Adopt-A-Pet does not euthanize animals to make room for others, so an active adoption program is very important.
For each animal we adopt, one more can be rescued.
Most of our animals come from the Victoria City/County Animal Shelter although some are strays or owner released animals. All of our pets pass a strict health check and are started on the necessities during their stay.
Dogs are spayed/neutered before being adopted and each dog is given a topical flea prevention. They are microchipped, dewormed and receive two (or more) Distemper/Parvo vaccinations. Their rabies vaccination is also given. All dogs are tested for heartworms and are started on a monthly heartworm preventative program. Dogs that are found to be heartworm positive are put through heartworm treatment during their time at our shelter.
Cats are also spayed/neutered before being adopted, and are tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS (a cat strain, not related to human AIDS) and are given two (or more) Distemper/Leukemia vaccinations. All cats have a topical flea prevention applied and are microchipped. They are also dewormed and are given their rabies vaccination.
