Our Adoption Process...
Animal Allies has variable adoption fees. A higher adoption fee does not mean that we value a particular animal over another; it is simply a matter of supply and demand. Animals that are in higher demand and are adopted quickly have higher adoption fees, which then create a financial legacy for the animals that stay in our care for a longer period of time. Animal Allies accepts cash, personal checks, money orders, and VISA/MC/Discover. Adoption fees are subject to a Duluth sales tax rate of 8.375%. As a convenience for Duluth residents we are able to assist with your license application at the time of adoption. The City of Duluth pet license fee is $10.00 per year and if you apply for your pet license at our facility, we add an additional $2.50 convenience fee.
