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:
Toby was rescued by A4A just in time! Can you believe this sweet little boy was a death row dog at a high-kill shelter? The shelter where Toby was located kills 99% of the pets who enter their doors...unless a rescue like A4A steps up to help! Toby was successfully rescued and transported with the help of several amazing volunteers to A4A. Upon his initial health check, it was found that Toby picked up parvo from his time at the shelter. A4A worked together with our volunteers and with Dr. Anna Wiebe, our amazing veterinarian- to heal Toby and in a very short time, Toby was an incredibly happy, healthy puppy- full of love and playfulness as every puppy should be. Shortly after that, Toby was adopted by Alex- where he now has a loving forever home to call his very own!
