Our shelter is operated by the Douglas County Board of Commissioners (BOC). We strive to educate our county citizens by providing information about low-cost spay/neuter options and general information about responsible pet ownership.
Our adoption fees vary based on how long the animal has been with us and includes it's vetting fees. Please email us for the prices on specific animals. The fee includes basic vaccines and a microchip, the first year rabies vaccine, and spay/neuter surgery. If the animal is not old enough, the adopter must sign a contract and agree to get the animal spayed or neutered and get a rabies vaccine by the date stated on the contract.
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
