Adoption Rates
A significant aspect of the Animal Shelter’s operation is the importance of the spay/neuter program, as it relates to our adoptable animals. All animals adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered before going home to their owners. Through close ties with Liberty veterinarians, costs for approved adoption applications are as follows:

Spayed/ Neutered Animals
  • Dog - $80 plus the cost of a heart worm test (pets 7 months and older) and Rabies vaccination (pets 4 months and older).
  • Cat
    • $55 adoption fee for cats at the Liberty Animal Shelter plus the cost of the FIV/ Feline Leukemia test and Rabies vaccination (pets 4 months and older).
    • $90 adoption fees for cats affiliated with the our PetSmart partnership because these animals are current on vaccinations.
Owning Pets in Liberty
  • All dogs over the age of four months must be vaccinated against rabies and licensed with the City.
  • Licenses are available at the Liberty Animal Shelter, all local veterinarians and at City Hall. Proof of vaccination must be provided. The license tags must be displayed on the dog's collar at all times.
