ADOPTION FEES


 
image The adoption fee helps us defray the cost of the animal's food, boarding and medical care. Any additional donation you would like to make above the adoption fee is greatly appreciated. Your contributions are tax deductible. An average stay at FCHS for each animal costs around $500, these fees allow us to subsidize these costs.

CATS & KITTENS: Our fees are the total of vet charges and food

The feline adoption fees include age-appropriate vaccines and testing for Feline Aids and Feline Leukemia for kittens over 12 weeks of age (Please Note: No test is 100% accurate for these viruses). We spay/neuter all cats and kittens old enough for the procedures before they go home with you. We also offer low-cost options for spaying/neutering unaltered kittens when they are old enough.

DOGS & PUPPIES: Our fees are the total of vet charges and food

The canine adoption fees include age-appropriate vaccines, and testing for heartworm. We spay/neuter all dogs and puppies old enough for the procedures before they go home with you. We also offer low-cost options for spaying/neutering unaltered puppies when they are old enough.

In most instances, we do not recover the full amount spent on an animal. The vet costs alone would be prohibitive for most prospective adopters, especially, if the animal was treated for parvo, heartworm infestation, or a serious injury. Therefore, the adoption fees will range from $100 to $250 for dogs and $25 to $100 for cats. In addition to the adoption fees, we are pleased to accept additional donations to offset the costs we expend for any particular pet. We thank you in advance.

We accept Cash, Checks, VISA, MasterCard, American Express. Adoption fees may be paid online by using our Donation link.
