Pet Adoption


Here in our control facility we have had a very successful adoption rate. Every day we get dogs that come in for different reasons. A majority of the animals that come into our facility are all strays. When an animal arrives at our facility, the owner has 72 hours to come and claim it before it can become adoptable. 

We have a lot of wonderful sweet animals looking for their "Furever Home". Come by the Graham County Animal Control Facility before considering buying your pet from a pet store. You will find your best friend and companion, that will show you endless amounts of love, right here in our facility:Hot Temperatures Sign

Adoption Fees

The adoption fee that you pay all goes towards the animal's spay or neuter and rabies vaccination. Desert Cross Veterinary Hospital is where the animal will be taken to have the procedure done.

  • Dog Adoption Fees: Female $105 / Male $95

All adoption fees must be paid directly to Desert Cross Veterinary Hospital located at :

Cheaper Alternative

Pets adopted from control facilities typically cost less than pets purchased from a pet store. Once you add in the cost of vaccinations, spay / neuter surgery, microchip, dewormer, and other "extras," you'll be surprised what a bargain an adopted pet really is. Plus, control facility pets seem to be able to sense what they are up against, therefore turn out to be the most loyal and loving pets.
