Dog Adoption Application

ADOPTION PROCEDURE: All dogs must be altered (spayed or neutered); MCHS will arrange for the animal to be altered prior to adoption. The adoption fee, ($450 for puppies under 10 months, $350 for dogs 10 months and older, some pure breeds may have different fees) must be paid at the time of adoption. The fee includes spay/neuter surgery, heartworm test, applicable vaccines, and a microchip (including the registration). You must be 18 years or older to adopt an animal from MCHS.

    Please answer the following questions as accurately as possible to assist our staff in matching you with a dog:


    Most dogs adopted from animal shelters and rescue organizations will need obedience & house training as well lots of physical and mental exercise to prevent boredom, which is the root cause to many behavioral issues exhibited in dogs.

    Pet adoption is not something to do on a whim. To the animals involved this is a lifetime commitment. Before you move forward, Please be sure that you and your family are making a commitment for the lifetime of your new pet, which in some cases could be as little as a year, and in others 20+ years.
