Adopting a Dog


There are usually many dogs awaiting adoption at the County Shelter. Fees for adoption vary depending on what information we have on the particular dog. State law mandates that each animal adopted must have a rabies vaccination. Each dog adopted must also have a County license. State law requires us to hold an owner released dog for one day before adoption in case the owner changes his mind and wants the dog back. With every dog adopted, we give a free slip lead and a “free well-being exam” certificate offered by any of our local veterinarians. Fees paid cannot be returned if the dog is unsuitable.
