You must be 18 years and older to adopt an animal. Adoption applications can be filled out and submitted in person at the shelter. Applications are processed in the order that they are received and an application will not be processed until the applicant has met with the animal. Animals are available for visiting Thursday through Tuesday (closed Wednesday) from 12pm to 6 pm. While visiting, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have with staff members or volunteers, as our goal is to help you find the right match for your family. The Fredericksburg SPCA thanks you for considering one of the many animals in need of a new home.
Our fees are as follows:
Adult dogs: $150
Puppies: $250 (age 6 months and under)
Adult cats: $100
Kittens: $125 (age 9 months and under), Adopt one kitten and adoption fee on second kitten is waived!

Our adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, microchip & registration, basic vaccines, rabies vaccine (4 months and older), age-appropriate blood testing (6 months and older), flea/tick/heartworm treatments, and deworming. As a non-profit organization, our adoption fees help us to offset some of these costs.
