Every dog that is available for adoption has been tested for heartworms, temperament tested, received a rabies vaccine and microchip. They have also been given DAPPV (protecting against distemper, andenovirus, parvovirus, and parainfluzena), Bordetella (protecting against doggie cold/kennel cough), dewormer, flea control, and heartworm preventive. Every adoption also includes spay or neuter. If you are adopting an intact puppy, we will ask that you pay a refundable, $85 deposit, and that you bring the puppy back to WCAC to get spayed or neutered.
Every cat that is available for adoption has been tested for FIV (Feline AIDS) and FELV (Feline Leukemia), given a microchip and a rabies shot. They have also received FVRCP (protecting against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia), dewormer, and flea control. If you are adopting an intact kitten, we ask that you pay a refundable, $50 deposit, and that you bring the kitten back to WCAC to get spayed or neutered
If the animal is on medication at the time of adoption, the rest of the prescribed dose will be given to the adopter. After the remainder medication is given, we suggest you take the pet to your vet for a checkup.
Once the adopted animal has left the building, all medical care must be provided at the adopter’s veterinarian. The front desk staff will provide all medical records at the time of adoption.
