Adoption Fees

E-mail Print PDF

Adoption Fees (an essential source of revenue for the Shelter): 

Type of Animal/Fee (updated July 10,2013)

  • Cat (4 months and older) - $50
  • Kitten (younger than 4 months old) - $70
  • Dog (4 months and older) - $95
  • Puppy (younger than 4 months old) - $115


Important Notes:

Our adoption fees may appear slightly higher than other shelters because PHS spays and neuters all animals before they leave the shelter. It is a responsible way to do our part about overpopulation of unwanted animals. It also prevents the possibility of these animals’ offspring becoming shelter residents in the future. 

Discounts are available! Any individual interested in adopting a senior animal or more than one pet at a time should contact shelter staff for more details at (315) 265-3199 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
