Adoption Fees:  Please note that these fees do not cover all of our costs. If a kitten is not spayed or neutered, we ask for a $50 deposit as well as the adoption fee of $80 (two kittens, $130). When you have the kitten(s) spayed or neutered and bring in the paperwork, we will refund your $50.
For one cat we ask $110 and for two cats we ask $180 (which includes shots for rabies and distemper, spaying or neutering, and testing for FIV and FeLV). For dogs we ask $280, which includes shots for rabies and distemper, spaying or neutering, and a seasonal heartworm test.

Please note:  We ask all adopters to show a current driver’s license for identification purposes. If you own a home, we ask to see a copy of a tax bill confirming ownership. If you rent, we must have written permission from your landlord that animals are allowed on the premises. We are performing due diligence for the welfare of our animals and hope this won’t make the adoption process too onerous.

We'll be in touch. Thanks!
