To adopt an animal from Open Door Animal
Sanctuary you must provide the utmost care for our angels.
We believe the perfect home is one that provides a lifetime
commitment, adequate shelter, good food & fresh water,
regular veterinary care and 100 kisses a day.
We screen our potential
adopters to make sure they will provide the care that we feel
is important to our animals. If we do not feel your home is
the right fit for one of our animals we will give you other
options. Being a no-kill shelter, we know our animals and know
the type of homes they will be best suited for.
Our adoption fee is $120.00.
This fee includes all necessary shots up to the date of adoption (at
least 2 sets) spaying or neutering, microchipping and heartworm
testing. Heartworm preventative is also given. Our cats are
tested for feline leukemia and FIV (Feline Aids). All animals are
wormed and given flea and tick preventative. And our
animals are socialized.
Animal Sanctuary is very proud to report that we did
1,240 adoptions in 2005.
A Health Care Program has been
established to maintain good health in all our animals while
they are at the Sanctuary. In our facility new animals are

temperament of the animals at the Sanctuary. Knowing the personality
of the animal helps determine the type of home for which it

Open Door Animal Sanctuary
requires that all adopted animals be spayed or neutered, so
all animals (puppies and kittens included) adopted from ODAS
will be spayed or neutered before leaving our facility - no
exceptions. By preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first
place, we decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats. Open
Door Animal Sanctuary has made every effort to provide clean
shelter, good food, and health care to as many animals as
possible. When an animal is adopted, we expect its new owners
