Thinking of adopting from our Shelter? If you do adopt a dog or a cat from us, you’ll have a best friend for life! We invite you to visit our Shelter during office hours, so you can meet our adorable animals and you may just fall in love!
Adoption fees help cover the medical care of the animal while he or she waits for a new home, as well as food and transportation costs. These fees help to provide care for the other animals in the shelter or rescue group who may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee. The money also acts as a donation to help support the organization as a whole, allowing the group to continue its efforts to rescue and rehome pets.
Our Adoption Fees:
Local Dogs: $500
Out of State Dogs: $600
Cats Under 1 Year Old: $290
Cats 1 Year and Over: $240
Our adoptable animals are Spayed/Neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, and microchipped before you take them home.
Must be 21 to adopt.

Adopting a Dog:
How do you even begin to decide what kind of dog or puppy to adopt? While shelter dogs come from various backgrounds and experiences, they all share one important fact: they are dogs, and the dog you choose needs to be understood and treated as such. Just like us, dogs need order and leadership. They seek structure, structure which you must provide. Your dog needs to know that you that you have a set of house rules. This makes the transition from the shelter to your home easier, faster and more rewarding. Here is a great guide to all dog breeds so you can make the right choice for you and for your family.
Adopting a Cat:
Cat or kitten? Kittens are absolutely adorable. Adult cats are often calmer and more laid back. So how do you decide which is better for you, your family, and your lifestyle? There should be no rush when you are looking for chemistry with your future pet. Take your time in picking a pet to adopt, so that you’ll be willing to work through the inevitable bumps as the pet gets adjusted to you and your home (and vice versa!) and you’ll be happy with each other for the rest of the pet’s life. Here are some questions you can ask yourself, your family or housemates to help you decide.
Your cat or dog, kitten or puppy will come with a Shelter name, but is that the right name for you and your household? As you get to know your adorable new friend, you’ll see personality traits that might make it easier to come up with the right name. And if not, here’s some help!
