Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application and adoption fee for all animals. Landlord approval is needed for adoptions, if you are a renter.

The cost of adoptiong a cat or dog includes spay or neuter, vaccination(s), dewormer, flea treatment as needed, microchip, and a travel box or leash. Kittens are tested for Feline Leukemia and adult cats are tested for Feline Leukemia Aids. Dogs are tested for Heartworm for an additional fee upon request. You are required to purchase a dog license if you live within our jurisdiction (an annual fee) and required to register a cat (a one time fee) at the time of adoption.

Adoption fees are based on the age and type of pet being adopted, and potentially, the length of time they have been at the shelter. Cats and kittens range from $52.50 to $132.00, dogs and puppies range from $94.00 to $168.00 and other animals range from $10.50 to $50.00.

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.
