We encourage every person wanting to adopt to come by the shelter and spend some time with the pet to make sure the bond between you and your pet is formed.
We currently do not have an adoption fee; however, the cost associated with spaying/neutering will be collected at the time of adoption. The total cost to adopt is $100 for dogs and $80 for cats which includes the spay/neuter, rabies, microchip, and a city license (if applicable).

Yes! Every dog and cat over the age of 4 months must have a city license that is renewed annually. A city license can be purchased at the Animal Shelter at a cost of $5 for altered animals and $15 for unaltered animals.

Under the current law, each household is only permitted to own 4 animals (dogs and cats) within the city limits. This can be any combination of dogs or cats but cannot total more than 4 pets.
No!! Dogs that are predominately bully breeds are allowed within city limits but must be registered with Animal Services. You can find a list of the bully registration requirements at the following link: https://cabotanimalsupportservices.com/services/pit-bull-registration/
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a true "No Kill" shelter as every organization must make tough calls when difficult health situations arise. Our humane euthanasia numbers are extremely low and hoover between 1-3% which gives us a "Live Release" rate of around 97-99%. Due to the volume of animals that we see every year and a large number of those being displaced and at a health disadvantage sometimes we do have to humanely euthanize when the number of animals in our care exceed the number we can house humanely.
