Special Adoption Rates

Bonded Pets

To keep bonded dogs or cats, one year of age or older together, regular adoption fees may be reduced.

Match Me Up Cat Matching Gift Campaign

This annual matching gift campaign funded by a generous supporter, encourages the adoption of harder to place cats. HHS works to match the original donation amount, to double the funding. The “Match Me Up” Campaign focuses on finding homes through waived fees and specialized promotion for harder to adopt cats, including senior cats, FIV+ cats, bonded pairs, medical cases, long term residents and cats that need special homes. Veterans adopting cats through this campaign also receive special cat care packages. Match Me Up cats are identified on our website by “adoption fee donated” designation.

Senior Pets Discounts

To encourage adoptions of the wonderful, mature dogs and cats available, we offer reduced adoption fees for most dogs over 8 years and many felines.

Senior Citizen Discounts

If you are a senior citizen age 65 and up, adopting an animal 3 years or older, adoption fees will be discounted by $25 off the total fee.

Friends for Life Senior Citizen Program

Our “Friends for Life” program encourages senior citizens to discover the benefits of older animals, by matching them with no-fee, adoptable senior pets who make devoted companions for life! To qualify, adopters must be 65 years or older and choose an animal 6 years or older, after participating in our adoption process. Available “Friends for Life” pets are indicated on our website by pets 6 years and older, for adopters 65 years of age and above.

Veterans Appreciation Program

In recognition and appreciation of our military veterans, we offer special, low-cost spay/neuter, dog & cat vaccinations, microchipping and heartworm services to both active duty service men and women and military veterans.

Adoption fees for military veterans are discounted 100% for one dog or cat adoption every two years. In order to ensure all adopted animals have safe, permanent homes, eligible veterans must not be active duty.*

*We reserve the right to refuse any adoption we determine is not in the best interest of the animal.
