Long Distance Adoption Policies

We are a rural Animal Shelter, our nearest airport is 2-1/2 hours away. Travel to the airport is provided by a volunteer. Due to this we handle long distance adoptions on a case by case basis. Anyone approved for a long distance adoption must pick up the expenses of the health certificate, travel kennels and gas expenses to the airport. You will be expected to coordinate flight times with our shelter manager and call the airline to make reservations. Long Distance Adoption fees are $100 per pet. All arrangements must be made and paid for in advance.
