Adoption fees play a crucial role in supporting the welfare of animals in shelters. These fees are designed to cover the costs of essential medical procedures such as vaccinations, spaying/neutering, and other necessary treatments. By paying an adoption fee, you are not only providing a loving home to an animal in need, but also contributing to the ongoing efforts of animal shelters to provide care and support to vulnerable animals.

At Ruth Steinert Memorial SPCA, we are committed to promoting the importance of pet adoption. We believe that every animal deserves a loving home, and we encourage our community to consider adoption as their first choice. By adopting a pet, you not only provide a second chance at life for an animal in need, but you also gain a loyal and loving companion. Join us in our mission to make a positive impact on the lives of animals and their human families.
