UNALTERED ANIMALS

The Maclean Animal Adoption Center has animals that are available for adoption that are both altered and unaltered. Per Montana State Law (7-23-4202) any publically 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. We require a deposit of:

  • $100 cats/kittens
  • $200 dogs/puppies

The deposit is refundable if the adopter presenters proof of alteration of the animal within 30 days of adoption.

Per Montana State Law the spay.neuter deposit must be forfeited if the spaying/neutering is not done within 30 days if the cat or dog is more than 6 months old at the time of adoption; or by the time the animal reaches the age of 6 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.
