Vega was brought to the shelter by some Good Samaritans who had been feeding her and gaining her trust over the course of several weeks. She is an older boxer (at least 7 years old) who is up to date on vaccines and weighs 46 lbs. Vega has several health issues, we hope to address what we can and get her into a foster or adoptive home to live out her remaining golden years in comfort. Vega has a tumor on her back hock (probably easily removed) and she tested positive for heartworms. We will consult a vet to see if she can be spayed and have the tumor removed safely. Vega is also half blind from glaucoma. She has been very friendly with staff and walks well on a leash. She appears to be housebroken but cannot hold for extremely long periods of time. Vega is reactive to other animals around her cage and food (who can blame her?) and young children would be too much for her at this point. We do believe she would do well with older children. If you have a soft spot for boxers, please contact us today to help sweet Vega--she has been on her own long enough! Her adoption fee is $10.
Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00. Puppies under 4 months are $140.00 The adoption fee includes the animal's surgery, microchip, vaccinations, flea preventative, deworming medication, sample bag of food/treat samples and a free first exam with participating veterinarians. Shelter policy is that all animals must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter.
