Our animals are
available for adoption during our business hours. The adoption fee for dogs is $80.00 and $60.00 for cats. This fee includes one round of the necessary shots, including rabies, deworming,
micro-chipping and the spay/neuter of the animal. Our adoption fee does not currently cover a heartworm test. If you want the pet heartworm tested before adoption, you must request it and pay for it.
You need to be 18 years old to adopt a pet. We do check references before adopting a pet to a new owner and we sometimes do home visits. We want our pets to have a good loving home that they can stay
in for the rest of their lives.
We prefer not to ship pets before adopters are able to meet them, but have made exceptions. It is very hard for us to send a pet via air during the summer as our temps here are often around 100 degrees or more and that's too hot to ship! If you are interested in one of our pets, please e-mail us to request an application. We can e-mail or snail mail an application to you. Or fill out our online application. You can also fax your application in (940) 521-0792.
We will hold applications for up to 60 days if you are not sure which animal you want.
We now offer a "LIVE SEARCH" so the search will constantly be updating as new animals arrive at or shelter and as animals are adopted, transferred, etc. Not only is this a great feature for potential adopters, but also for pet owners who may be missing their beloved pet. We urge anyone missing their pets to check here first! Our shelter is the reclaim center for the City of Rule and The City of Newcastle so they will be brought here if they were picked up by Animal Control.
Please note, that because the pets displayed are updated on a "live" basis, new arrivals who are brought in as strays are held for 3 days before they are adoptable. This will ensure that we give these lost animals every possible chance to be reunited with their families. We appreciate your understanding of this policy.
