KINGSTON is a gorgeous boy who's finally on a path of greatness, good health, and well-being! This beautiful 2 1/2 year old sable German Shepherd was used as a breeder dog and was finally surrendered due to the terrible skin condition that had taken over a good majority of his body. He had a horrific case of mange that covered approximately 3/4 of his body - his paws were even swollen and painful. But what we found out as he was surrendered shocked us even more. This poor boy has been dealing with mange since he was 6 months old! His breeder/owners continued to have him breed even though he was in rough shape. We're so happy to say this is all in his past, and he's recovering nicely in his foster home.
KINGSTON'S ADOPTION FEE: $300
This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.
