You can meet some of the dogs or puppies currently available by attending one of our regular Dog Showings or by appointment. Please note that these showings are for viewing and application only; we do not adopt off of the showing floor because part of our application/adoption process includes a home visit. Adoption interviews and home visits are done by appointment.
The adoption fee for a mixed breed dog over six months of age is is $250*, puppies under 6 months of age and purebred dogs are $300. The fee includes: a general exam; age appropriate inoculations of Distemper, Bordetella, and Rabies; Heartworm testing and preventative; worming; microchipping; and neutering. Our Dog Adoption Application is available online through this website.
An adoption fee must be charged to help recoup some of the costs of the substantial veterinary care we provide each dog with their specific needs. Because most of the animals we take in have had at least one home already, we choose to adopt only to those individuals who are willing to make a permanent, life-long commitment to the animal.
Because adoption fees do not usually cover the cost of the veterinary care put into the animals, we are always in need of additional monies. Please consider making a donation to help us help the animals.
Once adopted, we initiate our After Care Program as a service to the adopter to help ease the transition for both the new pet guardian and the new pet. If for some reason the adoption does not work out, A Caring Place will accept the return of one of its own. An appointment for return is required.
