Adopting A Friend

Cat adoptions are $40 per cat and include spay/neuter surgery and all vaccinations.

Dog adoption fees range from $100 - $150 and include spay/neuter surgery, all vaccinations, and a microchip.

We have a foster-to-adopt program: pay 50% of the fee up front and foster your new pet. At the end of the 2 weeks, pay the balance of the adoption fee.

We offer discounts for adopting multiple pets.

If you are 60 years old or older, you may be eligible for our Pets for Seniors program - 50% off adoption fees. Ask us!
