The pets at our shelter are both strays and owner turn-ins. Strays must be kept a minimum of 3 days before they are available for adoption. Our pets are adopted to approved homes only. Adoption fee is $45 for dogs and $35 cats. Any pet adopted must be spayed/neutered at the adopter's expense. Proof of sterilization and rabies vaccination must be provided to the shelter in writing within 30 days of adoption.
