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 - $150
  • Cats - $90
Adoption fees include all applicable tests, vaccines, sterilization and mandatory microchip. 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 cat for an additional $20 fee. This fee will be waived for seniors (62 yrs +). As per Jackson County Animal Shelter (JCAS) policy, all dogs are required to be micro-chipped and is included in the $150 adoption fee.
