The adopter will receive an incentive allowance to help cover the cost of having the animal spayed/neutered. All animals will receive a free veterinary examination voucher. This voucher is good for two weeks, and will waive the office call fee at participating veterinary offices. Animals being adopted will have received their first booster vaccines (including rabies, if of appropriate age), and treated for Round and Hooks Worms. Dogs will also have their Bordetella intranasal/injectable vaccine. Animals 10 weeks or older have been microchipped.

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.

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

  • Boarding (No Vaccines): $20 first two (2) days ($10 each additional day)
  • Boarding (Vaccines): $30 first three (3) days ($10 each additional day)
  • Boarding (Vaccines and Spayed/Neutered): $60 after three (3) days. Microchip; with owner's permission.
Animal must be claimed within four (4) to seven (7) days of arrival. Regular adoption fee(s) apply to any animal returned to owner after this period.

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