It is the mission of HSAC to reduce pet overpopulation and increase public awareness of the humane treatment of animals. To this end, HSAC will ensure that all animals adopted through this organization will be sterilized and fully vetted prior to adoption, or will be contractually required to be sterilized and fully vetted within a set amount of time following adoption (as in the case of animals too young for certain procedures at the time of adoption). HSAC has also created a clause in every adoption agreement that animals may be returned to HSAC for any reason if the adopter feels they can no longer keep the animal. The fee charged by HSAC to adopt an animal is $150 for all Dogs and Puppies, and $50 for all Cats and Kittens. Sometimes animals may be offered at reduced rates to help them get adopted sooner.
Animals are susceptible to illness especially while in a kennel environment. It is highly recommended you take your newly adopted pet to a vet immediately after adoption for a health checkup. The Humane Society of Adams County,Inc. is NOT responsible for any Animal that becomes sick or dies after adoption. There are no refunds.
