All animals for adoption have been given a one year vaccination against common communicable diseases and have been treated for other medical needs when possible. All puppies and kittens have had one de-worming.

The free veterinary office visit included in the Adoption Agreement is contributed by participating veterinarians/clinics at their expense in cooperation with the LCHS to promote proper and responsible pet care. A list of participating veterinarians/clinics can be found on the Adoption Handout.

Prices of other animals for adoption such as Birds, Rabbits, Ferrets, Rats, Mice, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Ducks, Horses, etc., vary. Please inquire at the front desk.

THE ADOPTION FEE IS A NON-REFUNDABLE DONATION TO THE LEWIS & CLARK HUMANE SOCIETY TOWARDS THE CARE FOR ALL ANIMALS IN ITS POSSESSION. THANK YOU.
