*Legacy Adoptions - We provide valuable care and treatment for hundreds of animals every year. They are all important to us. Our adoption fees help offset the cost of housing, feeding and caring for companion animals in our shelter. Some pets need an extraordinary amount of medical intervention and care. We can help these pets by pricing animals in higher demand with a higher adoption fee. The money raised by these “Legacy Adoptions” will allow us to provide lifesaving medical treatment, let us work with behavioral issues and help us care for animals that stay here longer before they find loving homes.
Variable adoption pricing or “Legacy” adoption pricing ensures that we can provide top quality of care for all animals.

Some notes on pricing:
• Senior Person Discount Special: Senior people over 65 years of age are eligible for a lower cost adoption of a senior animal (8 years or older).
• When we run adoption specials, only one discount applies.
• While we do strive to make sure our website reflects accurate pricing, we reserve the right to change prices without notice.

*All animals will be altered (spayed/neutered) before leaving the shelter.

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.
