All adopted animals will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, protected again fleas and ticks, microchipped, sent home with a free bag of Science Diet pet food, and much more!
The shelter has also partnered with local veterinarians to provide a free Health Care Certificate with every adoption. The certificate offers a free exam for your pet from your choice of partricipating veterinarians and has a value of up to $500 in savings.
