  2. My sister just adopted a dog from your shelter. The dog had worms and was not up to date on his shots. She is now having to pay over $80.00 for all the dog's shots and worm medicine. The total cost of the dog will be $175.00. I have checked with other shelters in the area and their adoption fee includes all shots, worm medicine if there is signs of dog having worms, spay or neutered and chipped. Is this your normal policy? If so then she just got ripped off.

  3. We do not do any in shelter vaccinations. Our adoption fee covers only a Spay/neuter and rabies vaccination. Sadly, we do not have the funds available to cover the cost of routine vaccinations.
    If possible, we do try to deworm our animals. However, this is a process that must be repeated and is not a one-time fix. With so many animals coming into the shelter on a daily basis, it is hard to deworm them and keep them worm fee.
    I am very sorry for the excess that your sister had to pay, but we are not economically able to provide all of the animals their routine vaccinations.
