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.
WE CANNOT HOLD A DOG LONGER THAN A FEW DAYS.
We require a contract to be signed upon adoption.
We no longer adopt to anyone in Dearborn, Ohio, Switzerland, Ripley or Jefferson counties in Indiana. Apologies for any inconvenience. Please check out your local shelter to adopt if you are within one of these counties.
Adoption is by appointment ONLY. IF YOU SHOW UP WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT, YOU WILL BE TURNED AWAY.
Appointments are available daily, BEFORE NOON, NO EXCEPTIONS. I cannot be available if you show up after noon, so please plan accordingly when scheduling your appointment.
We foster out of our home. Due to several people who have recently asked for our address and then never showed up we have a new policy. When you set up the appointment, we will give you our phone number. When you get to town, you will text us for directions the rest of the way. Thank you for your understanding.
WHERE DO OUR ADOPTION FEES GO??
We get this question a lot and would like to break it down for anyone who would like to know.
Dog food - We pay about $200 per week for dog food for the dogs and puppies in our care.
Vaccinations - $100-200 per litter depending on litter size and how long the puppies are here (puppies that are here when they are due for a second or third vaccination receive those).
De-worming - $30-50 per litter depending on litter size, and again how long the puppies are here.
We keep 1/3 of the adoption fee for our expenses. The other 2/3 is donated to a charity that we support (www.isfoundation.com).
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.
