Medical Care Of Animals

As soon as a dog or cat arrives at our shelter, it is vaccinated against distemper. Cats are tested for feline leukemia prior to adoption. We offer canine parvovirus (parvo) tests upon request, and we will not allow a dog out of our shelter if we have an outbreak of this virus.

If a dog stays at our shelter for more than ten days, we give it a rabies shot. We check every animal for fleas, ticks, and ear mites, and it is treated if there is a problem. We also check for lumps, bumps, hair loss and other signs of disease, and if necessary, we will treat the animal or have a vet treat it.
