Larimer Humane Society has implemented variable adoption fees. The adoption fee for certain animals varies and is dependent on many factors including age, size, behavior, medical condition and demand.
Adoption prices range from $25 to $125 for cats and kittens, and $50 to $500 for dogs and puppies. Adoption fees for small mammals, fish, birds, exotic and barnyard animals vary. An animal’s individual adoption fees are listed on our website by clicking on the animal’s photo.
Included in the animal's adoption fee, is:
- Spay or neuter surgery for cats, dogs and rabbits. (Male guinea pigs and rats can be altered upon request for an additional fee).
- Medical examination for general good health
- Preliminary vaccinations
- Microchip identification implant and registration for cats and dogs
- Slip lead or travel box
- Post adoption medical exam from a participating veterinarian
- Discount on your first initial pet purchase from Poudre Pet & Feed
- First month of pet health insurance (credited against your adoption fee when you sign up.)
Interested adopters may place an animal on hold for 24 hours for $20.00. $10 of this deposit may be applied to the adoption fee, the remaining $10 is non-refundable. Holds cannot be made over the phone and we do not talk holds on puppies or kittens under 6 months of age.
