All of our adoptable pets are microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed and neutered before going to their forever homes. In addition to that, we also offer low-cost vaccinations for the public! Vaccinating your pets helps to prevent them from getting deadly diseases or reduces the intensity of their symptoms if they do contract something. Learn more about pricing and why you should vaccinate below.

Vaccinating your dogs and cats whenever they're needed next is important in preventing diseases, especially in young kittens and puppies! Vaccinations are administered by a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and paperwork is provided after you get your animal vaccinated! Unfortunately, we do not offer rabies vaccinations at our shelter, but you can get a rabies vaccine from your private veterinarian.

DHPP (distemper, adenovirus 2 (hepatitis), parvovirus, parainfluenza) - $22
Bordatella Vaccination (kennel cough) - $18

Please look online for resources and guidelines as to how often you should vaccinate and at what times, especially for younger animals.
1. What are vaccines?
Vaccines are health products that cause your pet's immune system to build up antibodies that can fight off diseases in the future. Vaccines help reduce the severity of future diseases and can even prevent them.
2. Why should I vaccinate?
Vaccinating your pets can help prevent them from contracting highly contagious and even deadly diseases that can easily be prevented by these vaccinations that are available to them. Vaccinating is especially important for puppies and kittens that are exposed to other animals when they're young because they haven't built strong immune systems yet. Vaccinating from our shelter also helps us fund spay and neuter initiatives and other projects.
3. Doesn't a veterinarian have to administer vaccines and microchips?
No, vaccinations are very easy to administer and are nearly painless because dogs and cats have thicker skin than we do. Veterinary offices typically have RVTs (registered veterinary technicians) and veterinary assistants administer vaccinations and microchips. Rabies shots are the only vaccinations that are required by law that veterinarians perform, and we don't provide them at our shelter.
4. Do I need to live in a certain county to vaccinate or microchip my pets from you?
No, you could be from a completely different state and we'll be able to vaccinate and microchip your pet for you!
