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 www.petsllc.net/. 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.
