The Maclean Cameron Animal Adoption Center offers both unaltered and altered animals for adoption. If you choose to adopt a pet that is unaltered, a deposit is required prior to the animal leaving the facility.

Unaltered Animals

Per Montana State Law any publicly operated animal shelter may not offer any cat or dog that has not been spayed or neutered; unless a deposit for spaying or neutering the animal has been paid.

The deposit is refundable if the adopter presents proof of alteration within 30 days of adoption. (Per Montana State Law the spay/neuter deposit must be forfeited if the spaying or neutering is not done within 30 days if the cat of dog is more than 6 months old at the time of adoption; or by the time the animal reaches the age of six months if the animal is less than 6 months old at the time of adoption, or within 30 days of the adoption, whichever is longer.)

The Center requires a deposit of:

  • $125- cats
  • $200- dogs

Spay/Neuter Services

If an unaltered animal is adopted from our facility, the owner has the option of having it spayed or neutered by their veterinarian or paying a fee to have the service performed at our facility by a licensed veterinarian. The Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center only performs spay/neuter surgeries for animals that were originally adopted from our facility.
