We accuired our dog through the animal shelter and I am so gratefl to their service of our town. For a minimal fee, the animal is registered to you. I believe shots may be paid for as well. There are many animals in need of homes, and this is the place to get them from! It is located far on the outskirts of town at Lower Lake Rd in the south end, and may be difficult to travel there if you are not familiar with that part of town.
