Offsite Adoption Checklist

January 22, 2015

Animals are part of nature. Whichever way you chose to view it, they are part of us and they deserve to be shown affection. Today, very many animals stroll aimlessly on the streets, perhaps in search of a warm permanent place to call home. The good news is, with the contemporary animal adoption trend, many animal lovers are now turning to offsite adoption events to rescue these homeless animals. As charming as offsite adoption sounds, it’s a task that requires great planning and extra effort not to mention a sacrifice of your time. Nonetheless, it’s always worth giving it a shot. Here are some of the few things you should include in your worksheet before getting down to the actual offsite adoption process:
1. A comprehensive list of all the volunteers to undertake the task with you- This will help you in keeping a good track of all the people you expect to show up and consequently come up with a way of supervising them depending on the number.
2. Ensure you have all the necessary equipment you require for the task- These may include cages and crates among many others. This will assist in easing the transportation of the adopted animals.
3. A comprehensive breakdown of the offsite location- You want to have clear knowledge of the specific region you are going to commence your adoption procedure. Understand all, or at least the better part of, the routes and pathways or any other relevant site you are likely to find a homeless pet.
4. A camera- This may sound too obvious but it’s always important to keep a good photography record of the offsite location and all the animals traced and successfully adopted from the site. This will play a significant role in convincing prospective adopters while choosing the pets they want to adopt.
Along with these important tips, it’s absolutely important to ask yourself some few questions before you decide to bring a new pet to your home, especially if you are a personal volunteer. Decide why you want a new pet and settle on adopting the one that best fits your taste and lifestyle. If you are under an organization working with volunteers to adopt homeless animals, keep a good track on the volunteers and this will help you reach out to them easily whenever need arises for such offsite adoption events.
