At the time of adoption, all of our dogs and puppies are spayed or neutered, have a nationally registered micro-chip, are current on all shots (including rabies), have been de-wormed, and heartworm tested upon request. They have also been bathed, had their ears cleaned and flea treatments, as needed. The dogs are in great health when they go to a new home! Our adoption fee is $125.00, which covers all of the above procedures/treatments, or you can pay a $40 dollar fee for the dog and take it to the vet of your choice and provide proof of the spay or neuter within 7 days to the Animal Control Department. We also spend time evaluating our dog's temperaments to find out if they are dog, cat, or child friendly!
We currently hold events at Petsmart in Council Bluffs on the first and third Sundays of each month!
**If you find a dog you are really interested in we suggest you call the shelter at 712-366-0152 and request an application to be faxed to you. As soon as we get the application faxed back, we will then hold the dog for you for 48 hours, assuming we haven't already received an application on that dog. This is the only way we will hold a dog for you. We will take multiple adoption applications on the same dog and those are held in the order they come in. We operate on a first come/first serve basis.**
