Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our mission is to prevent and relieve the suffering of animals, aid in the enforcement of all laws relating to the subject of cruelty to animals and the lawful protection thereof, carry on a program of teaching and education on the subject of cruelty to animals and responsible pet care, reduce the overpopulation of domestic animals in the area served by the SMHS through spay/neuter and vaccination programs, seek the return of lost animals to their rightful owners, seek suitable homes for animals without owners, and obtain and maintain shelters for homeless or abused animals.
We do not operate a shelter. All animals are cared for in private homes by loving foster parents. Adoptable animals have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and are heartworm free (dogs) and FIV/FeLK negative (cats). Care includes flea and heartworm prevention.
The SMHS Adoption Contract requires a safe and secure enclosure appropriate for the size of the dog.
Adoption Fee is $125.00 for puppies and dogs, $100 for kittens and $80 for adult cats.
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.
