$85 for dogs/puppies and $65 for cats/kittens As of July 1, 2016
Adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter for adopted pets, and they make it possible for us to continue our efforts rescuing, caring for, and finding forever homes for forgotten, abused, and unwanted animals.
Free pets (not from the shelter) usually haven’t received any medical
care, so while you may initially save on an adoption fee, the medical costs
will add up quickly. The vaccines can cost $62, de-worming can cost more than
$24 depending on the size of the animal, up to $125 to spay a dog, up to $80 to
spay a cat, up to $85 to neuter a dog, and up to $50 to neuter a cat!
Our adoption fee ($85 for canines and $65 for felines) includes their
first vaccinations (Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella), de-worming, medical care, and
spay/neuter (required by law).
Vaccines, medical care, food and transportation while the pet waits
with us for a forever home are provided by the New River Humane Society. The Fayette
County Animal Control Center and donations to the New River Humane Society also
help to provide care for animals in the shelter who may have medical bills that
are much higher than any possible adoption fee.
You must have a valid driver's license or state issued ID, and cash or local check. There are absolutely no refunds.
