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.
We promote animal rescue and adoption. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application, and if approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted. OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for dogs, however, the adopter MUST pay for all transportation fees. NOTE: As we believe proper healthcare of one's pet is a requirement of good ownership, MHCR only adopts out dogs that have been fully vetted and altered. ADOPTION FEE: $125.00 (includes spay/neuter, shots, microchip, medicines and medical procedures, if necessary) Many of the rescues MHCR accepts into its adoption program require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. There is an additional $ 50 charge for animals that have undergone heart worm treatment, received orthopedic care, and have been treated for specialized medical conditions such as "cherry eye", mange, dental disease, Heartworm infection, amputations, dental disease, and simple neglect are just some of the challenges MHCR manages. Such illnesses require additional expenses and resources leading to a nominal increase in our standard adoption fee. In this way, we can provide the most optimal veterinary care to prepare our rescues for adoption. Please LIKE and share our Facebook page www.facebook.com/missyshavencr Thanks!
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.
