Our average cost to care for an animal is $500, and some require much more. The fees for adopting animals allow us provide medical care, food, and shelter for the animals in our care. Your adoption fee is one additional reason to feel great about bringing home a new family member.
Dogs and cats: Spay/neuter surgery and age-appropriate vaccines, microchip, up-to-date flea/tick preventative, ID tag, certificate for veterinarian exam within 14 days of adoption (participating vets only, strongly recommended), any available medical records, small bag of Hill’s Pet Food
Dogs only: 1 month crate rental, discount for basic obedience training class, and a martingale collar.
Cats only: Safety collar, cardboard cat carrier.
If you find an animal you wish to adopt, we’ll sit down for an informal consultation to ensure that you and the pet you’ve selected are a good match. During this process we’ll also review the animal’s medical and behavioral records, explain policies and services available to adopters, and help you choose the right pet supplies.
PLFA will continue to support you and your pet at home. Our website is full of information that can make your pet’s transition from the shelter to your home as stress-free as possible — including tips and details about our programs and services.
Our obligation to our adopted animals does not end when they walk out the door. We want to be an ongoing resource for people and their pets. If you’re looking for answers you can’t find here, our doors are always open.
