Adoption Fees

Dogs

All dogs at minimum are spayed or neutered, vaccinated against Distemper/Parvovirus and Bordatella (kennel cough), heartworm tested and/or started on heartworm preventative depending on age, microchipped, treated for fleas/ticks, dewormed, and include 30 days of free pet health insurance (when an email address is provided at the time of adoption). To help start things off as best we can, we require every member of the family, including canine members and anyone else who is regularly at the house, to meet the dog before we send it on its way. Hey, what can we say? We love them all too!

Adult Dog (6 months and older) $200
Dog Buddies (2 adult dogs or a bonded pair) $350
Dog Buddies (1 adult dog and 1 puppy) $400
Adoption Guarantee Fund Adult Dog* $250 and up
Puppy (under 6 months) $300
Adoption Guarantee Fund Puppy* $350-500
   

*Adoption Guarantee Fund dogs are highly-adoptable and therefore have a higher adoption fee. The extra fee enables us to continue our efforts to find homes for every one of our healthy, adoptable animals. Check individual dog listings for adoption fee.

Cats

Not every member of the family needs to meet a cat before going home. We strongly encourage young children to meet cats ahead of time, and we require that if you still live at home with your parents, you bring mom or dad in for a meet and greet too. Of course, it just makes sense to check with other family members, roommates, and your landlord before adding to the household. (There’s nothing like a surprise bark or meow when you’re not expecting it.)

Adult Cat (6 months to 7 years) $65
Cat Buddies (2 adult cats or a bonded pair) $105
Cat Buddies (1 adult cat and one kitten) $145
Senior Cat (7+ years) $35
Kitten (up to 6 months) $115
Two Kittens $190

 

Other animals (birds, small mammals, reptiles)

Occasionally a feathered, scaled, or fuzzy friend makes its way to us, too. Check here for updates on new shelter guests.
