Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Adoption fees include: spay/neuter of dog, shots, fecal exam, heartworm test, rabies shot, and bordetella shot and microchip.
An adoption contract must be signed and adoption fees collected prior to receiving the dog. There will be a home visit conducted prior to adoption. Our office hours vary so leave a message and we will return your call during next business hours. Response to e-mails is often the same day. All dogs are up-to-date on shots, are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and will go through a health certification process with the vet. Included in the contract is a clause that states the dog is to be returned to HSSC and no one else if family decides not to keep the dog for any reason at any time, if pet is returned with a 5 day period half of the adoption fee will be returned, after the first 5 days none of the adoption fee will be refunded.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
