Pound: These may be run by the state. As someone else stated there usually is a holding period.
Local shelters: It depends. Sometimes they’re more like a pound. Sometimes not. Sometimes they’re run by the state. However, there are regular shelters and no kill shelters. Regular shelters are usually cheaper. $ 75 – $ 200. No- Kill are more expensive, but because they may have better budget due to only excepting select and adoptable dogs they may use heartworm preventative, shots, spay, and may treat heartworms, etc.]]>
