As an open-admission shelter, most of the pets that come to us are strays. Meaning we have limited background history on the pet, such as health, behavioral or living history. Because of this, it is always a possibility with adopting that your pet may have contracted an illness before arriving at our center, and has not begun to show symptoms. Many animal diseases do not show symptoms until weeks or sometimes months after they have been contracted. This is why we always encourage new adoptive parents to ensure their current pets are up-to-date on core vaccines and follow up with your veterinarian within 10 days of adopting.
