Our Adoption Process:

Adopting a friend

Our adoption fee of $100.00 includes the following; first vaccination, deworming, spay/neuter, and microchipping.

Our adult dogs are heartworm tested and on prevention and adult cats are FELV and FIV tested.

Due to potential disease, predators, and other dangers, all our cats are adopted as inside only pets. All potential adopters must first complete an adoption application before being considered. A home visit is required before all adoptions are approved.

We welcome out of state adoptions! Adopters are responsible for transporting their new pet to its new home via ground transportation or accompanied by the adopter in the cabin of an aircraft.....we don't adopt pets out to be treated as luggage and will not allow them to travel in the cargo compartment of an aircraft. For an additional charge we can have a pet transported to certain areas up and down the east coast. You can view the website of the transport that we use at Please click on schedule to see a list of stops that they make. Due to the amount of dogs they transport they do not provide "door to door" deliveries so it will be necessary for you to meet them at one of their stops listed in the schedule. If your area is not covered, you will be responsible for transporting your pet to its new "forever" home.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
