Our dogs in the San Diego area are almost 99% rescued from Mexico. Every dog is checked by a veterinarian during their general health exam upon arrival into our group.
On intake we either test for parvo and distemper or know that they are pre-vaccinated against the disease.
Dogs are immediately treated for fleas and ticks.
Dogs are treated for worms every two weeks.
Puppies under 8 months old receive 3 multiple vaccinations or another name for that is 5 in 1.
Adults receive a minimum of 1 multiple vaccine or another name is 5 in 1.
It's important to understand it is the 5 in 1 vaccine. Ask your vet ahead of time if you need any additional vaccines.
We use American made or Canadian made vaccines only.
Adult dogs receive the 3DX test: "SNAP 3Dx Test—simultaneously screens for heartworm disease, Lyme disease, and ehrlichiosis"
If the 3DX test shows positive, treated is provided before adoption.
Treatment for parasites upon confirmation of disease.
Of course, every dog is spayed or neutered, and given a microchip before adoption.
In general, we choose to feed our dogs COSTCO's dog brand food Kirkland (yellow bag).
Written landlord approval, proof of home ownership, and/or home visit may be required.
While we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate companion animal, we do reserve the right to refuse an adoption.
Meeting a dog takes place only after the application is submitted, approved, and the adoption counselor reaches out to arrange a date and time.
