FRIENDS OF EDEN ANIMAL SHELTER ADOPTION POLICY Adoption Fee = $125.00 Dogs/Puppies Adoption Fee = $75.00 Cats/Kittens Every animal that comes to Friends of Eden Animal Shelter is provided with a basic standard of care to prepare them for adoption. This includes spay/neuter, testing for common diseases, and vaccinations. The majority of animals that enter our rescue center have NOT received this care prior to their arrival. The costs can add up to a significant amount for us. Our adoption fees help us to recover only a PORTION of these expenses. Most of our dogs and cats have been abandoned, neglected, or simply “thrown away”. Our goal is to place each of our animals in a loving home to live out the rest of their lives. We will review your application and contact your veterinarian for a reference. We may also require a home visit if necessary. All of our dogs or cats older than 8 months will be spayed/neutered. They are fully vaccinated and will have a heartworm test and de-wormed. PUPPIES AND KITTENS Puppies and kittens will be vaccinated and will need to be spayed and neutered when ready (per city ordinance). All puppies/kittens adopted from Friends of Eden Animal Shelter will be house dogs/cats. There will be NO tying on chains, all pets in adopters household must be spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. Adopter’s pets must have basic manners to accept new puppy or kitten, and be able to afford a new addition to their household. NO EXCEPTIONS! We refuse to add to the problems we already have here. Our fosters have put too much time and energy into socializing and crate/potty training to adopt to ignorant people.
