Anderson Animal Shelter receives no government support. Adoption fees help cover a small portion of the cost of care for our animals. Some animals arrive at the shelter with severe medical or behavioral issues and require extensive care which can be quite expensive.
Variable adoption pricing allows us to ensure high quality care for every one of our animals. Higher adoption fees for those pets who will be adopted quickly helps offset the cost of care for those who require longer stays at the shelter and more intensive care before they can be adopted.
We greatly appreciate your willingness to adopt rather than purchasing from a pet store, and for your support of homeless pets.
Adoption fees for dogs start at $100.
All adoption fees include spay/neuter, 30-day 24PetWatch trial of insurance, current vaccinations, 24PetWatch microchip ID, heartworm testing, deworming, leash, shelter ID tag and a coupon for a free vet visit at most veterinary practices in the area.
In addition, all dog adoption fees include a FREE A Sound Beginning Program's Introduction to Training class AND $75 off A Sound Beginning full program enrollment.
The estimated value of these services is more than $600!
