Come Meet our Pets:

Our rabies/adoption clinics are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month with the exception of December when we do not have a clinic and in February when it will be the 2nd Saturday.
Our clinics are always held at Wash & Wag a pet grooming salon behind Jiffy Lube on Hwy One at Midway.
Please check our web site for all the dates of our clinics nd other events.

Our Adoption Process:

We have a Rabies/Adoption clinic once per month. We keep our costs for shots low. We also micro chip. There is a adoption fee of $75. $50 of this fee is refunded once we have proof that the cat/kitten has been spayed or neutered. We micro chip the cat free once this has been done. The adoptee signs a contract with requirements that if the adoption does not work out they are to return the pet to us and the fee will be refnded. We check out the applicant with their vet if they have one. If not we recommend one in their area.

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 cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
