All persons interested in adopting an animal must come to the shelter to meet the animal and fill out an adoption application. Out of area adoptions require spay/neuter before animal leaves the Augusta County area. (Any animal going to a home not in Augusta County or a county that borders Augusta County, must be spayed or neutered at one of our local vet offices prior to new owner getting ownership of the animal.) We welcome adopters from outside our area. For potential adopters beyond Augusta County AND ADJACENT COUNTIES, please call the shelter prior to coming to look at our animals. CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY to adopters in this category.
OUR ADOPTION FEES ARE:
DOGS & PUPPIES: $126.00 for females/$116.00 for spayed females. $116.00 for males. If an animal is not already spayed $65.00 of this fee will be credited toward the spay surgery cost, which is the responsibility of the adopter. If an animal is not already neutered $55.00 of this fee will be credited toward the neuter surgery cost, which is the responsibility of the adopter. This fee also includes the cost of a Rabies vaccine.
