Adoption Fees

Once you have chosen a cat or dog there is a $20 hold fee for 24 hours.

You will then need to go home and make sure this is the right decision for your family. If you are adopting a dog, you will need to arrange to bring your dog (if you already have one) in for a dog meeting. Once you are sure you have found your purrrrfect furry friend, you can make an appointment with Sonya, our adoption centre manager, and she will complete the paperwork with you.

You can then take your new pet home.

Please note, there will no be same day adoptions.
