All Military and Non Military are welcome to view the animals and able to adopt from the facility.
What To Do If Adopting
Once you have viewed the animals and desire to adopt, you will be required to fill out an Adoption Agreement and must go to the Fort Polk Veterinary Treatment Facility with the animal to start the process of adoption. You will be required to fill out a Registration Packet, which starts the medical file on the pet. The staff will then vaccinate, deworm and microchip your new pet. If you are a military member (retired, or hold valid DoD ID card) of the community you then may bring your animal back in for follow-up appts such as vaccinations, spaying or neutering and minor sickcall. If you are a civilian (non-military) you then have to make followup appointments with your own personal Veterinarian for follow-up care. At the adoption, all dogs and cats are given vaccines, also tested for heartworms and tested for the feline leuk/aids virus for appropriate age requirements.
If you can't adopt but would like to contribute to our strays you may do so by making a donation at the clinic or stray facility this will help give the strays some extra days at the kennels and help get others into a rescue. donations cover their vaccines and boarding/feeding needs
For more details you may call 337-531-1323 or come into the Vet Clinic with your questions. Please remember animals are not kept at the Vet Clinic .
