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. *As of May 13, 2020 - cash no longer accepted.( We also do not accept debit/credit cards.) Payment must be check or money order with proper ID.*

Dogs are $275.00 (puppies up to 6 months are $370.00) and cats are $145.00 (kittens up to 6 months are $185.00). This price includes the spay/neuter, rabies shot, and other required vaccinations.

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.
