Our Adoption Process...
• Must be 21 years of age or older to adopt a cat, 23 years of age or older to adopt a dog.
• Must provide a copy of your lease agreement or association by laws if you live in an apartment, condo or townhouse
• Must provide documents/receipts that specify your cat or dog’s immunizations/required tests are current (rabies, distemper and fecal (+ for dogs- heartworm test and bordetella) (+ for cats - leukemia test/vaccine)). We can call your veterinarian to get this information, if you don’t have the documents. If you know they are not current, bring the animals with you and can have them updated by the animal hospital that houses HSP.
• All adults in the household must be present and co sign the adoption agreement.
• All your currently owned dogs/cats must be spayed or neutered. This is a non-negotiable requirement.
• Heartworm prevention for dogs must also be purchased at the time of adoption and prices vary depending on the size of the animal being adopted.
Each Adoption Includes:
• Spay or neuter surgery
Vaccines current to the date of adoption *:
• Rabies vaccine
• Bordatella vaccine for dogs
• Canine Influenza vaccine for dogs
• Booster for canine and feline distemper and several other dangerous diseases
• Fecal test
• 1st deworming
• Heartworm test (dogs +6 months old)
• Leukemia test for cats
• Capstar flea treatment
• Microchip identification implant
* Boosters required for puppies and kittens (depending on age) POST adoption are the responsibility of the pet owner.
Once you have decided on an animal, you will be provided with an Adoption Questionnaire which requires name, address, phone numbers and asks some questions about your household, why you want a pet and how you plan to care for it. The Adoption Questionnaire needs to be approved by an authorized humane society volunteer. If an authorized volunteer is on site, that occurs quickly and if you’ve provided all required information on applicable lease agreements/association by laws and current immunizations/tests for any existing pets, you may be able to take your new friend home immediately. If an authorized volunteer is not on site, you’ll receive a phone call when the status is determined.
Adoption donations for adult dogs range from $59 to $399 and puppies from $159 to $599.
Adoption donations for adult cats range from $29 to $99 and kittens from $59 to $399.
We are a private pet rescue and are not affiliated with any government or national organization, and as such our adoption donations are set to cover as much of the cost for the spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, tests and medical care of our animals that is realistic. We lose money on every animal we take in as our adoption donations are less than what caring for the animals actually costs us. We ask more for puppies, kittens and purebred adults to help cover the expenses of the older mixed breed animals for which we receive minimal donations and incur significant debt. However, even at our highest prices, puppies and kittens are still half the price of pet store animals AND our animals are already altered and up to date on vaccinations.
Post Adoption Care
If you choose to give one of our deserving homeless animals a second chance at a good life, a New Pet Health Assurance Program provided by our partner veterinary clinics is available. This will cover the cost of treating shelter related illnesses should one occur, for 60 days after your adoption date up to $500. If you do not purchase this coverage, you would assume total financial responsibility for any needed medical treatment immediately after you adopt.
