All animals available for adoption are already de-wormed, spayed/neutered, vaccinated for Rabies, twice vaccinated for Distemper, FIV/FeLV test for cats, Heartworm test for dogs and microchipped. Our adoption fees are as follows: Adult cats $80; Kittens $90; Purebred kittens $100, All dogs $125 for residents of IL and IN. Dog adoptions for residents of other states are $250. A gas fee of $25 will be assessed to adopters who require a home inspection and require a drive time of more than 40 minutes from Watseka, IL. Home inspections are required for dogs who require a fenced in yard, and for applicants who do not posses a solid veterinary history.

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.
