Adoption Fees


Meet Yam

Yam and his sister Ham were brought to the shelter on 10/25/2023. This duo were a little skittish at first, but have started coming around to us. They may need a little bit of time to warm up in a new home, but watching them play will give you countless hours of entertainment. Once you pick them up, they are pretty loving and their purring gives away their ruse that they aren't enjoying our love. Ham and Yam aren't old enough to be fixed yet, but they are up to date on their vaccines. If you are interested in bringing Ham or Yam home, their adoption fee is $20 with an approved application. 

Adoption Process
The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application. Please allow up to 24-48 hours for applications to be reviewed. Once approved, you can come get your new baby. Unaltered cats are $10 with a signed contract agreeing to get the cat spayed/neutered as soon as old enough or within 30 days. Already altered cats are $30. The adoption fee for a dog starts at $125 and increases depending on the dog.

Look for other cats for adoption!
