Adoption

ADOPTION
$150.00 for a Un-Altered Dog

$75.00 for a Un-Altered Cat 
- includes a basic wellness check from our veterinarian, vaccinations, de-worming, rabies vaccination, spay/neuter.

 

If you feel you are a match with one of our animals and commit to the adoption, you must pay the adoption fee in full. We will then schedule the spay/neuter appointment with our local vet, transport the animal, and you will be notified when the animal is ready for pickup from the vet. If the basic check includes additional recommendations of treatment, it will be your responsibility to cover the charges if you so choose to have additional treatments done. If your new pet is not of age for a spay/neuter, your application will be dated in which the animal must altered by. If you live out of town and want to bring the animal back for the spay/neuter, you may make arrangements with us for an appointment with our local veterinarian. If you do not want to make arrangements with us for the alter, you will be responsible for the additional costs of a spay/neuter with your own veterinarian. The adoption fee does not change in either circumstance. A citation may be issued if you are not compliance with the spay/neuter statute by the date listed on your application
