YES!  We love seeing your fur-kids and we encourage you to bring them to the event to meet any potential pets you may wish to adopt.  All leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome.  No retractable leashes, please.  Please be considerate when walking your pet through the crowds.  We have many elderly guests and children in attendance.  Please keep your pets under control at all times.  Please "curb your pet" and clean up after them at the event.

We suggest you bring a valid ID and cash or check to pay any adoption fees there may be.

HOW MUCH ARE THE ADOPTION FEES?

Adoption fees will vary per shelter/rescue.  For more information on adoption fees, please GO HERE.

It depends on the shelter/rescue.  Some animals are not available for same-day adoptions and applications and home visits are required.

ARE ALL ADOPTABLE PETS AT THE EVENT SPAYED OR NEUTERED?

YES!  All available adoptable pets are already spayed or neutered or if they are young, they are under contract to be spayed or neutered when they are old enough to have the procedure done.
