Adoption fee includes vetting. Cats & dogs receive first series of vaccinations, spay and neutering, initial worming and necessary medical care while in our foster homes. Dogs are heartworm tested and on heartworm prevention. Cats are tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Please note that due to the rising costs of vet care, our adoption fees are already considerably lower then what we spend on a healthy pet. We have discussed raising the prices on some of our adoption fees, so some of these fees will be higher beginning on February 1, 2013.
On occasion, we may have purebred cats and/or dogs that have been given up by their previous owners. The adoption fee is higher for these animals.
We care for our fostered animals as if they were our own and we want the best for them. Many of the adult animals that come to us have previously been neglected, abused, or abandoned. Our goal is to place all of our pets in permanent good and loving homes.
In the event that the adoption does not work out, for whatever reason, we ask that the animal be returned to us.
We have some requirements that must be met before an adoption is finalized. We reserve the right to refuse adoptions to anyone if any of those requirements are not met.
Dogs & Puppies: Fenced-in backyard
Cats & Kittens: Inside Only and NO Declawing
If adopting an unaltered Guinea Pig or other unaltered small pet, you must sign contract agreeing not to breed it.
