Adoption Fees

Visiting the shelter is the best way to find the right pet to match your family's lifestyle.  Different animal breeds have different personalities and our Adoption Counselors can help you decide which animal is best for you. Spending time with an animal will give you a sense of the right match. Adoption Counselors are prepared to help you by discussing your lifestyle, family members, time for pets, etc.

Sometimes you may notice our puppies and kittens have different colors marked on the inside of their ears, this is for identification when we have kittens and puppies that look alike in litters. We want to make sure the right puppy and kitten go to the right homes. The color is non-toxic marker and will wash off or wear off in time.

Adoption is a lifelong committment, so before you adopt, please consider the following questions:

  *Can I afford the annual costs to a pet, which can easily run up to $400 a year, including food and medical care?
  *Am I willing to devote time to training my new pet?
  *Do I have time everyday to train, groom, exercise, and love a pet?
  *What type of pet will best fit into my lifestyle?
  *Will my landlord allow a pet?
  *What type of pet is most appropriate for children?
