Adding to the Family!

At PAWS For Life – Animal Welfare & Protection Society we take the process of adopting a new family member quite seriously. Due to the problems that can arise when someone is surprised with a “live” gift – we require that all potential adopters visit the shelter and visit our dogs in person.

Bring the Family!

Due to the problems that can arise when someone is surprised with a “live” gift – we require that all potential adopters visit the shelter and visit our dogs in person. ​ You will need to bring the whole family, including dogs, to meet potential new family members in our meet and greet area. Home checks may be made for any adopted animal. A yard must be fenced with materials and of a height appropriate for the size and activity level of the dog selected for adoption.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fees vary with the age of the animal and are noted on the Petfinder listings below. Or better yet, stop by and visit!

All animals adopted from PAWS are up-to-date are spayed and neutered before leaving the shelter. An animal may be put on hold (puppy up to 5 months old - $20, otherwise $10 min.)

This is not a complete list.
Dogs and cats come in and go out so fast sometimes that we can’t get their pictures up before they are gone.

Anyone who is interested in adopting should go to the shelter or call for more information. (543-6464).
