Adopt a Pet!

Adopt a PetTo adopt an animal one can visit the shelter or see all our animals ready for adoption which are listed on this website. An online Adoption Application is available on this site. Upon completing and submitting the application someone will contact you. All animals ready for adoption have been spayed/neutered and completely vetted. The adoption fee is $100 for dogs. If they are Paws in Prison trained the fee is $150. Cat adoption fee is $50. We do not accept credit cards at this time, cash or check only. We do have guidelines for approving adoptions and reserve the right to deny an adoption based on those guidelines.

Micro Chipping Your Pet

Microchipping PetsWhen adopting an animal from SCHS we offer micro chipping for an additional $20. This is an excellent way to be assured that your beloved pet will be returned to you if ever lost. An orange tag for the collar comes with the chip that is inserted on the back of their neck like a shot. It is very tiny and can be detected with a scanner that most vets will have to scan a stray dog when found. Our microchips are from Petlink and we will register the animal for the adopter and an email will be sent by Petlink to the adopter. Once an account has been set up on Petlink by the adopter they will then have the ability to update their personal info at no charge as our chips are considered for the “lifetime” of the animal.

Transporting to Other Shelters

In managing our space issues for dogs we sometimes get overwhelmed with litters of puppies. SCHS has developed a working relationship with a rescue in Coloroda called Animal House Rescue & Grooming in Fort Collins, Colorado. When space is available in foster homes, they will take several dogs or puppies and see that they get adopted to good homes. We transport the animals with the help of volunteers, to Kansas City, MO where they meet a professional animal transport company who takes them on to CO. The process is a very well-oiled machine and has helped us transport many dogs over the past 3 years. This frees up space for our shelter to take more dogs and gets these puppies adopted much sooner being in a large metropolitan area with strict spay neuter laws and shortage of dogs to adopt.
