Come Meet our Pets:All of our pets live in foster homes so they can be met on an appointment only basis. We also participate in several adoption and fundraising events throughout the year. You can find us at PetSmart in Brannon Crossing in Nicholasville, KY on most Saturdays between 11ish-4ish.
Our Adoption Process:The normal adoption fee for dogs/puppies is $175/$225, which includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on shots, Heartworm tested, microchipped, AdvantageMulti application and any additional vetting deemed necessary (dental work, medications, etc.).
The normal adoption fee for cats/kittens is $75 which includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on shots, Feline Leukemia tested, Feline AIDS tested, Flea/Tick treatment and any additional vetting deemed necessary (dental work, medications, etc.)
Discounted adoption rates are often offered during special events/times. During these events we may offer reduced rates for seniors, kittens, adult cats and/or barn cats.
Our adoption process includes completing an adoption application and waiting for approval. Friends of Jessamine County Animals, Inc. wants to place all of our animals in homes that are best for the pets as well as for the family. We try very hard to make compatible matches to ensure lifetime commitments. We reserve the right to decline applications based on the pet's best interest and needs. Home visits, vet references and landlord approval are required before animals are adopted.
