Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you have puppies, kittens, or small dogs?
If there are puppies, kittens, or small dogs, they will be adopted quickly, so we advise you to come early.
How can I see the pets who will be available for adoption?
Please remember – things change hourly at each shelter so there are no guarantees that a pet will still be available when you arrive.
What does the “Free Adoption” or “$0 Adoption Fee” include?
The adoption fees that we collect help us provide food, shelter, important medical care and inoculations for the animals. Each adoption fee includes the following for your new pet (retail value is approximately $400):
- Cost of spaying and neutering
- Initial inoculations
- Microchip implant (all animals)
- FeLV/FIV Combo Test (Feline Only)
- Occult Heartworm Test
- Flea and Tick Prevention
- Monthly Parasite Prevention
Are the pets fixed? Vaccinated?
Yes, every pet available for adoption will be fixed and given their vaccinations, including rabies. The only exception to the rabies vaccine is kittens and puppies under 4 months of age.
What should I bring?
Please bring your photo ID.
Can I bring my own pets to meet potential new ones?
Shelters and busy events can be stressful for pets! Ask our staff about the sleepover program.
Where can I see the pets who will be available?
Shelters do not know in advance which pets they can bring because we will be doing adoptions at our facilities until Friday. You can always view our adoptable pets online.
