*By law we are required to charge a sterilization deposit on all unsterilized animals leaving the shelter; this deposit is refundable once the owner provides proof of sterilization within the appropriated timeframe.
The adoption fees reflect the included costs of standard vaccinations and medical exams, spay/neuter, grooming, and flea control treatment, where appropriate.
"Transfer fees" apply to animals that are being transferred to the custody of another shelter or animal rescue organization. The fee will apply only when the animal has already received vaccinations; no fee would apply for unvaccinated animals.
