Shelter Care Insurance is a program that is provided by PET POINT. Every animal that is adopted from our shelter that is over the age of 8wks has the opportunity to receive a free 30 day insurance policy for their pet. This is a fantastic program and has helped many pets.
We are proud to be sponsored by Hills Science Diet pet foods. Hills provides the shelter with food for its homeless pets.
We now offer micro chips at a cost of $25 for Cabot residents. We also chip every animal that is adopted out of the shelter.
We now offer the use of bark collars to help with those neighborly disputes over barking dogs. They are available to use for a $100 deposit that is refunded upon return of collar.
The current shelter was established in July of 2006 through a great effort on the part of many people. It was designed with the idea to house dogs and cats of various ages and to still have space to carry out the daily activities of shelter life. We have a separate space to do our laundry, to prepare food for the animals and even a space for the ones who are sick to get well.
The shelter is staffed M-F from 8am-5 pm and the last Saturday of the month from 9am-3pm. Adoption hours are M-F 10am-5pm and the last Saturday of every month from 11am-3pm. We currently have four employees to oversee the daily operations and answer calls when needed. We take great pride in the appearance of our facility and strive to have great customer service. If you need assistance while visiting or see something that needs attention feel free to let one of our staff know. I encourage each and everyone to come down and visit a homeless pet. All of our animals are cared for as if they belonged to us and we would like to find a home for all that is possible. We have a very nice facility and have plans to expand in the near future. We hope to continue to have the support of the community in all that we do!
We encourage every person wanting to adopt to come to the shelter and spend some time with the pet you are interested in. After taking time to make an informed decision, we then fill out paperwork and set a date for your new pet's sterilization surgery. The animal is required to be held at the shelter until the specified date to be sterilized, microchipped, and receive a current rabies vaccination. You will be able to take your pet home on the afternoon of the surgery. We currently have no adoption fee but we do charge a VETTING FEE. The fees are $80 per feline and $100 per canine. This "VETTING FEE" includes the spay/neuter, microchipping, Rabies vaccination, City tags, and a surgery filing fee. State law requires that every animal adopted from a city shelter be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter.
**Where are you located and what are your hours?**

**What kind of animals do you have for adoption?**
We mainly have dogs and cats for adoption. Every once in a while we will pick up a different type of domestic pet and if it is not claimed it will be placed for adoption. All of the pets that are available for adoption can be seen by clicking on the "Our Adoptable Pet List" link above.
**Does my pet need a city license?**
Yes! Every dog and cat over the age of 6 months must have a city license. A city license can be purchased at the animal shelter at a cost of $5 for altered animals and $15 for un-altered animals. In order to purchase a license your pet must have a CURRENT rabies vaccination. There is the option to purchase your license on the city website at www.cabotar.gov

**What is the maximum number of animals allowed per household?**
Under the current law you are only allowed to own 4 animals in the city limits.
**Are Pit Bulls banned in the City of Cabot?**
Yes! Any pet that is of a bull breed is banned in Cabot. Even if it is a mixed breed and has the characteristics of a bull breed it is not allowed in the city.
**Is your facility a NO-KILL shelter?**
Unfortunately no. Due to the volume of animals that we see every year and a large number of those being stray and at a health disadvantage sometimes we do have to humanely euthanize.
