ADOPTING A FRIEND
There is an adoption process and an adoption fee that is designed to offset some , but not all of the veterinarian costs to the charity, protect the pet, and in so being simply a token of good faith. AVA, to the best of it’s ability, tries to adopt these pets, who have been members of our foster families, to responsible pet owners, in other words, people who intended to have their pets altered in the first place and who will also want to treat the pets as members of their families. In other words, we know that these people will realize that the fee is no where near that charged by regular veterinarians.
All adult animals available for adoption are vaccinated, microchipped, neutered/spayed, dewormed and defleaed. Regarding kittens, they will have had their 1st needles - core vaccine with is FVCRP - Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus & Panleukopenia (distemper) and have been dewormed and defleaed at the time of adoption and arrangements for the neutering/spaying will occur at appropriate time. New owners will be responsible for their second set of needles and rabies vaccine at the appropriate time. AVA does not do the Leukemia Vaccine and booster.
