Like many animal shelters across the country, we use variable adoption pricing. At HSNEGA we call this a Legacy Adoption Guarantee. It’s guaranteed because these highly adoptable animals are likely to have a shorter stay with us, no matter the cost and it’s a legacy because the higher adoption fees leave a legacy for other animals in our care that are older, require extensive medical care, or need more time to find their FURever home. We often reduce the adoption fees on these harder-to-place pets so thank you for helping us balance the cost of care for all of the animals.


HSNEGA, in partnership with 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs, provides a 30-day gift of pet insurance for your newly adopted pet; covering up to $750 of selected treatments (with a one-time deductible of $75). The insurance must be confirmed within 7 days of the adoption for the policy to be valid – there are 3 ways to confirm – email, phone, web. 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs will send an email with an activation link and policy documents once the adoption is complete. If the adopter has not received an email from 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Programs within 48 hours of adopting their new pet, they should alert their Adoption Counselor to have their email resent.

There is a 2 day waiting period from the point of adoption to when the policy takes effect.
PLEASE NOTE: Adoptable animals over 10 years of age are not eligible to receive insurance benefits through this program.
