We spay and neuter all our animals before they go home. There is an adoption fee for all animals. Cats are $75, and dogs range from $200-300. We charge an adoption fee to prevent people from getting “free” animals and selling them to testing laboratories or dog fighting rings. We also charge a fee to try to offset some of our costs. Read more about the importance of adoption fees, here.
Believe us – the adoption fees do not come CLOSE to the expense of treating, medicating, housing, feeding and providing care for these animals. It costs us $100+ to spay and neuter an animal, $30 to get them up to date on all shots, $15 to treat them for fleas/ticks, $30 to treat them for worms, $15 for fecal tests, and $40 to test them for heartworm and parvo (or FIV & FeLv if a cat). If you did all that at the vet, your costs would be triple ours.
So please understand that we are not a profit making business. The adoption fees help defray costs, but do not cover the costs of saving lives. We receive no funding from any source other than people like you, so adoption donations are a necessity to assist us in continuing this life saving work. Please read our adoption process below.
Thank you for choosing to adopt a rescue pet– you are truly saving a life!
Featured Success Story:
This trio of rescue felines have something in common-- they were all rescued by A4A and all adopted together into the same home! Although the three felines were rescued from seperate situations, they were all fostered in the same home while at A4A and became great pals. All three felines were able to stay together and they have the happiest life imaginable thanks to their adopter, Melissa McFarland!
