Adoptions

Matchmaker Program

It is our policy to make certain that each person who adopts a dog is aware of the responsibilities of pet guardianship, and is capable of and willing to accept those responsibilities morally, physically, and financially. Not every person who desires to adopt should do so.

Questionnaire

By completing our Matchmaker Form questionnaire, you will aid us in determining if you and your family are indeed ready for pet guardianship, and if the dog of your interest would suit you and your lifestyle. Should you agree that adopting a pet is a commitment throughout the lifetime of your companion animal, please download our Matchmaker Form (PDF).

Adopt an Animal

All dogs adopted (with adoption fee) receive Distempter, Bordatella and Canine Influenza vaccines, are spayed / neutered, licensed, given a rabies vaccination and are microchipped before leaving the Shelter. If the animal is too young to be spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, a Bond will be issued to the adopter to return at a later date for their pet's spay or neuter. The Bond fee is $50 for dogs which is included in the price at time of adoption. All cats adopted (with adoption fee) receive a 3-in-1 vaccination  are spayed / neutered, given a rabies vaccination and are microchipped before leaving the Shelter.  If the animal is too young to be spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, a Bond will be issued to the adopter to return at a later date for their pet's spay or neuter. The Bond fee is $40 for cats which is included in the price at time of adoption.
