We are often asked why we charge a fee for our animals when animals are available for “free” in newspaper ads or in front of the local supermarket. While we are grateful that you’ve chosen to adopt a shelter animal, the reality is that we, too, must pay for staffing, electricity, heat and food. Donations only cover a portion of these costs. But, if you compare what you get with an adoption from the DCSPCA to a “free” animal, you’ll see that we offer the best value by far. Chews Adoption!
