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.

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.
