By submitting this application, I certify that the above information is true. I also understand that giving false information on this application is grounds for denying my application. This application remains the property of the Culpeper Humane Society. Our adoption fee varies per dog from $150 - $250, depending upon age, breed, and medical/behavioral conditions. Accepted forms of payment include cash, checks, or money order payable to Culpeper Humane Society.
This adoption fee does not come close to what we have already happily invested in your future pet including: vet care for any medical issues (major and minor) the animal has when we first take possession, follow-up vet care, spay or neuter surgery, heartworm testing, heartworm and flea/tick preventative medication, vaccinations, deworming treatment, and microchips.
