Our fees are always waived on all working cats.

Puppies and kittens must be at least 8-weeks old and weigh 2 pounds for surgery. We do not spay or neuter animals more than 8-years old without recent blood work. We will spay or neuter pets that are in heat.

General volunteers must be at least 16-years old, but kids 12 through 15 can participate in our Junior Volunteer Club.

When you adopt a pet, please bring:

  • A valid photo ID with your current address. If your ID does not have your current address, please bring another type of proof, such a utility bill, water bill or vehicle registration.
  • Family members needed to finalize the adoption. Due to COVID-19, friends will be asked to wait in the car, and we are not allowing people to bring their dogs in for dog-dog visits. If a dog-dog visit is necessary due to an animal’s history, your adoption counselor will advise you.

A working cat (sometimes called a mouser or a barn cat) is one with a history and temperament better suited to an outdoor lifestyle. These cats may live in a barn, stable or other outdoor setting where they have a “job” and a better quality of life.

All adoptions include:

  • Spay or neuter surgeries
  • Age-appropriate vaccinations
  • A microchip ID
  • A free wellness visit with a participating veterinarian.
  • A temporary collar and ID tag
  • A temporary leash or a carrier
