We have a brief adoption application. Our adoption fees vary based on type of animal.
Once your application is approved, our animals are usually able to go home the same day!
Our dogs are generally $150 - $200+tax (everyone is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped! Fees may vary for seniors, special needs)
Our cats/kittens are generally $50 - $105 + tax (fully vetted, spayed or neutered and microchipped).
Stop by and visit us! We're located at 120 West 2nd Street South (by the Brookings Airport!)
We're open Monday - Friday 12 noon to 6pm
Saturdays 11am - 4pm
We are a small foster home based group but we do have a shelter building to house our cats, small animals, and our new arrivals. We do have our dogs on site if they do not have a foster home- dogs in foster come in on Saturdays 11-4 or by appointment.
