The adoption fee includes an examination by a shelter veterinarian, spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, tests for common illnesses, and flea/tick prevention. A.P.R. reserves the right to conduct a home check. You will be given a date to pick up your new pet once your adoption application has been approved. Often, breed rescue organizations will not ship a dog to you, so you may have to travel to see other dogs. There may be a long waiting list for some popular breeds. Then, an A.P.R. team member will contact you to schedule an appointment to meet the pet in person and see other pets that might be a great match.
If they are not adopted, they will remain in the shelter until they are adopted or for the rest of their lives. Since 1995, Shih Tzu Rescue, Inc. has offered small, medium, and large companion dogs for adoption. Despite being based in South Florida, they accept dogs from anywhere.
