Adoption Fee Facts

Every animal that DHA intakes is provided with a basic standard of care to prepare them for adoption, including spay/neuter surgery, testing for common diseases, vaccinations, and microchipping. The majority of animals that enter our shelter have NOT received this care prior to their arrival. The costs can add up to a significant amount for DHA, and our adoption fees help us recover only a portion of these expenses.
