HOW TO ADOPT A PET

Adoption Contract

In order to adopt a pet from MCAR, you must fill out an Adoption Contract and submit it. Adoption Contracts are available at the shelter. 

Out of Area Adoptions

Yes, we do adopt out of our area. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship animals to you. If you are traveling to meet a shelter pet, please make arrangements before you make the trip. Call the shelter to make sure the pet is still available, 828 765-6952.

Fees & General Information

Our adoption fee is $85 for dogs; $30 kittens; name your own price for cats, which includes spay/neuter, de-worming, vaccinations (including rabies shot), and a microchip ID. Our vets spay and neuter both puppies and kittens. Some of our available pets may already be altered and available to go home that day. Some pets will require spay/neuter upon adoption. All pets are spayed or neutered before adoption. No exceptions. 

If you are planning to adopt an animal from MCAR, you should email or drop off a completed adoption contract to the shelter. The staff will then contact you to discuss adoption and authorize payment. Do not submit payment via Paypal before receiving authorization to do so from staff.
