Adoption Package: Valued at $300

Spay/Neuter Surgery - All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption if old enough and in good health. Minimum Value $75

Heartworm Testing - All dogs (6 months and older) are tested for heartworm before adoption. Minimum Value $20 

Canine Vaccinations - All dogs are vaccinated against Parvovirus, Distemper, Adenovirus type 2, Parainfluenza, Leptospirosis, and Coronavirus.

24 PetWatch Microchip - All dogs are microchipped for permanent identification. A microchip is a device about the size of a grain of rice that is implanted between the shoulder blades. The microchip is not a tracking device, but upon scanning, the microchip will provide a unique identification number (similar to a Social Security number for humans) that can be used to retrieve the owner's information. Minimum Value $50

One month of Frontline - Topical flea, flea egg, and tick preventative. Minimum Value $10

One month of Heartgard - Chewable heartworm preventative. Minimum Value $10

Wellness check with OLHS-affiliated Veterinarian - Since OLHS does not have a veterinarian on staff, we provide each adopter with an initial wellness check with any of our affiliated veterinarians. New owner must bring adoption paperwork to the veterinarian in order to receive the complimentary exam. Minimum Value $40

One month of ShelterCare Pet Insurance - Since OLHS cannot guarantee the health of any of our adopted animals, we offer every adopter with one month of ShelterCare Pet Insurance. Upon adoption, the new owner must confirm an e-mail with the gift of insurance. Once the owner activates the insurance, the pet is covered up to $750 of illness/injury in that first month. The owner may extend coverage after the one month trial if he/she chooses. Minimum Value $20

Adoption Contract 

After your adoption application is approved, the adoption counselor will schedule an adoption appointment. You will be required to sign an adoption contract. Please familiarize yourself with the contract in case you have any questions prior to signing it.
