Pet Rescue By Judy
For people leaving negative comments about PRBJ because they didn't take their unwanted pets -- Every single no kill shelter is full to the brim with unwanted pets. You are not a special case, I'm sorry to tell you, but the people at the organizations like this hear stories just like yours multiple times a day. To add to that, most of the kill shelters are also packed. You're thinking about only yourself and not the 20 other people who were there that day trying to drop off a cat or dog just like you. Do you understand how much space 1 dog takes up? Every animal you try to force into a no kill shelter makes them less able to actually SAVE the animals on the streets or death row in the kill shelters. And most of the time it's for the dumbest, pettiest of reasons. Judy is one of the kindest, most dedicated people I've ever met in my years of volunteering with animal shelters. The animals at PRBJ are safe, happy and on their way to healthy. Please spay/neuter and foster if you can!

I rescued for the first time thru PRBJ and the experience was awesome. My new best friend Bailey was exactly has they described and has been the best decision I could have made. The policy's were not strict and found the Volunteers to be very helpful. The animas all looked well cared for and happy.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
