Veterinarian Check Consent

Potential adopters who already have a companion animal or who have had a companion animal must consent to allow a L.A.R. representative to perform a check with your current veterinarian clinic. This is usually done via a phone call to the clinic. L.A.R. will be checking to ensure that your current animal(s) is up to date on all vaccines and heart worm preventative.

Because so many rescued animals have unknown medical histories, a quarantine period is recommended, in some cases, for animals that have been in rescue for less than two weeks. The date the animal arrived into the rescue will be disclosed upon request.

Adoption Fee:

As of 1/1/22 Puppies and Adult dogs are $495

Cats and kittens $150 (Unless otherwise noted)

No Refunds -- No cash refunds or charge credits will be given for returned animals after the adoption.
Please think about the adoption decision carefully and thoroughly!

Ownership Agreement - As the new owner, you agree to take full responsibility for the care and wellbeing of this pet for its lifetime. Once the adoption is finalized you will be responsible for all medical bills and decisions.
