Adoption Policy

Adopt a "best friend" for life! Please remember that dogs and cats of all ages need and deserve happiness, love, and a home. In return, they will love you unconditionally for all of your years together.

We adopt to New England Residents only and require current/past veterinarian references. An application is REQUIRED to adopt an animal. Vet references will be checked, as well as references for those who rent. Adoption of an animal will be based on APPROVED applications only. Personal checks are not accepted. Payment must be made in cash, money order or bank check.

Dogs are $185.00 (puppies up to 6 months are $300.00) and cats are $95.00 (kittens up to 6 months are $185.00). This price includes the spay/neuter, rabies shot, and other required vaccinations. For those cats who come into the shelter already spayed/neutered, the adoption fee is $45.00.

There is occasionally a special reduced adoption fee for senior dogs/cats. Please speak to the Animal Control Officer, Manny, on the adoption fee, when considering adopting a senior pet.

Please note: For those dogs who test Positive for Heartworm and/or Lyme, please speak to the Animal Control Officer, Manny, who will review everything - including treatment - with you.
