Our Adoption Process:
In general, the adoption fee is $150 which helps to cover the cost of vetting, age-appropriate vaccinations, and spay or neuter. The adoption fee for seniors or dogs with certain chronic medical issues is $100. If the animal is a puppy too young to alter, the fee is $125. We do request that the adopter get the final set(s) of shots if the puppy has not yet had all the sets recommended for full immunity. We recommend that the puppy be kept off the ground in public places until all shots have been given. We require that the puppy be spayed or neutered as soon as they reach 6 months of age. Refusal to do so will result in denial of your adoption request. If the animal has required medical care above and beyond the norm, the adoption fee could be higher. If microchipping is requested, an additional $42 fee will be charged. If we are unable to arrange for volunteer transport for adoptions outside our area, it will be necessary for us to arrange for paid transport at a cost of approximately $140. Completion of an adoption application as well as a veterinarian reference is required.
