Adoption Fees:

           Effective Immediately: All adoption fees have increased to $25.00 for all animals adopted from our shelter.

We only except CHECKS or MONEY ORDERS for shelter fees. Cash is accepted for donation.

Animals at our shelter that are under 4 months of age CAN NOT be adopted to families over one and a half hours away. Those animals will be required to be brought back at the age of 6 months to be altered at OUR VET and this is becoming to be a problem. The rest of our animals CAN NOT be adopted out over 2 hours away. We do home visits and it is not possible for us to travel that far. Thank you...
