Our Adoption Process:

All pets adopted from the Shelter are required to be spayed or neutered at time of adoption. If they are not, the adopter is responsible for the cost of spay/neuter surgery. If they are, the adopter must pay an adoption fee ($130 dog/$90 cat). Permanent Identification of microchip or tattoo is required prior to release from the shelter. The fee for a microchip is $15. There is a $15 rabies vaccination charge for all pets where vaccines cannot be verified as current.

PLEASE CONTACT THE SHELTER WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

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.
