Effective immediately, we will be enforcing the $25 application fee. If you are applying to adopt an animal, we will not review an application until the $25 fee is received. We’ve recently had many, many applications received on our animals and then the persons change their minds, go get another animal elsewhere or just don’t want the animal any longer. The application fee WILL be deducted from the adoption fee when the animal is picked up on adoption day. That means if adopting a dog, you will have the remaining $225 on adoption day, $15 on cat adoption day and then per bird depending on size. Sorry if we’ve inconvenienced anyone, but this will now be our policy going forward. Thank you all and we appreciate your understanding on re-enforcing this policy.
