Shelter service fees such as adoption fees cover only a small portion of our costs, generally no more than 25 percent in any given year.
Along with donor support, adoption fees cover sheltering, routine or major medical care, and behavioral services for animals—many of whom reside at the shelter for a considerable length of time before being adopted. Each adopted animal is vaccinated, dewormed, spayed or neutered, and flea treated. An adoption package includes a collar, identification tag, microchip and registration, leash or carrier, and first veterinary visit. Other benefits may also be added on a case by case basis.
