Adoption fees range from $35 to $300 depending on the size, breed, age and condition of the animal.
All adoption fees cover the animal’s mandatory spay or neuter surgery, first FVRCP (cats) or DHPP (dogs) vaccination, rabies vaccination and microchip for identification, plus a food sample and educational information.
You will need to purchase a license for your dog at the time of adoption. You can see the fees for each jurisdiction within Ada County here.
We offer discounts on adoption fees for seniors. You can learn more about that program here.
If you’re looking for a mouser to live outdoors on your property and can provide shelter and food to support a feral/barn cat, you can adopt one for $10. Visit the shelter and ask to speak with the cattery staff about adopting a barn cat. They’ll show you currently available healthy feral cats.
The cat will be spayed or neutered the next morning, receive its FVRCP vaccination and have its ear notched. You will be able to pick it up that afternoon between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.
