With a small group of core donors, Operation Adopt, Burbank, was funded as a test spot for recently passed “puppy mill” legislation to see if people really would adopt orphaned shelter animals instead of “buying” commercially bred animals at a pet shop.
1256 adoptions later - we think the answer is yes! And, not only have there been adoptions, the adoptions are not finalized until a home visit is complete which is the platinum standard of care in giving these special animals a guided journey into their new life. You can just image the amount of volunteer hours it takes to get each and every animal into a new home. Thank you volunteers!
In addition to the volunteers, funding is a critical element of Operation Adopt’s ability to stay open.
Operation Adopt does not receive any federal, state or local funding. Community donations fund a large portion of the operating budget, but donations alone don’t cover the cost of providing excellent care, medical attention and a clean environment. Adoption fees help offset the additional expenses.
Operation Adopt belongs to the community and we’d like to invite you to stop by on June 29th during open hours to see the changes we’ve made and to consider a donation or order one of the following gifts from Amazon and bring it with you or ship it to Operation Adopt, 3318 W Magnolia, Burbank, CA 91505.
