Our Adoption Process:

The first step in the adoption process is to complete an adoption application. You may be asked additional questions, or to expand your answers. If approved, we can then set up a meeting with the pet to decide is he or she is the right fit for your family. You may be asked to allow a home inspection prior to taking home the animal. Adoption fees cover spay or neuter, deworming, transport, shelter fees, vaccinations and veterinary cots up until adoption. The adoption fees for dogs is $275 for puppies or adults. Adoption fees for cats are $135 for a kitten, $235 for two kittens, $100 for an adult, $220 for a mother kitten pair, and $75 for a senior pet. You will be asked to sign an adoption contract and health disclosure. You will be provided with a copy of the medical and shelter records. Spay and neuter non-negotiable.

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.
