All animals are wormed monthly and receive their basic vaccinations and boosters while they are at the shelter awaiting adoption. Dogs are tested for heartworms and receive monthly heartworm prevention and cats are tested for Feline Leukemia, Feline AIDS, and heartworms before being made available for adoption. Additionally, all animals are microchipped before they go home with their adopters. Microchip registration is included at no cost to the adopter.
Most importantly, all animals are spayed or neutered prior to being released to adopters unless the animal is too young or too small for surgery. In these cases, adopters must sign an adoption agreement to have the animal spayed or neutered within a pre-established period of time. The same is true for rabies vaccinations. These services are included in the adoption fee and vouchers are provided. Any necessary medical care, with the exception of the spay, neuter, and rabies vaccination, after the animal is adopted, is the responsibility of the adopter.
The adoption fee is $100 and includes all of the above services. In the event an adoption does not work out, animals may be returned to Hurst Animal Services at any time. If an animal is returned within the first 10 days, a full refund will be provided. If the animal is returned between 11 and 30 days after adoption, a $25 refund will be given. After 30 days no refund will be provided, but the animal may always be returned to Hurst Animal Services.
