First vet visit revealed Simon to have an issue with his trachea pressing on his spine requiring he wear a halter instead of any device which circles his neck in a restrictive manner. He also has a level 4 heart murmur. The resulting coughing is now controlled with daily medication of lasix (inexpensive medication) which removes the fluid from lungs and allows him to have a normal activity level.

Adoption policies/application procedures are detailed under All Adoptable Animals. Adoption of all dogs/cats requires an approval process to ensure that they are going into a home suitable for their needs and committed to their care and safety. Each is placed with same due diligence that they would be given if they were our own furry family members. Adopters who are not within the local area of the shelter MUST come to the shelter to transport their new family member home. Meeting approved adopters is one of the final steps in the adoption process. We do not permit transport or shipping of our residents without the adopter.
