Our Adoption Process:The dog/puppy adoption fee is normally $75.00, we do have special adoption fees for some dogs that can range from $50 to $150. The cat/kitten fee is $45.00
The adoption includes: Spay/neuter,1st shot, bordetella for dogs, microchipping (with free registration) and up to 45 days of Shelter Care Insurance. Total value of over $200.00 in services.Rabies tag is also included in the adoption.
TLHS adopted a mandatory spay/neuter policy in Feb. 2007. This means that all animals adopted will have to be spayed or neutered before the adopter takes them home. If the animal you would like to adopt is not "fixed" the process is normally - we will transport the animal to one of our volunteer vet offices to get spayed/neutered and you will be able to pick up the animal at the vet office (usually the next day).
We generally prefer that persons adopting animals be 21 years of age. However, persons 18-20 may adopt animals if they live on their own. We require that adoptive families not be restricted from owning pets by any rental agreements and that they have adequate facilities for the type animal they are adopting. Lap dogs, or cats that have been declawed, may need to stay inside. Big, active dogs may need to be outside in a large yard. Beyond that, the individual must sign an adoption statement promising to meet the animal's basic physical needs, that the animal is for themselves and not a third party, and that they will not sell the dogs to an animal research facility.
