General medical treatment and services provided to our animals:
All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered prior to adoption
All animals receive a rabies vaccine if age appropriate
Puppies receive their first set of shots
Dogs receive their basic vaccines
Kittens receive 2 to 3 FVRCP (distemper)vaccines
Adult Cats receive 1 FVRCP (distemper) vaccine
General health and behavior screening
Cats are tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV
Dogs and Cats are de-wormed but additional fecal screening is highly recommended post adoption
Cats are treated for intestinal parasites, fleas, ticks and ear mites*
Dogs are treated with flea meds if needed
All of our pets are implanted with a Home Again brand micro-chip prior to adoption
We provide a Rescue Code so you may register your pet's micro-chip with Home Again at a reduced cost
Since we take in many injured and sick cats and dogs, we treat all animals to be sure they are pain-free, comfortable and stabilized by providing surgery or special veterinary care.
Ear mites, worms and intestinal parasites are common in kittens and cats and may take extended time to eradicate post adoption. We cannot guarantee that your cat or kitten will be completely worm/parasite free at adoption. Fecal samples must be taken to your first mandatory vet appointment for a re-check.
*PLEASE NOTE: Our Mission is SPAY and NEUTER therefore we will verify that all pets in your home are spayed or neutered. Exceptions to this policy would be due to age or a medical reason supported by your veterinarian. We do not adopt to breeders or any home with un-altered animals.
PLEASE BE SURE YOUR CURRENT PETS ARE UP TO DATE ON VACCINES FOR THEIR SAFETY AND FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR NEW PET!
We ask for your patience as we review and process your adoption application as we are an all-volunteer organization. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, please allow up to two weeks to contact you, although most applicants are contacted within a few days. We also try to keep adoptions local and try to adopt out no more than 2 hours away from Harrisburg, PA, but the decision is ultimately up to the foster parent. Thank you!
Even if you do not find the new member of your family that you are seeking with us, we always encourage people to adopt from a rescue or shelter rather than a pet store. Pet stores source dogs from commercial breeders. Please educate yourself!
