We do not require an adoption fee, but a donation is greatly appreciated and goes directly towards providing veterinary care for the animals. All animals must be spayed/neutered if they have not been done prior to adoption, and this can be done for $20 under the state program at a participating veterinarian. We do our best to match the right animal with the right home, and we reserve the right to refuse any adoption if we do not feel the animal will work out in your home. If you are interested in a dog, please fill out an application online before calling or visiting the shelter- this will help us to learn more about you and determine whether or not the dog you are interested in is right for your household. Please note that all adopted cats or kittens must leave the premises in a cat carrier. We may choose to decline an adoption if the cat or kitten cannot be safely transported to the new home.
Since we are a municipal facility, we cannot afford to provide veterinary care for every animal. Adopters should take the animal to the vet within 7 days for a check-up. The pound makes no guarantees about the health of the animal you are adopting and cannot be held responsible for any vet bill incurred once an animal is adopted. Any animals adopted from the pound may be returned to us if there is a problem.
