Every time you adopt a pet from the Clay County Animal Shelter, you enable us to save the life of another animal in need.

Our Adoption Process

Step 1. Fall in Love

Stop by the shelter to find your new best friend.

Step 2. Meet with a Staff Member

Our staff will fill you in on the pet’s story and answer any questions you may have. These questions will help ensure that your new pet will be a great fit for your family.

Step 3. Complete the Adoption

After you find the dog or cat that best fits your home, you will fill out an adoption contract.


Adoption Fees

The regular adoption fee for a cat is $45 and for a dog is $80.

To make your adoption speedy, please bring the following items with you:

  • Picture ID with your current address
  • Your landlord’s telephone number, if you’re a renter
  • Proper form of payment (cash or check)

All adoptions include spay, neuter, rabies, and dhlpv/fvrcp vaccine.
