Our Adoption Process:

Our current fee schedule is as follows:
Cats & Kittens = $40
Puppies = $50
Dogs = $60
These fees include all age appropirate vaccinations, including Rabies and Heartworm Testing for Adult dogs. Part of the adoption fee for kittens and puppies may be applied toward the cost of spay/neuter in the case of puppies/kittens. No adult dog or cat leaves the shelter without being spayed/neutered. Our contract requires that the animal be provided with food, shelter and veterinary care throughout its life and also stipulates that the adopted animal, if deemed unsuitable, must be returned to the shelter. The contract also stipulates that if, at any time, it is learned that conditions of the contract are not being met, representatives of the shelter may retireve the animal.

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.
