If you are adopting a puppy or kitten it will require booster shots given by your own veterinarian.

The Lawrence County Humane Society does not knowingly adopt out any sick animals. Should the animal that you have adopted become ill within one week of leaving the shelter, it may be brought back to the shelter. The Lawrence County Humane Society is not libel for any veterinary bills that are incurred should you decide to keep the animal and have it treated by a veterinarian.

By signing this document you acknowledge that you have read and understand the contents.
