Ready-to-go Adoptions

Animals which have completed their "Stray Hold" time and have been spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated are considered "ready-to-go". Any animal in a "ready-to-go" status can go home with you today. All "ready-to-go" adoptions are $20, unless otherwise noted.

Pre-Adoptions

Animals that are beyond their hold period that are still waiting to be provided with veterinary services are available for early adoption, but cannot be released to the adopter until the necessary vaccinations and procedures have been administered. We can’t hold or reserve any animal outside of the early adoption process. Any animal in a "ready-to-go" status can go home with you today  for $20, **unless otherwise noted. Pre-adoption prices do not include the $20 rabies license fee.
