Our Adoption Process...
Adopting a friend
Interested in adopting one of our animals? Adoption is a simple process. Adopters can fill out an application at the shelter. Requirements: Own your own home or have landlord approval for an animal; have a fenced yard or other approved method of confinement (if adopting a dog). If you currently own dogs they must be current on rabies vaccinations and El Dorado County license. Adoption fees for dog are $120.00 plus license. Cat adoption fees are $80.00.
