Why is my pet microchipped?

All pets that are rescued through Harlee's Angels are microchipped prior to adoption. This provides information for your pet to be returned to you if he gets lost and ends up at animal control, a veterinary office, or another rescue. Keeping your contact information for your pet up to date is the adopter’s responsibility. Depending upon the manufacturer, there may be a yearly or lifetime registration fee involved, which is not included in adoption fees.

Why is a home visit and why is it required?

A home visit is an in-home pre-adoption interview. You will be visited by a Harlee's Angels volunteer and usually the pet you are wanting to adopt if the pet is in your area. This is to verify the information provided on the adoption application as well as explain our adoption policies. This also allows you to see how the pet may behave in the new environment and interact with any potential four-legged siblings.

Why is the adoption fee so high?

The adoption fee only covers a portion of our investment into the care of your adopted pet. Your pet has been part of a foster home they have received love, socialization, and training. In addition, pets are current on all vaccinations as needed for their age unless otherwise noted, microchipped, and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Taking all the costs of feeding and other supplies as well, our adoption fee is really very minimal.

What do the adoption fees cover?

Adoption Fee Includes:

  • Current Shots
  • Microchip
  • Deworming
  • Heartworm test (adult dogs)
  • Spay/Neuter


All pets are microchipped prior to adoption from Harlee's Angels. Depending upon the company used, there may be a yearly or lifelong registration fee required. This fee is not included in HA's stated adoption fees and is the responsibility of the adopter.
