PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
Forms can be found at the bottom of this page. Please print and complete before arriving for your appointment. If you are unable to do so beforehand, please come a few minutes early for your appointment and fill them out in your car with your pet.
If health records are available, please bring them or provide information on which veterinary office was used. If they are currently on any medications, please bring those as well.
Unfortunately senior pets (especially with health issues) do not adjust well to shelter life and there are limited resources to treat their ailments. For senior pets (cats 12 years + and dogs 8 years +), you may be asked to complete an owner requested euthanasia form in case this is the best option for the pet.
If the animal has any behavioral issues that may pose a safety risk to staff or potential adopters, you may be asked to euthanasia request form.
If your pet has bitten or scratched a human in the last 10 days, a quarantine fee may apply.
