All animals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, once they become available for adoption. We do offer holds for adoptable animals, once they are available, for $35 for 24 hours, and $50 for an additional day. The hold fee is non-refundable and does not go towards the adoption fee.
Our companion animal adoption fees vary and are dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition and public demand. We waive or reduce the adoption fee for many animals in our shelter thanks to generous supporters who sponsor the animal’s adoption fee. Other animals – those we call Shelter Heroes – often carry a high adoption fee, which helps offset the costs of care and treatment of those animals who have a more difficult time finding the right family.
Companions for Veterans: in honor of those who have served or are serving our country in the armed forces, we offer 50 percent off the adoption fee of all animals. Offer does not include Shelter Heroes.
Baby Boomer Buddies: Adoption fees are 50 percent off for adopters over the age of 65. Offer does not include Shelter Heroes.
