Adopting A Friend
We do our best to prepare the dogs and cats for adoption by providing the following services:
- All animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
- All animals are tested for diseases and illnesses, then treated if necessary.
- All dogs have received a bordetella vaccine, distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, monthly flea treatment and nail trims.
- All cats have received distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, monthly flea treatment, nail trims, and worm treatment.
- All dogs are given a microchip prior to adoption.
- Each adoption comes with 30 days of free health insurance. Most local veterinarians offer a complimentary initial exam of a shelter pet.
When adopting a pet, try to avoid making a spontaneous decision that you may end up regretting. When searching for the perfect companion pet it’s important to consider a number of things:
- Will you be able to reliably afford food, toys, veterinary care, and any other needs your new pet may have?
- Do you have an appropriate place to keep your new pet? Will you or a family member be around to walk your dog? Can you feed them on a regular schedule?
- Have you discussed the adoption with everyone you live with?
- Your pet can live up to 20 years. Will you be able to keep taking care of them for that duration?
- Will the pet you’ve chosen get along with any other pets you already have?
- Do you have children that the new pet might not be able to live with?
If you would like to talk about any of these considerations, please call us at 778-2638 and we may be able to help or at least give helpful advice!
