Adopting with Motley Zoo

Motley Zoo Animal is a foster based rescue- which is different than an animal shelter. Knowing the difference will help you immensely in the process of finding a new family member!

We encourage you to look into some of the differences in how we can serve you vs that of a shelter. Neither is better or worse, rather it is dependent on what you want- and therefore helping you set realistic expectations for those desires. 


Just like bookstores and libraries both have books but operate differently, so do foster based rescues and shelters.


We cannot do what shelters can, neither can shelters do what we do- but together, we operate in a complimentary way to offer the most options for pets and people.

In short our adoption service is:

  • Personalized

  • Focused on matching compatibility over speed

  • Establishes a relationship rather than performs a transaction


As a result of the above, we are very successful at making long term matches with few returns!
