Adopting a friend
All animals are spayed and neutered, vaccinated against distemper and rabies, FeLV tested, flea treatment and wormed prior to adoption. The adoption fee is $100.00 for a cat 6 months and older, $125.00 for a kitten 6 months and under, $75.00 for a special needs kitty and $5.00 for our senior for a senior program. We are also always looking for barns that will take in fixed and vaccinated feral cats for relocation.
DOGS: We require an adoption application and adoption contract to adopt any of our lovely dogs.
All prospective adopters must have a pre-placement home visit, so we can observe the dog and family together in the family's environment. We check veterinarian, landlord and personal references. We also require adopters to return to us, so our shelter vet can do the follow-up vet visit/booster shots (no charge for office visit; nominal donation appreciated to cover cost of vaccines). All animals are spayed and neutered, vaccinated against DHPP and rabies, wormed, HW tested, and given 1 month of flea treatment/1 month of heartworm preventative prior to adoption. The adoption fee is between $300.00-$350.00 depending on the dog.
