All animals have different adoption dates.

If you are interested in a dog and already own a dog(s) and/or have children, we may set up a meet-and-greet to see how they interact. We reserve the right to make sure each animal has a suitable home for its individual needs.

 

Adoption Fees


  • Dogs - $120
  • Cats - $90
Adoption fees include all applicable tests, vaccines and sterilization. If you are adopting a dog, you are also responsible for the applicable dog license fee.

Anyone adopting a cat may select a second cat that is already sterilized for $1, if available. If either cat is returned, the $1 is refunded first.

Micro-Chipping Fees


You may choose to microchip your animal for an additional $20 fee. This fee will be waived for seniors (62 yrs +). As per Jackson County Animal Shelter (JCAS) policy, all Pit Bull mixes are required to be micro-chipped. A $20 fee will apply.
