Adopt! Adopt! Adopt! Adopt! Adopt!

Ask any of the llamas what they want and they will all answer the same. They want a loving home where they will be respected and cared for. Lush green pastures, crunchy hay, yummy supplements, minerals and fresh water are things that they have dreamt about but never thought would be a reality. Toenail trimming will ease the pain of weary feet. Yearly shearing and lots of shade will cool sweltering bodies. Shelter from rain, winter winds and snow will bring sighs of comfort and gratitude. Routine vaccinations and de worming protocols will gladly be tolerated. Well perhaps there will be some resistance but they are after all, llamas.

Do you have what it takes?

Yes, there are minimum requirements. No rescue llama should end up in another rescue situation. In other words, we want the best for them. But the requirements aren't difficult to meet and we bet you already have things in place. Just to make sure you do, we will help you by providing...

Minimum Standards of Care

The ©2005, Camelid Community Standards of Care Working Group states: Minimum Standards of Care are mandatory to llama and alpaca survival and humane treatment. These are the most basic requirements that all llamas and alpacas must have for physical well-being and, as such, define minimum requirements for animal control officers and government officials investigating questionable llama and alpaca care situations.

  • WATER: Animals should have continuous access to potable drinking water.
  • NUTRITION: Animals should have nourishment adequate to sustain life and health.
  • SHELTER: Animals should have natural or man-made shelter that enables them to find relief from extreme weather conditions. The sheltered area must allow for the ability to stand, lie down, rest and reasonably move about.
  • MOBILITY: Animals should have a living area through which they can move freely and exercise independently.
  • NEGLECT: Animals should have a physical appearance free from signs of serious neglect. Signs of serious neglect may include such things as crippled ambulation due to severely curled toenails, ingrown halters, or living conditions not meeting the minimums listed above.
  • SAFETY: Animals should be reasonably safeguarded from injury or death within their defined living environment and/or when traveling.
  • CRUELTY: Animals should be reasonably safeguarded from cruel treatment and actions that endanger life or health or cause avoidable suffering.
  • SOCIALIZATION: Llamas and alpacas are herd animals and should not live alone without a companion animal. A cria (a baby llama or alpaca under six months) should not be raised apart from other llamas or alpacas.

Ready, Set, Adopt!

Adoption coordinators of Northeast Llama Rescue, Southeast Llama Rescue and Southwest Llama Rescue are diligently working to find great homes for these deserving rescue llamas.
