All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, and if old enough heartworm test for the canines, and FIV/Felv for the felines. If animal is old enough they will also have a rabies vaccine. Adopter will receive a Free Exam within two weeks of adoption at local vet hospitals-we encourage all adopters to take advantage of this form.

We do offer a twenty-four (24) hour hold on the animals but there is a $10 hold fee per animal. This is not refundable but will apply towards adoption fee upon the animal's adoption.

RETURN TO OWNER(S):

These fees will vary depending on what service(s) have been provided to the animal:

The shelter does not accept personal checks for adoptions of animals. The shelter will accept cash or credit cards only.
