The Application information is requested so that we can assist you in the selection of your new pet. The animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration. The consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the animal’s best interest, and to assist you in finding an animal most compatible with your lifestyle. Our adoption fee includes:  spay/neuter and any medication that may be needed.  We also have a seven day health guarantee.

The animals available for adoption came here from a variety of sources. All animals are examined upon entry and their health is routinely monitored while at our rescue.  There is always a chance that an animal is incubating a disease without showing any clinical signs. After the seven day health guarantee, any adopted animal is the sole responsibility of the adopter.

The adoption fee is $350.  That includes the dog being spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots and microchipped.

Our adoption fee for cats/kittens is $150.  That includes being spayed or neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and feline and aids tested.
