CCRC has done everything possible to make sure our dogs are healthy at the time of adoption. We provide standard dewormings, spay/neuter, give all age-appropriate shots, and we treat any known illness. If we know of any ongoing issues, we disclose it.
However, more times than not we do not know our dogs vet history prior to CCRC. Because of this we wanted to provide a way for our dogs to have one final check after they left us. To meet this need, we offer our adopters a free vet visit with one of our vet partners within one week of adoption.
During the free vet visit, the vet will do an exam and a fecal test, all billed to CCRC. If something routine (i.e. worms or kennel cough) shows up at that exam, the vet will provide treatment at CCRC's expense. If something major is found, we ask that you call us to discuss options. We are not responsible for costs that are not approved in advance, please refer to the Vet Authorization form found in your green adoption folder for more detail.
We have worked hard to develop relationships with specific vets who offer discounted rates to us. Thanks to out vet partners, we are able to treat hundreds of dogs we rescue every year, while also doing everything possible to make sure our adopters start out with a healthy dog. For that reason, we ONLY cover costs for free vet visits with one of our approved vet partners.
If you go to an unauthorized vet or an emergency vet without prior authorization from CCRC we cannot be held responsible for the cost.
We are very grateful to the vets that work with CCRC to provide these discounted services, consider thanking them for all they do to help us when you go in for your free visit!
