Adopt a Dog

Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog! Adding a new furry friend to your home is a big decision and we appreciate you considering the Copper Country Humane Society in finding your new dog.

There is a lot to consider when adopting a dog and we hope you will take some time to learn about choosing the best dog for you, learning about pet care costs and researching breeds so you can have a successful dog ownership experience.

We are here to help you find the best match for your home and welcome any questions you may have about our dogs.

*We DO NOT transfer dogs to other shelters or transport for the purpose of adoption. You must be willing and able to come to CCHS to meet the animal you are interested in adopting.

*You must live within 500 miles of CCHS in order to adopt from our shelter. It’s extremely difficult to get an animal back from a distance if things don’t work out and we want to make sure you are close enough that arrangements can be made (but hopefully not needed).

All dogs adopted from CCHS are sterilized, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, had flea/tick prevention are tested for heartworm/tick-borne illnesses and are microchipped.

Our adoption fees are as follows:

All Dogs & Puppies: $100.00

Wait! Are you sure you are ready to adopt? In this blog post we have some things you should consider before adopting a canine friend.
