Services for Shelter Animals
Our excellent veterinary staff is dedicated to the care of our shelter animals. Our animals receive testing, innoculations, spaying or neutering, and when required, specialized medical care. We do not provide veterinary treatment for non-shelter animals and we recommend that every pet owner obtain the regular services of a professional veterinarian.


Rabies and Microchipping
Several times a year we offer rabies vaccinations and microchipsto the public. The rabies vaccination is $15 and the microchip cost is $25. In order to receive a rabies vaccination that is valid for 3 years, proof of a previous vaccination must be provided. Dogs must be on leash and cats must be in carriers. Microchip registration is the best way to locate lost dogs and cats.
