Meet the Adoptable Dogs

On average, there are about a dozen dogs available for adoption each day. Shelter dogs are mostly mixed breeds, but about 20% are purebreds. 

Adoption Fees

Standard adoption fees for adult dogs range from $50-$140 depending upon the dog’s size, breed, age, and other factors. For puppies, the standard fee is $310.

Occasionally, highly desirable pets (such as purebred or small-breeds) may be priced $280-$390. This allows us to lower the adoption fee for older or difficult-to-adopt animals. Promotional specials are often available; please contact us for fee information about specific animals.
