Adoption Policy

We want to make it easy and fun to bring home a new best friend! When you choose an animal you’d like to make part of your family, one of our friendly adoption counselors will spend time reviewing your application with you to ensure the pet you’ve chosen will be a great fit with your home and lifestyle. Your counselor will advise you on training, introductions with to other pets and family members, and can answer any other questions you might have. A home visit may be required for particular animals to make sure their special needs are met.

Interested in adopting? Then come on by and meet your new forever friend. You can complete the Adoption Questionnaire online, download and email it back, or just fill it out when you get here.

Your new pet’s adoption fee will be based on age and species. Unlike many adoption centers, FHS does not require increased adoption fees for purebred or ‘designer breed’ dogs or cats. Our adoption fees are also much less than those at other shelters, even though they are fully vetted, trained and ready to go home.

Our adoptions fees are as follows:

Dogs age 6 months and older are $80
Puppies under 6 months are $150
Cats age 6 months and older are $25
Kittens under 6 months are $50 (second one FREE)

We often hold special promotions when these fees are lowered, waived or adopters ‘name their own fee’ for adoptions. Your adoption fee covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery, testing, vaccinations, and microchipping. Your new pet has received all the love, attention, medications, and veterinary care they need to join their new family!
