Adopting A Pet
- Dogs: Starting at $75
- Puppies: Starting at $100
- Cats: Starting at $25
- Kittens: Starting at $25
When you adopt a dog or cat from Canyon County Animal Shelter, you receive a value package as part of the adoption. This value package is worth over $250. This includes:
- Your pet will be spayed or neutered
- Vaccinations, including rabies
- Dogs will be microchipped and cats will receive an ID tag
- Slip leash for dogs
- Pet carrier for cats
- 30 days of free pet insurance from ShelterCare covering pet in case of illness or accidental injury.
- Booklets and other educational material plus coupons for food, merchandise and services from various businesses.
We do have some highly adoptable dogs and puppies that have higher fees, and this extra fee allows us to provide care for the longer period of time it takes to adopt out less adoptable puppies and dogs.
All our fees may vary based on the age, breed and size of the animal. Our adoption fees enable us to provide care and veterinary services while the animals are at the shelter.
"BETTER WITH A BUDDY" PROGRAM
If you choose to adopt two cats or kittens together, we will waive adoption fees on the second cat/kitten.
"SENIORS FOR SENIORS" PROGRAM
Adopters aged 60 and older can adopt an animal aged 7 or older and all adoption fees will be waived.
Adoption fees will only be waived once in a 2 year period.
We encourage everyone to come out and visit the dogs and cats at the shelter. We have individual Get-Acquainted Rooms, or you can walk a dog in our fenced-in dog park.
Note: All prices and programs are subject to change without notice.

Spaying and Neutering
We believe that spaying and neutering pets is the number one way to reduce the terrible problem of pet overpopulation in the United States. All animals from CCAS will be spayed or neutered before being adopted.
