If you decide to adopt a pet from a shelter, good for you. Just don’t expect the adoption to be free. Adoption fees are usually reasonable, but they do have to be paid. These fees vary and the funds often support humane organizations, allowing them to care for more displaced pets. Most adoption agencies and humane societies post their fees on their Web sites. The requirements for adoption should be listed, too. Review these carefully so that you will be informed before you visit the shelter or adoption site.

Since many doctors work in conjunction with humane societies, your veterinarian may have information on adoption centers. In fact, many private practitioners care for homeless pets in their hospitals, so ask your veterinarian if he has any pets in need of a good family. Also, check your veterinarian’s bulletin board for adoptable pets. Clients often post notices of available dogs and cats there.
