How to Adopt

Darsey with her happy family!

We find homes for healthy adult and juvenile dogs and cats over eight (8) weeks of age who have exhibited no dangerous or vicious tendencies. We place animals with adults of legal age (21 years of age) who are living permanently in the community.  All pets are spayed or neutered before adoption, or immediately upon adoption.

Dogs over six (6) months of age have been placed on heartworm preventative. Puppies and adult dogs have started their vaccinations and have been wormed. Kittens and cats have begun their vaccinations and have been wormed.

The adoption donation fee is $75 for a cat or kitten and $100 for a dog or puppy. An additional fee for special veterinary expenses, usually heartworm treatment, may apply. All pets are altered prior to or at the time of adoption. Adopters sign a legal contract agreeing to provide proper care of their new pet and to abide by animal control laws.

Our requirements:

  1. All adopters will be asked to fill out an adoption application.
  2. Adopters must be at least 21 years old.
  3. Renters must show proof that pets are allowed, please bring a copy of your rental agreement. If there is a pet deposit, please show us your receipt that this has been paid.
  4. Be prepared to take your pet home with you – bring a leash for all dogs, regardless of age or size (or a pet taxi for small puppies and dogs) and a pet taxi for all kittens and cats.

Please call us for additional information during our normal adoption hours at (478) 454-1273.
