We have a low adoption fee of a $1 cash payment, as your expenses will primarily be associated with vaccination, microchip and spay/neuter requirements.
Pick the veterinarian of your choice, and prepay for rabies vaccination, microchipping and spaying/neutering services.
Bring the invoice in, along with the $1 adoption fee payment.
Dogs/Cats under 6 months: You'll have to sign an agreement to sterilize the animal, but you will be able to take your new friend home the same day.
Dogs/Cats 6 months and older: Animal Services will hold the animal until its veterinarian appointment. You can pick the animal up at the vet's office after the appointment is finished.
More information at our Adoptions/Reclaims page.
If your pet ends up at Animal Services, you are subject to a reclaim fee.
Come to the shelter and show some type of proof the animal is yours (pictures, veterinarian receipts). Pick the veterinarian of your choice, and prepay for rabies vaccination, microchipping and spaying/neutering services (or provide proof these services have been provided).
Pay the $40 reclaim fee.
Animal Services will hold the pet until the appointment. Once the appointment is complete, you can take your pet home from the veterinarian's office. Note: If vaccination, microchipping and spaying/neutering* has already taken place, you may take your pet home from Animal Services.
Every additional reclaim will increase the fee by $20; i.e. $60 for a second reclaim, $80 for a third, etc.
* - Spaying/neutering requirement waived if the pet is registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) or United Kennel Club (UKC).
See more information at our Adoption/Reclaim page.
Animals available for adoption may be viewed in the kennel area each day beginning at 10 a.m. until the shelter closes for the day. The shelter is located at 705 E. McGaffey.
