Our Adoption Process

Bring joy to your life by sharing it with a pet! When you adopt a shelter animal, you save two lives– the life of the cat or dog you adopt, and the life of the one who takes its place.

Are You Ready to Adopt a Cat or Dog?

Caring for a companion animal goes far beyond providing food, water and shelter. It also takes planning for expected and unexpected medical expenses. The average first year cost of owning a cat or dog is over $1,000 and $500 each year after. When adopting, you are making a commitment to care for an animal for the rest of its life—that could mean 10 to 15 years for dogs and up to 20 years for cats. Before adopting, consider the ways your life and circumstances could change such as moves, the birth of children, and new jobs. Are you prepared for your pet to remain a permanent part of your life?
