Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:


Marleigh - is a 9 month old spayed female. She is a super sweet kitty who loves everyone young and old. She loves to play and will even fetch and bring back her toy mouse when tossed for her to do so. She unfortunately, had a case of Giardia that went undiagnosed in her first home and she developed a habit of defecating on soft items outside of her litter box to try and relieve the discomfort caused by the parasites. She has since been treated and is Giardia free but still needs some retraining on using her litter box properly. She has never urinated outside of her litter box. We feel she could in fact be retrained and overall is a wonderful loving kitty who just needs a little patience and understanding. Marleigh is current on her vaccines and negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV, and heartworms.
 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.
 Pippen  Pippen - is a 9 year old neutered male. His owner recently passed away leaving him without a home. Unfortunately, Pippen is a diabetic who requires insulin injections twice daily. We know this will make it very difficult for him to find a new home but he is such a gentle soul we want to give him every chance possible. Right now his diabetes is well managed and he seems to be quite healthy otherwise. Pippen is current on his 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.
