Our goal is to place as many adoptable pets in new homes as possible. Then why charge? Why not just give them away? Historically, facts have shown us that when a person pays an adoption fee for a pet they are more likely to keep the pet. It places a value on the pet and lets us know the adopter is making an investment into the pets future. It also allows us to provide a Spay or Neuter program for adopted pets. The small amount of the adoption that the shelter does keep aids in covering the cost of care for the animals in shelter care. It's a win, win deal....
