Even if you are not interested in adopting, we have a foster program (contact Paw Pals for more information) and we gladly take volunteers to help with the animals (helping to clean, feed, and walk dogs). If you are interested in volunteering, please call our office at 765-654-7717.
All potential adopters must fill out a pre-screening adoption form. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption for reasons that would be in the best interest of the pet.
We are working with local vets to provide low spaying/neutering costs so that we can offer lower adoption fees. Presently, adoption fees are $100 for dogs and $60 for cats (these fees include the spay/neuter costs, vaccinations (bordetella, distemper/parvo, and de-wormer); heart worm testing for dogs and FIV/FELV testing for cats.).
We also offer a chipping service for your pet from HomeAgain for $25.
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.
