Prepay

Found a cat or a dog you are interested in, but it is not ready for adoption? You can always prepay the adoption fee. That means you will get first choice in adopting the animal if the owners do not claim their pet. If the animal is claimed by their owners a full refund or a gift certificate will be issued or you may donate the money to the shelter.
