Featured Pet of the Month

August's Pet of the Month!!!

Etta is about 4 years old and came into the rescue after her family had left her behind after they moved. She took a turn for the worse with all the different changes in her world but has made a full recovery and is patiently waiting for her forever home! She looks great and generally is full of playfulness. She is still extremely affectionate and will make a wonderful companion for any family!! If interested, please contact us today!

All of our animals have received at a minimum, updated vaccinations, tested for heartworm (dogs) and preventative given, tested for feline leukemia (cats), have been spayed or neutered if over 6 months of age and have a microchip ID implant.

Who We Are

Southwest Metro Animal Rescue and Adoption Society is a non-profit organization committed to the rescue of abandoned, abused and stray domestic animals.

We believe the animal-human bond is strengthened through education of the public on the humane treatment of animals, pet population control and support for animal protection laws.

We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have any paid staff and receive no government funding. Our founding members have over 35 years combined experience in the animal rescue field. We have established federal tax-exempt status as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.

Southwest Metro Animal Rescue does not operate a shelter building, and is a volunteer foster home-based organization that hosts regular scheduled monthly Pet Adoption Days. Our procedure is to evaluate the animal, provide necessary medical care (including spay/neuter), place in a caring foster home, and finally find a suitable forever home for each pet. We rely on donations of food and supplies to care for the pets. We maintain a no-kill policy except in cases when euthanasia is deemed the only viable, reasonable and humane option.
