Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fees may vary by pet if a pet has required special treatment. Barring such requirements fees are as follows:

Cats: $100
Dogs $150

All fees cover care and medical treatment of the pet. All pets will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. No exceptions. All pets will be up to date on veterinary care as required by their age.

In order to adopt you must fill out the application. We will contact you via phone or email to set up a face to face meeting at which point you can meet the pet as well.

We will discuss the adoption and determine if you and your chosen pet are a good fit.

A home check may be required.

Once all requirements have been met and it has been determined that both you and your chosen pet are a good fit for one another you may take your pet home.

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.
