2,300 pounds of canned food

• An average care cost of $500 per year
(excluding special vet care needs)

SOCKS shelters 70 cats per day on average throughout the year.

Looking for a Free Pet?
Why pay an adoption fee?
 
It may be tempting to look for a free pet in your local classifieds rather than pay an adoption donation. But the reality is, no pet is free: You'll be responsible for her vet care, food and supplies for the rest of her life. Adoption fees vary by organization, but often cover the basic veterinary care you would have to pay for with your "free" pet.

Where does my adoption fee go?
 
Ask the rescue group, but fees usually include:
 
    * Spaying/neutering $150-300
    * Several FVRCP vaccinations $20-30 x4
    * Rabies vaccination $15-25
    * Flea/tick treatment $20
    * Microchip $25
 
Another note on “free” pets: Unfortunately, individuals who do not have a pet's best interests in mind often scour classifieds for “free to a good home” ads. Therefore it’s recommended that anyone seeking to rehome a pet request an adoption fee.
