WE ACCEPT CASH ONLY

WHO WE ARE

 Our mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance the health, safety, and comfort of the citizens of Jefferson County, by humanely removing injured, abandoned, or at-large animals.

We strongly advocate responsible pet ownership.

ADOPTING A FRIEND

BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE ADOPTION PROCESS, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CAREFULLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:


1) You will be required to complete a visitor registration form stating your interest in adopting an animal.

2) You will be escorted to the adoption area by a BJC staff member.

3) If you find an animal you wish to adopt, you will be required to complete an Adoption Application form. You will then be interviewed by a BJC staff member and a decision will be made to accept or reject your application.

4) If your application is accepted, the pet you selected will be scheduled for spay/neuter at the earliest possible time. On your assigned pickup date, you will be required to sign an Adoption Contract with BJC and pay an ninety dollar( $90.00 ) adoption fee. You will receive a record of health, which includes vaccination history, medical evaluation, heartworm test results (on adult dogs over 6 months), and a rabies vaccination tag and certificate.

5) You will then be required to take the animal to a licensed veterinarian of your choice within three working days of signing the contract to have the animal thoroughly examined.


POINTS OF EMPHASIS


a) If the veterinarian determines that the animal's health does not make it suitable for adoption, you may return the animal to BJC for exchange or for a refund of the adoption fee. You must provide documentation from the attending veterinarian as to why the animal is not suitable for adoption.

c) BJC is not responsible for any veterinary costs which you incur as a part of this adoption process.
