ADOPTION FEES

Animal Tags

Though not included in our Adoption Process, all dogs & cats are required to be registered by the city of Kingston. If the pet is lost, a tag can help reunite the family quicker than without any identification and in many cases the pet can be reunited without having to come into the shelter. Tags can be purchased at the Kingston Humane Society, City Hall and some Vet Clinics. Users of the off-leash dog parks in the City of Kingston must purchase a special red tag. The cost is the same as regular tags.
