Our Adoption Process:

Regular adoption fee for pups/dogs is $200 and $150 for cats/kittens, which, age appropriate, includes spay/neuter & microchip with our vet & spay/neuter clinic scheduling. Adoption fees may vary depending on the pets history or circumstances. Some older pets may be less if we do not have to do much to get them adoptable. We are not in this to make money, any funds over what we may have in one dog/cat go towards other that we have more than the adoption fee in their care. We try to keep fees as low as possible, insure good homes that are able to care for the pets, as well as continue to provide for more pets. Please inquire about adoption fee if not stated. Some adoption fees may be from $50 to $300+ depending on the pet.
Once in a while we will save a purebred pet & we will charge a higher adoption fee for them as the circumstances allow. This money that is "extra" is in no way "extra", believe us, we can show anyone how much it costs a "normal" pet to a hard luck case to be able to be ready for adoption. We don't have "extra" money, all that is collected/donated for HSLSC goes to the pets we save in one way or another. Be it food, vet care, supplies, etc. Our books are open to see where every penny goes.
Call your vet & check how much testing, vaccinating, deworming, & spay/neuter would cost just for starters. Let's not forget the matted dog that had added grooming, the sick pup that required another $100 in vet care, or the pup with a broken leg that cost another $400+ to have it taken care of after $85 in is $200 really too much for a vaccinated, dewormed, tested, & altered pet? Not to mention all the extras we include?

There is an adoption contract that must be completed also and there may be a home visit or drive by to check the home.
We do have a pre-adoption clause when needed for reserving a pet which requires payment & contract signed up front then after reference checks are done (we ask 3 days to do this) you can pick up your new family member!

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
