Animal Adoption & Rescue Center


June is National Adopt A Shelter Cat Month!

To celebrate, we are reducing the adoption fees for cats in June to: 

  • $25 for cats over 6 months of age 
  • $75 for kittens 6 months and younger

Since the dogs wanted in on the party too, we are also offering the following dog specials in June:

  • $25 for senior dogs
  • $75 for large dogs (over 40lbs)

There are lots of pets waiting for adoption. Please visit us to find your purr-fect match.
