Adopt

HAL aims to make our adoption process as friendly as possible. To get started:

  • Do some research — Adoption Tips
  • Take a look at our cats and dogs.  We placed them here so they are easy to find:
  • Check out the cats in our lobby cage at Port Royal Veterinary Hospital
  • Complete our Adoption Application. We will contact your references and then arrange a meet and greet.  Completing the Adoption application does not obligate you to anything.  It simply gets the process started.

Why Adopt from HAL?

Our dogs, cats, puppies and kittens receive sanctuary with HAL foster families. By adopting one or more of them into your home, you make space available for our foster families to take in more animals and save more lives.

For an adoption fee of $100,* you will take home a cat that has received the very best medical care and evaluation. Every cat that leaves HAL has been:beckys face

  • examined by a veterinarian
  • spayed/neutered
  • fully vaccinated for their age
  • tested for FeLV, FVRCPC
  • treated for worms, fleas, ear mites, etc.
  • micro-chipped

For an adoption fee of $100-220,* you will take home a dog that has received the very best medical care and evaluation. Every dog that leaves HAL has been:

  • examined by a veterinarian
  • spayed/neuteredadopt_dog[1]
  • fully vaccinated for their age
  • tested for heartworms (dogs/puppies over 6 months)
  • treated for worms, fleas, ear mites, etc.
  • micro-chipped

A micro-chip will help you become reunited with your pet if your furry friend goes missing.

* We ask for an adoption fee to help us cover some of the costs we incur in medical expenses, immunization and caring for each animal (food, litter, toys etc). All donations and adoption fees go directly to the animals. Everyone in HAL is a VOLUNTEER.  No one is paid or compensated.

Note: Our cats/dogs like most shelters are termed “random source.” This means that we accept animals from all sources including stray, abandoned, and homeless animals. THERE IS SOME RISK IN ADOPTING AN ANIMAL from any shelter or humane organization since frequently we have no background information on the health and temperament of an animal or the information given to us is inaccurate. We attempt to evaluate all incoming animals for health and temperament problems; however, thorough health screenings are not provided. Often certain types of problems will not demonstrate themselves until the animal is in a home situation or until a specific time period has elapsed (as in the incubation period of certain viruses). For these reasons, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE HEALTH OR TEMPERAMENT OF ANY ANIMAL and urge the owner of a newly adopted animal to bring the animal to a veterinarian for a thorough health screening as soon as possible.
