Animal Adoption Center
Opening its doors on March 7, 2005, the Animal Adoption Center has already provided shelter for numerous animals that are lost, abandoned, released, or injured. The Adoption Center also serves as a safe haven for stray animals picked up by Animal Control or citizens until their owners are able to reclaim them. The Animal Adoption Center strives to provide safe and loving homes for all animals and assists in educating new owners about the care and responsibilities involved in pet ownership.
ServicesAll dogs and cats adopted from the center:
- Are spayed or neutered
- Receive a one year rabies vaccination
- Tested for Feline Leukemia / FIV or heartworms depending on their species
Small Companion Animals
The center also receives other small companion animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and gerbils. These small companion animals require specialized care dependent on their species and also often need to be seen by a veterinarian from time to time. Most of these other animals are adopted for an adoption fee of $5. To view the companion animals awaiting adoption, please visit Petfinder.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats are indicated below. Remember that each animal is being spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies, and tested for two common diseases in pets which could cost around $350 at a veterinarian. Animals can be microchipped upon request when they are adopted.
