Adopting Animals

Adopting Animals:

Thank you so much for considering adoption! We strive to place as many safe and healthy pets as possible into loving, forever homes. We work had to match our adoptable pets with families who’s expectations, personalities, lifestyles and homes best fit that pet’s needs. We want you to take your time in selecting the right pet.

Adoption fees help us to cover some of the cost of care for our pets. The adoption includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchip and the gift of 30 days of pet health insurance (if you provide us with your email address). The adoption price is a great value, as the adoption fee only covers a portion of these services we provide for the animals.

Adoption Prices:

Dogs $150
Puppies $200
Small Dogs & Older Puppies $175
Cats $50
Kittens (less than 4 months) $100

We want all of our adoptions to be successful! When bringing home a new pet, you may find yourself with quite a few questions. We have created this handbook to try and help our adopters with their new pet!

About Delta Animal Shelter:

The Delta Animal Shelter is a 501(c)3 private, non-profit organization dedicated to the direct care of the animals of Delta County. This shelter was operated by the County Sheriffs department until budget cuts forced a permanent closure of the facility in August of 2011. To prevent a permanent closure, a group of animal lovers, The Delta Area Animal Society, took over operations.

We are the county’s only animal shelter, providing a safe shelter, food and medical care to over 1200 animals each year. We are an open-admissions shelter, and turn no animal away. We shelter and provide direct care to any animal in need. Each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new forever home. Warm blankets, toys and treats, time spent socializing with caring people; all are a part of the animals’ experience at the Delta Animal Shelter.
