We do our best to prepare our dogs and cats for adoption by providing the following services:
All animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption, tested for diseases and illnesses, then treated if necessary. All dogs receive bordetella (kennel cough) , distemper, and rabies vaccines, monthly flea treatment and nail trims. All cats have received distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, monthly flea treatment, nail trims, and worm treatment.
Most local veterinarians offer a complimentary initial exam of a shelter pet.
When adopting a pet, try to avoid making a spontaneous decision that you may end up regretting. When searching for the perfect companion pet it’s important to consider a number of things:
Will you be able to reliably afford food, toys, veterinary care, and any other needs your new pet may have?
Do you have the time to dedicate to training and loving a new pet?
Do you have an appropriate place to keep your new pet?
Will you or a family member be around to walk your dog?
Can you feed them on a regular schedule?
Have you discussed the adoption with everyone you live with?
Have you discussed the adoption with your landlord if you rent your home?
Your pet can live up to 20 years. Will you be able to keep taking care of them for that duration?
Will the pet you’ve chosen get along with any other pets you already have?
Do you have children that the new pet might not be able to live with?
If you would like to talk about any of these considerations, please call us at 207/778-2638, and we may be able to help or at least give helpful advice!
