Adoptions and Adoption Fees
We have many adoptable animals at our shelter with new ones arriving every day. Every adoption is made in the best interest of the animal. All applications are taken as quickly and thoroughly as possible, however, your patience is appreciated as the needs of the animals in the shelter always come first, which may delay your application process.
Dog adoption fees are $150 and cat adoption fees are $100 regardless of the size, age or medical condition of the animal when they arrived at the shelter. This includes all shots and the spay or neuter of the pet.
It is our policy that every animal adopted from the shelter, regardless of size or breed be altered to help control the unwanted animal population.
If you have room for a new family member, or are interested in becoming a foster family, please fill out an online Adoption or Foster applications.
