Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We also end up working with at least a couple of barn colonies or people who have gotten over their head caring for their kitties every year. We help them find homes for the kittens and the adults they do not want to keep and get the ones they do want to keep all spayed or neutered, so they will not have more to find places for soon.
In the past few years we have had people asking us to take dogs as the economy has worsened. We only take in a few dogs or a litter or two of pups at a time and they run loose in our house with our personal pets
Many in our current "pride" are sanctuary, lifetime residents here due to special needs. If you have room in your heart, home and budget for special needs cats, please e-mail and we'll send you info on some of our kitties with special medical needs.
If you want to meet one of our cats e-mail or call and we will set up a time for you to meet them. We can also help transport to get a kitty or dog into a special home.
Adoption fees for dogs and puppies are listed on their individual pages. All of our dogs have been wormed and had at least two DHLPP (Distemper) vaccines, their Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccine, and their Rabies vaccine, if old enough. They have also been spayed or neutered, started on heartworm preventative (and tested if needed), have a microchip - whose registration fee is included in the adoption fee- and kept on Advantage to prevent fleas.
Kittens have had at least one FVRCP, been wormed, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and spayed or neutered. The adoption fee is $75.00 for non-fancy breed kittens. "Fancy breeds" are higher and have their adoption fee on their individual page.

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.
