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.
While this process may seem cumbersome, it is necessary to ensure that each animal we adopt out goes to a permanent, loving, stable home that is suited to the unique needs of both the animals and their guardians. As "matchmakers" for pets and guardians, we want to ensure that our matches last!
If you are approved for adoption, there is an adoption fee for cats and dogs that ranges from $50.00 to $250.00, depending on what expenses the shelter has incurred on the animal's behalf. Reptile, small mammal, and bird adoption fees start at $25.00.
If the animal is not already neutered, there is a $50.00 alter deposit, refundable within 6 months upon providing proof to the shelter that the animal was altered. There is also a $50.00 medical deposit, refundable within 6 months upon providing proof to the shelter that you have taken the animal for it's first vet visit, including all required vaccinations.
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.
