Adoption Fees

Why Do Rescues Have Adoption Fees?

Along with daily care costs, the adoption fees help LIFE House for Animals cover vaccination and medical prep costs for the pets.

Adoption Fees:

$80 which includes Kentucky sales tax.

In an effort to encourage the adoption of our guests, our adoption fees are minimal and do not represent the time or investment made in the medical care and day-to-day services provided to our guests. Any additional donations made at the time of adoption are greatly appreciated!

Our priority is always to place our guests in the best forever home; therefore circumstances may result in fee reductions.

Adoption Inclusions:

At adoption, life house for animals guests will be current on the following tests and vaccinations:

  • Rabies 1 or 3 year.
  • Distemper / Parvo (DHPP or FVRCP)
  • Bordetella
  • Heartworm Test or Feline Leukemia/FIV test
  • Altered- females spayed, males neutered
  • Microchip implanted
