Our Adoption Process:

All adopters are required to fill out an adoption application. This allows us to make a better match based on the adopter's needs. If you rent, we must have approval from the landlord prior to an adoption. Adoption fees for cats are $36 to $114dollars plus license fees if applicable. Dogs adoption prices range from $106 to $350 plus license fees if applicable. We also have rabbits and some other pocket pets available. All dogs and cats are altered and microchipped prior to adoption. Rabbits are also altered. With your adoption your pet will receive a free wellness examination at one of a number of local veterinarians. More questions? Please call us for information.

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.
