What does the adoption fee pay for?

The adoption fee is designed to offset some of the expenses we incur in caring for each animal. Here is a list of the services provided for all dogs and cats.


The cost of vet care combined with the cost of housing, feeding, and caring for each animal for its entire stay is $150.00 on average. We keep our adoption donation low to encourage more adoptions.
