Animals for Adoption

All animals at Lexington County Animal Services undergo temperament and physical exams before being placed for  adoption.  Temperament testing includes how the animal reacts with people, other animals, and any signs of food aggression.  All animals are spayed or neutered before being placed for adoption.  Some pets may need to return for suture removal or rabies vaccinations.  You will be notified of any follow-up at the time of adoption.    National Pet Adoption Event

All dogs have an adoption fee of $40.00  and the following procedures are included:

  • Heartworm testing, if old enough, and placement on heartworm prevention
  • De-worming
  • Routine and rabies vaccinations if old enough.  If the dog is not old enough at the time of adoption, you will be instructed when to return for rabies vaccination.  This is included in the adoption fee.
  • Routine flea prevention
  • Micro-chipping

All cats have an adoption fee of $40.00  and the following procedures are included:

  • Feline Leukemia Testing
  • De-worming
  • Routine and rabies vaccinations if old enough.  If the cat is not old enough at the time of adoption, you will be instructed when to return for rabies vaccination.  This is included in the adoption fee.
  • Routine flea prevention

We strive to provide you with a healthy animal at the time of adoption, but there are some things that can be dormant or not show up until a later time.  For this reason we highly recommend that you take your new pet to your regular veterinarian for an exam and other vaccines they deem necessary.
