Our Adoption Process...
Dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and other companion animals are available at the Isle of Wight County Animal Shelter. As of March 1, 2013 we now have an adoption fee!
Dogs & Puppies are $90, Cats & Kittens are $75 and all other companion animals are $25 unless stated differently.
Those fees include:
• Vaccinations & deworming (including Rabies shot)
• and Heartworm testing for dogs
The cost for this medical care at local veterinary offices would easily exceed $200.00.
An application must be filled out and approved before adopting one of our pets.
