Adoption Fees

Adoption fees at HSNEGA vary depending on the animal. Listed below are the general fees for adopting an animal; however, our rescue/adoption efforts cost more than the fees assigned and adopters are certainly welcome to donate more than the fee to help the next homeless pet find their second chance!

ADOPTION GUARANTEE FUND ANIMALS

Adoption Guarantee Fund animals are highly desirable and likely to be adopted very quickly. Their extra fee goes to our Adoption Guarantee Fund which enables us to continue our efforts to find homes for every healthy, adoptable animal in our care no matter how long their stay with us might be. 

*PET INSURANCE*    

HSNEGA, in partnership with 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs, provides a 30 day gift of pet insurance for your newly adopted pet; covering up to $750 of selected treatments (with a one-time deductible of $75).

The insurance must be confirmed within 7 days of the adoption for the policy to be valid – there are 3 ways to confirm – email, phone, web. 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs will send an email with an activation link and policy documents once the adoption is complete.

If the adopter has not received an email from 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs within 48hrs. of adopting their new pet, they should alert their Adoption Counselor to have their email resent.

There is a 2 day waiting period from the point of adoption to when the policy takes effect.

PLEASE NOTE: Adoptable animals over 10 years of age are not eligible to receive insurance benefits through this program.
