** Due to ongoing challenges that the shelter is facing in a COVID-19 environment, we have had to increase our adoption fees.  Adoption fees help defray the cost of providing housing, care, and food for the animals, as well as all necessary vet medical care, including spay/neuter and microchips.

Regular Adoption Fees*

  • Puppies (all sizes, 6 months and under): $400
  • Small & Toy Adult Dogs (22 lbs and under, 7 months and older): $325
  • Adult Dogs (23 lbs and over, 7 months and older): $300
  • Senior Dogs (7 years and older): $75
  • Special Needs Dogs: $75
  • Dogs at the shelter for 6 months or more: $100
  • Kittens (5 months and under): $150
  • Adult Cats (6 months and older): $100
  • Senior Cats (7 years and older): $50
  • Special Needs Cats: $50

Cat adoptions facilitated at offsite locations are an additional $5.00 to accommodate adoption processing fees.
