Our Adoption Process:

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please stop by to visit and fill out an application. If you do not live in the Terre Haute area, please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail and we can fax or e-mail you an application!

The fee for adopting a dog is $125*.
This includes their spay/neuter, first vaccinations (not including rabies), worming, identification tag and microchip, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, first office visit at participating Veterinary Offices

*Some select animals may have special adoption fees.

The fee for adopting a cat or kitten is $85.00.
This includes their spay/neuter, first vaccination (not including rabies), worming, identification tag microchip, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, first office visit at participating Veterinary Offices, one year's membership in the THHS, use of our Dog Park (if you should have a dog).

With an adoption you have the option of having your other pets microchipped for $25. Microchipping is also available to the public for $35 per animal. Micro chipping improves the odds of your lost pet being returned to you! Many homeless animals lose their tags, and since they do not have a pocket for a wallet, they have no way to identify themselves!

Please put identification on your pets!

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.
