Post Adoption Resources

If your recently adopted pet is showing upper respiratory symptoms or surgery complications, you may bring your new pet to the shelter for an evaluation if it is within 10 days of adoption. The exam fee will be waived, and any medications and diagnostics will be charged to you at cost. Hours for this service are provided on Monday- Friday between 1pm-2:30pm. Complications outside of the said parameters and/or post 10 day adoption is the financial responsibility of the adopter.
