Adoption Fees & Procedures
The adoption fee is $57 for either a cat or a dog. The adoption fee includes the first set of shots for the animal, except rabies, and the cost of spay/neuter.
The adopter must have their adopted pet spayed or neutered within 30 days after adoption.
Adopters must come to the shelter to adopt an animal. At this time, we are unable to ship or transport animals to adopters.
