    WAITING FOR JUST THE RIGHT ONE

    Don't be discouraged if, when you first visit us,  there are no animals of the breed or type that you are interested
    in. MCHS takes in new animals every day. We also have a waiting list and can call you when an animal matching
    your preference becomes available. Before choosing your pet, you can speak with an adoption counselor about
    whether your choice of a particular type or breed will be best for you.  Don't be afraid to ask questions. This
    commitment must work for you as well as the pet.

    SHELTER ADVANTAGES
    In an effort to make good matches between people and animals and to place pets in lifelong homes, MCHS
    provides adoption counseling and follow-up assistance, such as pet parenting and dog training classes and
    behavior counseling.   Adoption fees are usually much less than the purchase price of an animal from a pet store
    or breeder.  Your new pet will be vaccinated, de-wormed, and spayed or neutered and ready for their new forever
    home!

    WHY PAY A PET ADOPTION FEE?
    We consider the fee a small donation towards the cost of caring for the animal while in our care.  It may be
    tempting to look for a free pet in your local classifieds rather than pay a pet adoption donation, but the reality is no
    pet is free.  You'll be responsible for the vet care, food and supplies for the rest of their life.  Pet adoption fees vary
    by organization but often only cover the very basic veterinary care you would have to pay for with your "free" pet.  
    You will find our fees are very competitively priced.

   WHERE DOES MY ADOPTION FEE GO?
    Spaying/Neutering: $150.  Distemper vaccinations: $20-30 x2.  Rabies vaccinations:  $15-20.  Heartworm test:  
    $15-35.  Flee/tick treatment:  $50-200.
