If you have recently (or not so recently) adopted a pet from us, please send us a quick email and maybe a picture or two. We LOVE to hear updates on the pets that have been adopted from us!
It is our policy that all pets at our shelter must be spayed/neutered prior to being adopted. If you are coming to see a pet that hasn’t been spayed/neutered yet, please know that you will not be able to take them home with you that day. All potential adopters must fill out a pre-screening adoption form. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption for reasons that would be in the best interest of the pet.
We are working with local vets to provide low spaying/neutering costs so that we can offer lower adoption fees. Presently, adoption fees are $125 for dogs and $60 for cats (these fees include the spay/neuter costs, vaccinations (bordetella, distemper/parvo, and de-wormer); heart worm testing for dogs and FIV/FELV testing for cats, and HomeAgain chipping for dogs).

Getting a pet shouldn't be a spur-of-the-moment decision. There are some things that you need to take into consideration before getting a pet, especially if you adopt on from a shelter.
One thing you need to ask yourself is, "Do I have room for a pet in my life?" You need to think about how much time and energy you have to dedicate to a pet. Remember, a pet is completely reliant on you for all of their needs. Some shelter animals have had trauma in their life and may have some difficulty adjusting. You need to be sure that you are willing to put the time in to work with your pet as they settle into their new home. Some pets have a harder time adjusting and may need a lot of patience and love. Pets are not "throw away". You need to be sure you can put in the effort and love needed to make your pet comfortable and stable in their new environment.
Another thing you need to ask yourself is, "Do I have the money to properly take care of pet?" Owning a pet can be expensive and you need to be sure that you can care for your pet for their entire life. For a breakdown of what a pet may cost over their lifetime, check out The Simple Dollar's, Pet Ownership Costs Guide for 2017.
Owning a pet is a rewarding experience, but should not be taken lightly. Be sure you are mentally, emotionally, and financially ready to bring a pet into your life. Pets are meant to be forever.
