Domestic FAQ

Thanks for stopping by below are answers to a few common questions we receive.  

  1. What is the adoption fee?  The adoption fee for all animals is $95.
  2. What does the adoption fee cover, and why is it so much?  All adoptable pets must be spayed or neutered before leaving our facility and up to date on shots.  The majority of the fee in most cases covers the vet bill for surgery.   
  3. I found a stray cat or dog, will MCHS take it in?  Unfortunately, MCHS is not legally allowed to take in strays.  Stray animals should go to the Morgan County Animal Shelter (256) 773-2934 .
  4. I need to surrender my pet, will MCHS take it?  MCHS does accept owner surrenders when space is available.  There is a surrender fee based on the animals spay/neuter status.  Please stop by with your pet or send us a photo via e-mail to inquire further.  We request that all vet records accompany the surrendered animal.
  5. No one has responded to my call or e-mail?  Please be patient.  Our volunteer admin staff is only available to answer your questions during business hours and pre-scheduled appointments. While volunteers come to care for the animals daily, our administrative volunteers have limited availability.
  6. How can I help?  We are always in need of funds and volunteers.  Call or stop by during business hours to learn more.
