The HSCC uses variable adoption pricing for it's shelter animals.
Our adoption fees offset the cost of evaluation, housing and medical care for the homeless animals that need our help.
Some of the animals in our shelter are High Profile Pets (HIPP). These higher in demand animals quickly find a loving home. Their increased adoption fee leaves a financial legacy for the other animals in our care who may need extra medical attention or more time to find a loving home. ALL PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Fees range between:
$100 for adult dogs
$125 for puppies less than 6 months.
$50 for adult cats (over 1 year)
$75 for cats 6 months to 1 year
$125 for kittens less than 6 months.
There will be special discounted fees for pairs adopted at the same time, please ask an
Adoption Counselor for details.
All adoptions are based on approved applications. ADOPTION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Adoption applications are available at the shelter, or you can download from the link below.
DOGS adopted must leave the shelter wearing training collars and a leash. (You may purchase a leash/collar from HSCC for a small fee.)
CATS adopted must leave the shelter in a carrier. (You may purchase a cardboard carrier from HSCC for a small fee.)
