Affordable Adoption Fees

Clear the Shelters FINAL FEE-WAIVED
How 172 pets from Heritage Humane Society found loving homes during the 4-week national Clear the Shelters event.

Did you know, getting a pet ready for adoption can cost Heritage Humane Society between $350-$800
(sometimes even more)?

Upon intake, each adoptable pet is given a thorough wellness exam, basic feline/canine vaccines, micro-chip, flea/tick prevention, and is spayed or neutered (and more). Unfortunately, some pets are surrendered to the shelter because their families cannot afford costly medical treatments (such as heartworm treatment, which can range from $1,200 to $1,800 for large dogs, according to estimates from the American Heartworm Society).

We know the cost of this care may not be affordable to some new pet owners. To make pet adoption as attainable as possible, adoption fees at HHS range from $50-$200.

How is this possible? HHS relies on generous support from the community to underwrite the costs associated with affordable adoption fees. Your gift makes miracles happen. Your financial gifts allow us to treat the dogs that arrive at our door suffering from deadly heartworm disease, and keep their adoption fees affordable to new pet owners. Your gift underwrites the quality of care promised to every pet we take in, no matter their condition, and allows us to find new homes as quickly
as possible.

The record-breaking Clear the Shelters event saved 172 lives during the 4-week promotion. These pets are now cuddling with their owners on the couch, sleeping at the foot of a bed, and will never worry about where their next meal will come from, again. We try to keep this momentum up every day, and we realize none of these adoptions would have been possible without you. As we approach the end of the year, we hope to break more adoption records.
