Adopting A Friend

We provide TLC for stray and surrendered cats and dogs. Incoming animals are made available for adoption based on temperament and health. Our adoption fee is $80.00. This includes treatment for internal parasites (as needed) for all animals. For dogs/puppies: one or more sets of DHLPP, and the Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccine, for cats/kittens: one or more sets of the FVRCP Vaccine.  The adoption fee also includes a $51 voucher redeemable at most local veterinarian offices to help with the cost of spaying/neutering the animal you adopt. You also take the pet of your choice home the same day you choose him or her!!! Payments may be made ONLY with CASH!!
