DeKalb County Animal Solutions

Pet AdoptionPlease come to the shelter if you see a pet that you are interested in. We are unable to answer questions about adoptable pets over the telephone or via email. If you reside in Kansas City, MO, you should also count on to buy a city license tag for $12 – this is anything you will renew each year upon vaccinating your pet. You can save time by downloading and finishing the adoption application before you arrive at the animal shelter. The central situation in adoption is regardless of whether a new owner can offer a safe, secure, permanent house for the pet. We strive to spot each pet in a furever residence, which is why the first step of adoption from our shelter is coming to our place and interacting with the pet of your selection.

Considering that it is so essential for puppies to be socialized properly and find out manners to prevent them from becoming unwanted, the IACC now requires a $50 instruction deposit in addition to the adoption fee for all puppies (up to five months) that are adopted. Bring the animal’s kennel card (positioned on the front of the kennel) to the adoption lobby.

Please bear in mind: This is an adoption of a rescued pet, not a purchase the adoption counselor could determine a distinct pet is not a excellent match for your household or life-style. The St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center is an Open Admissions Shelter, which indicates that we accept authorized stray animals regardless of their adoptability. If and when that type of animal finds refuge in our shelter, our employees and our volunteer Pet Match Coordinator will try to make the purr-fect match! To discover far more about the procedure, study our Pet Matching write-up in the Pet Care section.

If you see a pet you are interested in, be positive to note his or her name on your application. If your pet ever ends up lost at the Animal Service Center, we want to be in a position to get them back residence to you as rapidly as feasible. Dog adoption costs variety from $75 to $300 depending on a variety of elements including their age, whether they are purebreds or mixed breeds, and more.

A more restrictive view that some shelters attempt to integrate as component of the adoption agreement puts conditions on when and why the adopter could arrange to move the animal to a new household. The adoption charge contains spay or neuter, microchip and microchip registration and all vaccinations proper for the pet’s age. If your pet is displaying signs of illness, take him or her to a veterinarian for treatment. Right after you full a puppy coaching class (simple obedience) inside the 1st six months of adoption you will be refunded the $50 deposit. Be quiet, calm, loving, and gentle and your pet will come to love and trust you.
