Adoption Criteria & Procedures?

Like many animal shelters across the country, we use variable adoption pricing. We can help more animals in need by pricing pets in high demand at a higher rate so the money raised by their adoption helps the other animals in our care that require extensive medical care or need more time to find a home. We often reduce the adoption fees on these harder-to-place pets in order to help them find homes. Each pet’s adoption fee is listed on the pet’s kennel card at the Starkville Animal Shelter.

All adopted animals will be spayed or neutered prior to being adopted and will be up to date on vaccinations. Please keep in mind that keeping your adopted pet safe and healthy will cost you money beyond the initial adoption fee.
