Our Adoption Process:

Once an animal is chosen for adoption an application will be filled out. With the application a $25.00 check or cash deposit will be left. That will hold the animal of choice for 72 hours. During that time, the application will be reviewed by the Director. If the possible adopter has or had animals, we will look to make sure they were kept up on required vaccinations. Within the 72 hour period we will contact the possible adopter and let them know our decision. From there, they will come in and pay the remainder of the adoption fee. Total fee for dogs $95, total fee for cats $70. At that time, the Adoption Agreement and microchip information will be completed. The animal will then be vaccinated against rabies, microchipped, and surgery will be scheduled. The adopted animal will be picked up from the vet by adopter after surgery.

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.
