Adoptions at Higher Ground Animal Sanctuary


At Higher Ground Animal Sanctuary, our goal is to attract responsible pet owners and to help them provide permanent loving homes.  To that extent, we ask potential adopters to give serious thought to the responsibilities of pet ownership. The ultimate goal is to attempt to match the animal with the most suitable home. All animals released from Higher Ground Animal Sanctuary are to be altered, micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, and provided with instructions regarding medical & nutritional needs.



Adoption fee ranges from $73.00 - $730.00 depending on the animal (cats, dogs, farm animals, horses), and includes the above-mentioned services.



Animals who are not ready for adoption qualify for our Foster-to-adopt program, where potential adopters are able to care for the animal until they are ready to be adopted. Please fill out a Foster Application and indicate that you would like to Foster-to-Adopt.
