What is the cost to adopt an animal?

The cost for adopting a dog or cat from the Linda McNatt Animal Care and Adoption Facility is normally $60. There are some situations in which this fee may be reduced, due to special circumstances involving that animal. The fee includes:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Pre-surgery testing
  • Species specific vaccinations
  • Rabies vaccinations
  • Micro-chip registration

For Denton residents adopting, the registration fee is waived per section 6-18 of the City Ordinance
