Meet Alex: Adoption Counselor & Stay Coordinator at Kittery Animal Hospital

WRP: What should someone do if they come across a stray? 

The best thing to do is call the police as they are equipped with tools and strategies to locate the owners—much more common now with microchips.

WRP: What happens when you take a stray from the police or an animal control officer?

I assess and  meet their medical needs.  After ten days of using social media to further attempt family reunification, we begin the process of making them available for adoption.  This includes determining their personalities to make sure I find the best homes to fit their temperaments.

WRP: Do you get pets from other sources, too.

Alex: Yes, we do.  We have a relationship with shelters in the south and arrange to save dogs that otherwise would be euthanized.  On average, we are able to save 3 - 10 dogs a month.  

WRP: How do people see the pets you have available for adoption?

Alex: We have viewing hours that are posted on Facebook and people can call to make an appointment.  They can fill out an application which we review, and if approve, we have the family and adoptee meet to assess the match.

WRP: What should people know when taking a new pet home?

Alex: Just like us, each animal has its own personality.  In general, adult cats are the easiest to make the transition.  I always tell people to allow for the animals to make an adjustment.  Don't overwhelm them.  Keep visitors away for a few days and allow the pets to get used to the routines, and even smells, of their new family.
