All volunteers who show dogs are able to COMPLETE THE ADOPTION at the time of your visit, when appropriate. Our Adoption Fee is $260.00. All of our dogs come spayed/neutered (if age permits), current on shots and heartworm tested. They are fully evaluated by our volunteers so we are better able to match you with the right dog for your household.
