Adoption Process

Our adoption process is very simple and our fee is $90 for most pets. All animals will be spayed or neutered and will have had vaccinations. Once you take your new best furever friend home, you will need to take them to your personal vet for a wellness check and to start yearly routine visits. Always remember to have an ID tag on your pet, it could be their ticket home. Some animals are priced above or below the $90. Please check out our Facebook page for special prices! At any given time our shelter may have up to 100 dogs and 50 cats at our facility. Some of these animals are shy and get left behind. So, if you can find a place in your heart and home to open up to our wonderful animals, please come ito our shelter today and ADOPT your next Best Furever Friend with us!

Please call us today to find out more about these animals who have so much love to give!
