The Cortez Animal Shelter offers area residents a wonderful opportunity to adopt pets that are in need of a home. At any given time, the Cortez Animal Shelter has 15 - 25 cats and 16 - 20 dogs that are in need of a home. You can view our adoptable pets online.
Fees for animal adoptions are $85 for dogs, $45 for cats, and include the animal being spayed or neutered, the first set of shots and a free vet visit. There is also a $15 Microchip fee for every animal.
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
