Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a dog you need to bring proof of home ownership or your Landlord's contact information.

The adoption fee is $175 for dogs (cats are less) which includes Rabies, Distemper and kennel cough vaccinations. A heartworm and Lyme test and preventative. And Spay or Neuter. If the dog is not altered when you choose to adopt, the shelter will arrange the spay/neuter for you. The $175 is paid up front and the spay/neuter deposit is only returned with proof from a vet that it was done elsewhere.

If you chose to adopt but can not bring the dog home that day there is an $80 deposit to "hold".

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.
