To adopt from AWS, you will need to complete an adoption questionnaire. The staff will review the questionnaire with you and conduct a personal interview with you.  We reserve the right to conduct a home visit prior to approving your adoption application and placing the animal with you.  Personal identification will be required. We accept cash or check for the adoption fees.


Adoption fee for dogs is $120.00 and the fee for cats is $80.00. Adoption fees include all vaccinations (including rabies), worm treatment, and spay./neuter.  Cats are Feline leukemia tested and puppies Parvo tested. ALL ANIMALS MUST BE SPAYED/NEUTERED PRIOR TO PLACEMENT.
