We do not have an online application but we do have certain requirements for
adoption! We do not adopt to students; you must own your own home; you must be
able to care properly for the animal you want to adopt including vet care. We have the right
to do a follow up visit after the adoption to make sure everything is going well and there
are no problems.
Our adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccines, Flea control, worming and spay/neuter.
We also have a Senior for Senior program available to senior citizens only. If interested in one of our pets please ask about this wonderful program.
If there are any pets you would like to meet at our adoption meets, please call to give us at least 24 hours notice to get the pet from its foster home to meet you
A common question among dog adopters is why are adoption fees so high? Shouldn’t adopting a dog be free, or at least super cheap?
Spay & Neuter:
The average cost for veterinary care varies greatly depending on your geographical location (city vs. country), the size of the dog requiring care, as well as their overall picture of health and how it influences the complexity of treatments. That said, the average dog spay or neuter can range from $45-$175 for an animal shelter. If you were to get your adopted dog spayed or neutered on your own it could cost you anywhere from $200-$500 plus depending on said variables.
The cost of intake vaccinations for dogs to prevent Distemper, Parvo, Kennel Cough as well as rabies can cost approximately $40 for the animal shelter, if not more. If your adopted dog has been in the shelter for a few months they’ve most likely received a monthly booster to keep them safe from shelter related illness. If you were to pay for these vaccinations yourself you could be paying anywhere from $20-$150 dollars.
Parasite Treatments and Preventatives
Monthly flea tick and ear mite treatments as well as heartworm preventives for dogs are another monthly cost for animal shelters. De-wormer medications are often given preventatively as oppose to waiting to see evidence of worms. These treatments can cost approximately $10-$30 assuming that no labs are need. Lyme disease and heartworm tests are also another cost the shelter will incur to ensure that your dog is in good health. If a dog tests positive, Lyme disease treatment can cost anywhere from $20-$100 depending on the size of the dog. However, if a dog needs to be treated for heartworms the treatment can be extremely costly, and on average it’s at least $1000 if you were to pay for it yourself.
Food, Shelter & Comfort
The cost to feed a dog for a month in an animal shelter can range greatly based on the resources of the shelter, but a general ballpark estimate is round $40-$60. This does not include special diets for dogs that need weight loss food or dog food for specific digestive needs. Then there are toys, treats, bedding, and other necessities that the shelter provides.
