How to adopt

The adoption process is not difficult; it is aimed at assuring that you and your cat or dog are good matches and will have a long and happy future together.
A questionnaire gathers information about you, your family, and any other pets you may have. Then, one of our adoption counselors will discuss your compatibility with the cat or dog you have selected.

Our standard adoption fees are as follows and help cover a portion of the cost of the services included in our adoption packages:


Spayed/Neutered

$70.00 Cat/Kitten
