Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption process is fairly simple: you come by and pick out an animal you are interested in then you fill out an application. We must have 3 current references and a letter from your landlord (if you are a renter) stating it is ok for you to have an animal at your residence. Our fees are as follows : Adult Dogs $175., Puppies $225., Adult Cats $50., Kittens $125.00 - all fees include worming, shots that are good for 1year, for dogs it includes a Heartworm/Lyme test (and rest assured theyve been treated if they tested positive) and an FIV/FeLV test for cats, rabies & distemper shots good for 1 year spay/or neuter for the all animals that leave us as well as a years license for the dogs.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
