The Adoption Process
Upon arrival at our rescue, all animals are examined by a veterinarian and given any medical treatment they require. We make sure all our animals are microchipped, up-to-date on shots, and spayed/neutered before going to their forever home. Please note: Our adoption fees are posted at the bottom of the page.

Below is a list of services we provide each animal upon rescue. Where the Love Is ensures each animal is fully vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped and healthy before adoption. The average cost of rescuing an animal can cost between $600-$1,500. Adoption fees help us cover these costs.
Please note: The averages above DO NOT include the daily expenses required to run the rescue, such as electricity, dishwasher, washing machine, food, bedding and supplies such as paper towels, etc. We rely on the adoption donations to help offset our costs associated with rescuing animals and providing housing and care before adopting animals out to their forever homes.
