Adoption Fees

Zoes runs completely on donations. Every animal we bring in needs medical care, whether it’s a basic checkup and vaccines, or major surgeries.  And although our vets give us a discount, we still have to pay for this medical care. If you’ve owned an animal before, you know it adds up fast. So adoption fees are one way that we can stay afloat and continue to save lives as well continue our SNR/TNR program.

Another reason why we charge adoption fees is that pets are never really ‘free’, and we need to know that adopters can acknowledge that. This why even our courtesy posts have an adoption fee.

Here’s what we charge for a spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed animal. Amount of vaccines depend on length in care.

o $350 for dogs over a year old
o $375 for puppies under a year old
o $350 for a bonded pair of dogs

o $150 for felines 6 months old and older.
o $200 for kittens under 6 months old
o $75 for senior cats 7 years and older.
o $25 for special needs cats.
o $300 for two kittens under 6 months old.
o $250 for a one feline 6 months old and one kitten under 6 months old.
o $225 for two felines 6 months old and over.

Special cases
Our high demand animals, and those who have had extensive medical care, may have higher adoption fees but we will also have ones with a reduced adoption fees. The profile of the animal will indicate if there’s a special adoption fee.

Animal adoption fees can be paid by cash, money order, or email money transfer. We will also have the option of donation on the adoption contract on top of the adoption fee and any donation over $20 will receive a tax receipt..

You will also receive one free vet exam from one of our partner vets (certain clinics only) that you can use for next year for your new pet’s annual exam.

Adoption fees are nonrefundable.
