Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:


 August2015 074  Butch - is also a 2-3 year old neutered male Chihuahua whose elderly owner could no longer care for him. He very much wants to be someone's lap dog. He is not dog aggressive but does like to be the alpha. He would probably do best in a home either without other dogs or with a dog that is larger and won't let him boss them around. He is great with people and loves belly rubs just as much as Sunny. Butch is also current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms.
 August2015 097  Ombre - is a sleek handsome 1 year old neutered male. He is a very laid back and friendly guy. He does like to play and gets along well with other cats. Ombre is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. 
 Katrina1  Katrina - is a beautiful and normally friendly 1 year old spayed female. She has a lovely long silky silver and white coat. Katrina is playful and very sweet the majority of the time. Unfortunately, she can be a little snippy if she is bored or does not feel that she is getting enough attention (must be the diva in her). Katrina would do best with an experienced cat owner and in a home with lots of activity to keep her mind stimulated.
 Butters1  Butters - is a 2-3 year old soon to be spayed female. She is a very sweet young lady who loves to give head bumps. She was originally found as a stray who was very thin and full of parasites. With deworming, a little TLC, and good veterinary care she is now feeling healthy and ready to find a loving home where she will be cared for properly. Butters is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV, and heartworms.


Adoption fees are $150 for cats and dogs and $20 for other small animals.

All animals are examined by a veterinarian prior to their adoption. Dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated as is appropriate for their age, and dewormed. Dogs are tested for heartworms and cats are combo tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV. If a kitten or puppy is still too small to spay or neuter adopters have the option of only paying a $75 adoption fee and later taking the animal to a veterinarian of their choice for spaying or neutering at their cost or they may pay the $150 adoption fee and have the animal spayed or neutered at Town and Country Animal Hospital at no additional charge once the animal is old enough.
The adoption fee on most small pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc. is $20.
