The Mae Bachur Animal Shelter takes in hundreds of animals each year. Each of these animals needs food and shelter while they await the next stage of their lives: adoption. The staff at the shelter works diligently to match each animals with a suitable home. Much of that work is done with the animals themselves, including teaching basic manners, housebreaking, and socialization.
The shelter also works to ensure prospective adoptive families are a good fit for the animals they want to adopt. All adopters must complete an application and provide two personal references. There is also a mandatory 24-hour waiting period between submission of an application and application processing to ensure that prospective adopters have enough time to fully consider the lifetime commitment of adopting an animal. Typically, the full adoption process takes two to three days to complete.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats include:
- Vaccinations while in shelter
- Vet checkup while in shelter
