The adoption process is not difficult; it is aimed at assuring that you and your cat or dog are good matches and will have a long and happy future together.
A questionnaire gathers information about you, your family, and any other pets you may have. Then, in a brief adoption review, one of our adoption counselors will discuss your compatibility with the cat or dog you have selected.
Our standard adoption fees are as follows and help cover a portion of the cost of the services included in our adoption packages:
*If an animal cannot be spayed/neutered prior to leaving the Shelter (e.g. they are too young), we are required to charge a $35 Spay/Neuter deposit in addition to the adoption fee. Once verification of sterilization is provided, these monies are refunded.
The adoption fee for all cats includes:
A complete physical exam at a participating veterinarian
Feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, calici virus, and pneumonitis vaccinations

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.
