To place any animal on hold for adoption consideration (MUST be done in person and with a completed application)
The FSAC & SPCA runs special adoption pricing frequently throughout the year. Please check with us on special adoption promotions.
If an animal is returned after the 14-day period a $20 surrender fee will apply. An adopted animal MUST be returned to the shelter if you can no longer care for it.
The FSAC & SPCA will not knowingly adopt out a sick animal. We do everything possible to keep our animals clean and disease-free, including providing protective inoculations. We require that you take your newly adopted pet to your vet within the first 7 days after adoption. If they become ill within the first 7 days of arriving at your home, you must decide to return it to the shelter or to pay for vet care at your own expense. If you have a statement from your vet, or have been seen by our vet and the animal is returned to us within 7 days, all adoption fees will be refunded.
