How We Prepare Your Dog

Our adoption policy requires that puppies over the age of six (6) months be spayed or neutered before they are adopted. Puppies who are under the age of six (6) months must have the procedure performed as recommended by adopter's veternarian.  Adoptions are not final until your dog is altered and we reserve the  right to confiscate the dog if these terms are not met.

If the surgery is done by one of our vets, the cost is covered in the adoption fee. Post-adoption transportation to/ from the vet is the responsibility of the new family. 

Standard medical procedures for puppies under the age of 4 months:

  • DAPP (given every 2-3 weeks depending on age)

  • Bordetella vaccine

  • 5-day course of Panacur dewormer, with a second course if needed

  • Marquis paste on intake and weekly as needed

  • Flea preventative

  • Any other meds as needed

Standard medical procedures for puppies over 4 months and adult dogs:

  • DAPP

  • Bordetella

  • De-wormer

  • HW test (if over 6 months)

  • HW preventative

  • Spay/Neuter

  • Flea preventative

  • Microchip

Adoption Fees

The adoption fee varies depending on the particular dog or puppy.  The adoption fees  help MAMAs to continue to save lives. We are always grateful for additional donations to cover our costs or to help another dog receive the medical care he or she needs in order to be adoptable.
