Thank you for considering the adoption of a rescue animal! Before you decide to adopt a pet, please consider the time, effort and funds (estimated at $1000 or more annually for food, supplies, vaccination, and veterinary care) necessary to properly maintain an animal. Responsible pet ownership requires a commitment to provide care and companionship for the life of the animal. The decision to adopt a pet is an important one. In order to insure that you and your pet will be happy for years to come, we need to take time to discuss your and the animal’s individual needs and personality traits. Please take a few moments to carefully read and complete this application. The adoption fees are as follows:

  • Puppies (under 12 months): $450
  • Dogs (1 – 5 years): $400
  • Dogs (5+ years): $350
  • Cats: $150 each

Adopters are responsible for $20 annual microchip registration fee with Home Again Company.


Please note as of May 2018 we have implemented a $10 non-refundable administrative application processing fee. The application fee is to ensure that the potential applicants are serious about the adoption process and adopting a dog. 100% of this fee will go toward our rescued dogs in need.
