Why Adopt

Adopt, Don't Shop!

Are you in the market to find a new companion for your family?! You have come to the right place! Adopting a pet from a shelter does not just save one life, it saves two. When you adopt a pet, you make room for another to be saved. We have both dogs and cats available for adoption and waiting for their new heroes to step up and take them home. Here is everything you need to know about our adoption process.

Once you have found an animal that you are interested in calling your own, we require a meet and greet with all the family members in the house including any animals you currently have. If your meet and greet goes well, it is as simple as filling out an adoption contract with staff and paying your adoption fee. Per state law, our animals can not leave our facility until they are altered. If they are not already spayed/neutered, you will be able to pick up and take home after their surgery. The following information is the Adoption fee and explanation.

All Pet adoption fees are $60
(applies to all breeds and ages)

Your adoption includes the following:

  • Exam
  • First round of Feline/Canine Vaccine’s (2 for adults and 3 for under 1yr)
  • FIP-FIV/Heartworm Test
  • Deworming
  • Rabies vaccine & certificate (4 months and older)
  • First round of Flea preventative
  • Spay/Neuter
  • Microchip (registered) - We register every microchip we provide so the owner does not have to.

After you adopt your new companion, it is important that you register your microchip. In the event that your pet gets out and is found, a registered microchip ensures that your pet will be returned to you.

Additionally, you should take your new pet to your vet soon after your adoption. This allows your vet to meet your pet, receive all medical records, and set up your next annual appointment. 

Stop by the shelter and take a look at all of our available animals!
We are located at 8001 Shin Oak Drive, between the Fire Department and Public Works Building.

Monday - Friday 9:00a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

If the animal you are interested in is currently in a foster home, we will get you in touch with the foster family for a meet and greet.

We want you to find the perfect fit for your family! We recommend spending at least 30 minutes with the animal you are interested in, and bringing all members of your family that will be living in the home with your pet.
