Welcome to our Adoption Page! Animals for Awareness will occasionally have domestic and less exotic critters available for adoption to the right home. Feel free to peruse this page and contact us if any of these wonderful pets interest you. We have made it easy for you by putting our Adoption Application  right here on our website for you. Feel free to download it, fill it out and send it back to us when you’re ready to adopt one of our precious critters! Please note that although we may have them up for adoption on occasion, we do not take in the following animals from the general public: dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, pot belly pigs and iguanas (and a few other animals). Thank you!

Has your Adoption Application already been approved? If so, you’re one step closer to bringing your new family member home! Please download the Adoption_Contract and read it carefully. Fill out as much as you can and bring it with you when you go to meet your new pet. Together with Kim or Vicki you will finish the adoption contract and go over your pet’s history and care requirements. After all questions have been asked and answered by everyone involved and applicable adoption fees paid, you and your pet will be free to go! We will always be available for aftercare support, so you will never feel alone in your adoption adventure!!


Oreo and Creme are two of the coolest pets we have ever gotten in as a surrender. They are two female teddy bear guinea pigs that need to be placed together, as they are very bonded. But don't let that fool you! They love to be handled by people and they are very very friendly and outgoing! Message us for more information. Adoption application is above!

KITTENS! KITTENS! KITTENS! Animals for Awareness has FIVE tiny kittens! They are currently 2 weeks old and will be available for adoption in 6 weeks. The difference between the two black and white ones is that one of them has a little black dot on the corner of its nose. Thank you, Lorraine Matti for yet another wonderful photo shoot!




Looking for an older kitten? Meet Shilo! She is approximately 4 1/2 months old. She has tested negative for feline diseases, is vaccinated and wormed, and will be spayed prior to being adopted.

Shilo came is with her mom and siblings who have all been adopted. They had been found in a cage in a barn. The "finders" were going to either set them free in the woods or drop the cage of mom and kittens into the river.....Luckily, they made their way to AFA,

Shilo is a bit shy, so a quiet household will be needed. She will warm up to you after a bit, and she currently spends most of her day in the company of her mother.



We have two nice looking larger ball pythons for adoption. Neither have been probed ie sexed. They are not being housed together at the moment but they can be if adopted together. Ball pythons make excellent beginner snakes. They tend to be extremely gentle and easy to keep. They do not get very big. One is eating very well. The other is being pretty picky and prefers fresh-killed rats as opposed to fresh-killed or Frozen thawed mice. Both are fat and healthy. Adoption fee applies. Application can be found above.

We have two male sugar gliders up for adoption. We are estimating their ages to be about three years old. Both of them used to be handled quite frequently but have not been lately due to our schedules. They should be fine with the right person and a little TLC. They need to stay together and will come with their gorgeous cage. Adoption fee applies. Would prefer someone with sugar glider experience. Please pm Vicki Hansen Weiland for more information. Currently located in St. Charles.
