Process

The process begins with submitting an application for the animal you are interested in adopting. After your application is reviewed, we will contact you for an appointment for you to meet the animal. The meeting will help determine if the animal is a right fit for your home. If approved, we will set up a time for you to bring home your new family member.


Fees

Our general adoption fee for cats and dogs is $75, which includes their spay or neuter, rabies vaccine, bordetella vaccine, FVRCP or DAPP vaccine, and FIV/FeLV or heartworm test. If you are adopting a kitten or puppy who is too young to be spayed or neutered, arrangements will be made to have them altered. The adoption fee also depends on species, number of animals adopted, and if any adoption promotions are occurring.


Rules

  • All adoption decisions are handled by our team and are final.
  • You must be 18 years old to adopt.
  • To encourage important consideration and successful adoptions, you must wait a day before finalizing an adoption.
  • Adoptions are legal documents and subject to the terms listed in the adoption contract.

​Although all of our animals are different in their own ways, they all share a common need—a good home with a loving family. The adoption process is simple and the rewards are beyond measure.
