Standard adoption screening criteria still applies. All adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm or combo tested, and dewormed. The normal fees for these services would be more than $200.
“Dogs and cats provide unconditional love which has been shown to have positive effects on their owner’s health,” said Susan Feingold, director of the shelter. “And when you adopt a shelter pet, you’re saving a life, so both human and animal reap the benefits.”
