This may include a physical exam, certain vaccinations, flea and tick treatment and any necessary medications.

Safety & Security


While in our care, your pets will be housed in a safe and secure location with daily interaction. All information regarding the custody of your pet is kept completely confidential. You will receive regular updates on the well-being of your pets throughout the custody period. After this time, you will be reunited with your pets in your new home.
