  • Adoption Info

    To adopt a dog or cat, an application form must be filled out. A legal contract must be signed by the adopter stating the conditions of the adoption. If the dog or cat can no longer be kept by the adopter, it must be returned to us. Our dogs and cats are family pets and we expect to see them treated as family members. We do not adopt them out to be outside pets. The whole family must agree to the adoption and we do not ship animals. 

    Adoption fees

    Dog fees $200.00 to $500.00. 
    Cats are $120.00 to $350.00. 

    This includes spay/neuter, shots, microchipped, worming, heartworm tests and preventative (for the dogs), and cats are felv/fiv tested.

    We accept cash only, so please be prepared when adopting from us!

  • Application Process

    When you fill out an online application and you have a certain animal in mind, you can enter the name on the application. If you are not sure of a specific animal, you do not need to put a name on the application, and this will be considered a general application for adoption.

    We check for applications daily and will get back to you as soon as we can. Some animals receive many applications, and we will start with the first one we receive. If we call you on the number you have included on the application and you don't answer, we will move on to the next applicant. So be aware that you might receive a call from us and please answer.
