Adoption Process


Welcome to the Heavenly Paws. The first step towards adopting one of our special fur-babies is to fill out our simple one page ADOPTION APPLICATION. We verify that you have not been charged with animal cruelty. We also check with your landlord, if you rent, to be sure pets are allowed.

Adoption Fees

Kittens: $120
Adults: $40-$100
(Depending on Age and Special Needs)

The adoption fee covers them being tested for leukemia and aids, their initial vaccines, a vet check-up, treatment for fleas, worms, parasites, ear mites, and their nails trimmed.  If the cat/kitten is old enough they may have more done for them, such as, rabies vaccine and second distemper vaccine.

Also if they are old enough, they will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. If they are not spayed or neutered prior to adoption, you will be given a free spay/neuter certificate for one of our local vets. If you choose to use your own vet, we will take $20 off the adoption fee.

Our home base in Seven Valleys (York County), just below the square in York New Salem, but we have fosters throughout York. Heavenly Paws also has three satellite locations where you can visit our adoptable cats and kittens.

As you can see, our fees are very reasonable.  You are getting about $300-500 worth of service when you adopt from us. Because we are non-profit, any donations and adoption fees are a tax-write off for you.

We NO LONGER accept checks for adoptions.  Unfortunately, we have had numerous bad checks coming through and we get hit with about $45 in fees for each one. We accept Cash, Money Orders, Certified Checks, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
**For credit cards there is a $5 charge for each transaction to help cover some of the fees charged by them.**

You can also make a payment or donation through PayPal.
