a black puppy,
They need love too!
Did you know black dogs are often the last
to be adopted from an animal shelter? The general public is likely not aware of how doomed black dogs are when they
are brought to the average animal shelter. In particular large black dogs like Labradors or Lab mixes, have a very difficult
time getting adopted, and are euthanized at a staggering rate at many animal control facilities throughout the country. The
sad truth is, they are overlooked in favor of lighter colored dogs. Remember just like the color of your skin has no bearing
on who you are inside, neither does the color of their fur.
Our puppy/dog adoption fee is $250.00.
Our cat/kitten adoption fee is $99.00 (unless otherwise noted)
All of our adoptable pets are current on heartworm prevention, flea prevention and on all vaccines
as age appropriate. Whenever possible, pets are socialized with cats, kids and other dogs as available. All pets adopted
from us have a report card of health from our veterinarian prior to going to their new homes. During this visit they
also receive a microchip for identification. The initial registration fee is included in with your adoption.
Our Spay/Neuter policy is as follows: If the pet you are adopting is over 6 months of age it will
be spayed or neutered prior to going home. If under 6 months of age, we offer the new pet parent two (2) options: the
first option is the pet will be spayed/neutered at either Poplar Animal Hospital, Animal Hospital of Cornelius, Cabarrus Spay/Neuter
Clinic or Stand For Animals. The cost of the surgery is included in the adoption; the second option is the new pet parent
can have the pet spayed/neutered at their personal vet and we will refund $40.00 for puppies and $20.00 for kittens
of your adoption fee once you have the pet spayed/neutered and provide proof of this in writing from your vet. All pets
MUST be spayed or neutered no later than 6 months of age.
If you are interested in adopting one of our adoptable pets, please fill out and submit
an adoption application.
Available pets can be seen at our adoption events.
We DO NOT ship our puppies. If you
live out of state, you (the new pet parent) MUST come to North Carolina and pick up your puppy. This is not negotiable.
If you will be flying with your puppy there will be an additional $50.00 health certificate fee as the airlines will
not allow the puppy on the plane with out it. Our puppies are only permitted to go on an airplane if they will be traveling
in the passenger compartment. We require proof of this prior to the puppy leaving our facility.
