 Here are this weeks adoptions at the Animal Services Unit

 

 

 
     
     
     

The Animal Services Unit desires to provide the best possible homes for our available animals. Be sure you are ready for the responsibility of a new pet before you take one home. They deserve a family that will care for all their needs for as long as they live, which could be several decades in some cases. The adoption cost is a $60 non-refundable fee. * You must also pay the $10 County registration fee which is payable at the time of adoption

 

Animals may be adopted from the shelter between noon and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

All animals have been spayed or neutered prior to being placed in our adoption area. They have also received routine vaccinations and deworming for hooks and rounds. Dogs are not tested for heartworms. Adoptive owners are responsible for rabies vaccinations.

Are You Ready for a New Pet?

  • Do I have the extra time needed to properly care for an animal?
  • Can I afford the extra costs of being a pet owner such as vet bills, food, medication, toys, grooming and more?
  • Am I renting? If YES, am I aware of any animal restrictions, such as breed or weight? Will there be additional costs added to my lease?
  • Do I have any other pets? If so, will the animals get along with each other?
  • Will I be able to provide a stable and loving home for a pet for the next 10-20 years?

Available pets may be viewed at one of the following sites:
