Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee's are $20.00 for dogs and $10.00 for cats. This includes a free veterinary exam certificate (valid with clinics listed on the certificate only), a discount coupon for the pets spay/neuter ($15. for female cats and all dogs, $10. for male cats, valid with any veterinarian) and vaccinations are started at the time of adoption or before.

We do not place animals in homes that plan to chain them or tie them out for extended periods of time. If you want an outside only pet we would like to see them live in a fenced yard or a secluded home away from the dangers of busy streets and lots of neighbors.

We require that all our pets are spayed/neutered with in 60 days of adoption or by the age of 6 months. We do not adopt animals out on a trial basis and the only accepted reason for a return is a documented medical condition that is fatal to the pet and or would cost the new owner several hundred dollars to treat. This must be a condition that the animal had at the time of adoption, you must present written documentation from a Veterinarian and it must be with in two weeks of the adoption date.

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.
