Consider what type of pet is right for your family.

  • Do you have children or other pets?
  • Do you have an active lifestyle or a quiet one?
  • Do you have an apartment or a large yard?

A pet is a long-term commitment, so it is important to give a lot of thought and consideration when making this decision.

If you are interested in learning more about a pet, send us an email at info@sosar.org or come to one of our adopt-a-thons.  If you are interested in adopting a pet fill out an Adoption Application or print off the paper application and mail in.

As part of our adoption process:

  • We may do a vet check to ensure your current pets are up to date on vaccines, fecal and heartworm tests.
  • We may also conduct a home visit to ensure that the new pet is well suited for your household.
  • Once approved, you will sign an adoption contract and take your new pet home.

Our adoption fee is $175 for dogs and $75 for cats. All pets are:

  • Up to date on shots (age appropriate rabies and distemper)
  • Heartworm tested (dogs)
  • Feline Leukemia/FIV tested (cats)
  • Treated for fleas, worms, mites
  • On revolution for parasite and flea prevention
  • Fecal tested
  • All pets are spayed or neutered at time of placement.
  • Please keep in mind that our pets receive all necessary medical tests, vaccines and treatments, and that the adoption fee only covers a small portion of these expenses.
