Requirements for Adoption

Cats are kept indoors.

Fenced in yard for all dogs

It's crucial to provide a pet with a safe and secure home so it can thrive after adoption. A terrific method to provide your new furry buddy the freedom to roam while still assuring their safety is to install a hidden fence around your property. Every pet deserves a loving home and good care, including a secure environment to live in, according to With a Little Help From My Friends, Inc.

If pet is not spayed/neutered at time of adoption a pre-paid spay/neuter receipt from your veterinarian is due at time of adoption.

Any questions about an adoption please don't hesitate to call 231.533.4070
