Adopting A Friend

Adopting your next best friend through the Barchard Shelter is easy!  Just visit us at one of our mobile adoption events and leave with your new pet.  There is no home visit or waiting period. If you prefer, you may make an appointment and come to the shelter to select your pet.  Just call us at 903.496.2412 or email us at commercepets@yahoo.com for an appointment.

All dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, on monthly heartworm prevention, micro-chipped, and come with 30 days of free health insurance.  Our current adoption fee for dogs is $125.00.  Senior dogs have a reduced fee of $100.00.  All dogs will be provided with a collar and leash.

All cats are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccination, negative for feline leukemia, micro-chipped, and come with 30 days of free health insurance.  Our current adoption fee for cats is $50.00.  Please bring a carrier for the trip home with your new cat or kitten.  Please note that cats are not included in all of our mobile adoption events.  We do have cats at the Petco store in Allen, TX that are available for adoption throughout the week, and we bring additional cats to the mobile adoption events at the store.
