The fee to adopt a pet from the Young – Williams Animal Center ranges from $75 to $150, depending on the animal’s age, how long he or she has been at our shelter, etc. If you adopt two pets of the same type (dog, puppy, cat, kitten) from the Center within 30 days, you will receive a discount on your adoption fee!
“Best Buddies”, pets who must be adopted together, are adopted for the regular adoption fee of one of the pets plus $25. Non-traditional pets (such as rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc.) are available at various adoption fees. Please call the Center at 865-215-6599 for more information about our adoption fees.
The adoption fee includes a spay or neuter, shots (except for rabies vaccine, which you must get at your own vet), a heartworm test for dogs and a feline leukemia combo test for cats, check and treatment for intestinal parasites, application of flea control, a microchip, and an exam by our Animal Center veterinarian.
