If you are considering the responsibility of adopting a pet, and if you see a dog or cat that you are interested in adopting, you will be asked to take some time to get acquainted with the prospective pet.
Adoption Fees are used to partially offset the substantial costs incurred in the rescue, housing, feeding, and medical treatment of the shelter animals.
Please remember, when searching for a new pet, the animals at CDHS have already been given an examination by a veterinarian, given vaccinations, been spayed or neutered, been microchipped, and many dogs have had behavior lessons and socialization.
By adopting a shelter pet, a family can make a difference for the one they adopt and for another one on our waiting list who needs a home. It's absolutely true - animal rescues have the best pets!
