Pick a pet, save a life.

A dog. A cat. A cat who chases dogs. A dog who snores like a cat. It really doesn't matter. Just adopt. They all need homes, they're all perfect, and they're all waiting. Had a bad day? What bad day? Spilled a snack? Here, boy! Need a hug? So do they.

Adoption Fees

When you adopt from AHS, you’re not only saving a life, you’re also saving a lot of money. At AHS, our adoption prices vary according to the age, breed, and size of an animal.

Our most popular breeds have higher adoption fees in order to leave a financial legacy for animals in our program that need specialized medical care or training in order to find a loving home.
