescueLA.org(http://www.RoadtoRescueLA.org) ) Petfinder.com, Adoptapet.com, and RescueGroups.com (which links to several other sites).

 

Adopters are carefully screened via a stringent application process and vet references are checked.

Population(s) Served

When funds are available, we assist low-income members of the community with spaying/neutering, vaccinations, medical care, etc., for their pet family members.

Population(s) Served

For dogs that have been lost and then recovered, we offer a low-cost microchipping service.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goals: Continue to aggressively promote spaying and neutering, which in turn will continue to reduce the euthanasia rate in this area. Through the efforts within our rescue and our partnership with Bossier City Animal Control, we hope to one day be able to say that Bossier City Animal Control is a no-kill facility.

Continue to pull animals from Bossier City Animal Control and aggressively network and seek out other rescues to pull animals; continue to aggressively promote rescue and shelter adoptions via social media; and work towards recruiting more people (volunteers) to reach this goal.

We already have a huge following on the Ninna's Road to Rescue Facebook page and the Friends of Bossier City Animal Control Facebook page (founded in 2012 by Ninna Lopez). Our networking with other rescues and the general public continues to grow on a daily basis because we stay involved... we stay engaged.

Through social media and networking, we've been able to decrease the euthanasia rate and increase adoptions significantly in both cats and dogs. Although we still have a long road with cats due to the lack of spaying and neutering, we continue to aggressively educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    social media ,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Most of our feedback results in changes to our adoption applications and/or practices. Animal rescue is a different industry in that we primarily serve the animals. There are so many irresponsible pet owners and many try to manipulate their way into adopting from our organization. We learn from these experiences and are constantly changing strategies. These animals deserve more and better.
