Adoption fees include age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, and microchip. Animals at the shelter and listed on the website include currently adoptable animals, as well as animals still on stray hold or with notified owners, therefore not every animal pictured is immediately available. Animals brought in by Animal Control or private citizens running loose are subject to a 4-day stray hold, after which they become property of the shelter and can be placed. Owner surrendered animals may be eligible for placement immediately pending medical/temperament evaluation. All adopted animals will be spayed/neutered prior to release/before going to their new homes, so there is sometimes a short wait (2-4 days, most commonly) between completion of adoption paperwork and pickup of the animal.
