How much?!?

Sometimes when we tell people the cost of adopting an animal from our shelter we get a raised eyebrow or two. So we wanted to let you know all the amazing things your animal received that’s included in the adoption fee when you adopt from PHS;

  • All vaccinations & shots
  • Spay/Neuter (mandatory)
  • Free vet visit (with a participating vet)
  • 6 week pet insurance
  • Microchip identification
  • All the love and attention they need and deserve!

Routine Procedures Prior to Adoption

All routine procedures prior to adoption are included in the PHS Adoption Price.

  • Dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This translates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement.
    Average Market Cost for the Procedures
    $57.00
  • Health Checking: all animals receive a routine health check by our Veterinary technical staff prior to adoption. A Veterinarian will examine all animals requiring a diagnosis or prescription.
    Average Market Cost for the Procedures
    $50.00
  • All animals receive medication for the most common internal parasites. When an animal is suspected of having other parasites, a stool sample is taken, examined under the microscope and if positive, the veterinarian sees the animal and prescribes medication.
    Average Market Cost for the Procedures
    $35.00
  • Ear mites are common in cats; the ears are swabbed and then examined under the microscope. If the swab is positive for ear mites, the ears will be cleaned and the animal will be treated.
    Average Market Cost for the Procedures
    $45.00
  • All cats are routinely treated for fleas; dogs are treated if they have fleas
    Average Market Cost for the Procedures
    $45.00
  • The PHS received all animals, whether healthy, sick or incubating a disease. Therefore, we often have cases of Upper Respiratory Infection (a common yet very contagious cat cold). These animals must then be placed through our foster program for 2-3 weeks, often with medication and a prescription diet. *46% of all cats placed for adoption; have received foster care.
