bullet.gif (1235 bytes) Adoption Fees:
  • A$100 adoption fee is required for cats.
  • A $150 adoption fee is required for kittens under 1yr. of age.
  • A $150 adoption fee is required for dogs under 50lbs
  • A $175 adoption fee is required for dogs over 50lbs
  • A $225 adoption fee is required for puppies or dogs with special medical needs (including sighthounds because of the anesthesia requirements)

All animals adopted from the MCSPCA are spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

We accept cash and checks only, no credit cards.  The fee includes the cost of spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, heartworm testing (for dogs), FeLV/FIV testing (for cats), deworming, and general care of the animals during their stay at the MCSPCA (food, litter, medication, vet care, etc.)."

  • ALL members of a household must be present for the adoption process.
  •  If you rent your home, you must provide your landlordís name and phone number.  Landlord consent is required prior to adoption.  To expedite this process, you can provide a copy of your lease or a signed statement from your landlord specifying the pet policy.
  •  We generally do not adopt kittens to families with young children.   
  • The MCSPCA seeks the best possible homes for the animals in our care, and we reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.
