Our adoptable dogs receive regular dewormings with Pyrantel and Panacur, at least two (2) DHPP (distemper/parvo)vaccine, rabies vaccine, are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and receive monthly heartworm preventive and flea treatment. Our adoptable cats are tested for Feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed, vaccinated with at least (2) FVRCP vaccines, rabies vaccine, spayed/neutered and receive monthly flea treatment. Puppies and kittens usually have a minimum of four (4) DHPP and FVRCP vaccinations. Food and boarding aren't factored in, but are certainly costs we bear.
Our adoption fees remain the same regardless of how much medical expense the dog has incurred. A recent parvo case in an adult dog resulted in an $800 veterinary bill, yet that dog was later adopted at our normal $175 adoption fee for an adult dog.
In other words, we take the words "non-profit" very seriously.
