Our Adoption Process...
The adoption fee to adopt a dog or puppy is $45.00.This includes age appropriate vaccinations and anything the dog or puppy needs while in our care. It includes worming medication, parvo/distemper 7 in 1 shot and state required rabies vaccination if the dog is over four months old. If under four months old, you are responsible to see your veterinarian for any further puppy shots needed and rabies vaccinations.
The adoption fee barely covers our costs and does not include spay/neuter. You are required to have the animal spayed or neutered. We have several options that offer very good discounts for animals that are adopted from our shelter. When funding is available, Partners for the Cuba Pound will pay for the spay/neuter surgery or issue you a voucher to help with the spay/neuter costs if used at one of our participating veterinarians. You must fill out an adoption application and be approved by a staff member. If you rent, landlord permission is a requirement.
We are open to the public seven days a week from 9:00 - 3:00. Posting on Facebook that you want a particular pet will not place that pet on hold for you You must contact the shelter and talk to a staff member and come in and fill out an adoption application.
Applications are reviewed carefully, references are checked, vet records are checked and it does not matter if you were first to call or first to come in. Every animal is different and will have different needs. Therefore, adoption selection is based on what the staff feels will be the best environment and home for the animal. There is no first come first serve when it comes to placement. We do the best we can to help our shelter animals find the second chance they deserve.
The adoption fee to adopt a cat is $20.00 and that includes wormer and state required rabies vaccination if the cat is over 4 months old.
If you live in Cuba city limits, there is also an additional $5.00 charge for a City Animal license. This applies to both dogs and cats over 4 months old and can be renewed annually at City Hall or the Cuba Animal Shelter with proof of current rabies vaccination.
