*All adoptions include a free vet exam, redeemable within two weeks of the adoption date, and a temporary leash (dogs) or cardboard carrier (cats and rabbits).

Other Policies:

*All dogs/puppies and cats/kittens must be altered (spayed or neutered) before the pet can go home with you. If the pet that you adopt is not yet altered, we will schedule your new pet an appointment at the time of adoption for it to be altered at the neighboring spay/neuter clinic. This means that not all pets adopted will get to go home the same day.

*For prospective dog adoptions where there is already an existing dog or dogs in the home, there will need to be a mandatory dog introduction before we can proceed with the adoption. If you are adopting a dog, and have a cat at home, please make staff aware of this prior to adoption.

*Most of our pets come to us as strays, therefore we are unable to guarantee the health, temperament, or age of any adopted pet. Pets are adopted "as is."

*Payment methods that we accept are exact change cash, money order, or check with i.d. and current address imprinted on the check. We do not accept credit or debit cards, and cannot accept business checks or out of state checks. If you are paying by cash, we are not able to make change.
