Adoptions provide joy for a family and a loving home for a stray or abused animal or an animal from an unwanted litter. We carefully screen each adoptive famly to ensure the best home situation exists for each animal. Spaying/neutering is not an option, but rather a requirement for all companion animals we release. The adoption fees are: $125 for puppies (up to 6mos old), $90 for dogs (7mos and older), $75 for kittens (up to 6mos old), $50 for cats (7mos to 5yrs old), and $25 for cats (6yrs and older). Talbot County license (if applicable) is an additional $5.

FOR DOGS: Initial DHLPP and Bordatella vaccines, heartworm testing on dogs over 6 months of age, spaying/neutering, and micro-chipping for pet identification. All dogs are vaccinated and dewormed before being placed in the adoption program. Additionally, dogs over 12 weeks of age receive monthly heartworm preventative while staying in the shelter.

FOR CATS: Initial FVCRP vaccine, feline leukemia testing on kittens, feline leukemia testing and FIV testing on adult cats, spaying/neutering, and micro-chipping for pet identification. All cats are vaccinated and dewormed before being placed in the adoption program. Included in this fee are rabies vaccination, distemper vaccination, feline AIDS & Leukemia testing, worming medicine, spay/neuter surgery, and micro-chipping for pet identification.
