What is the cost to adopt a dog and what is included?
The total purchase price for a dog will vary depending on the dog's age and a spay/neuter fee. All dogs receive an ID Microchip, an application of Advantage flea treatment, deworming, and vaccinations that protect them from Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Bordatella and Rabies. Dogs over 4-months of age also receive a one-year license if the dog will reside within Orange County’s licensing jurisdiction. The spay/neuter fee is also included.
OC Animal Care strongly supports pet sterilization. Spayed females are normally healthier, live longer, and do not come into heat, which attracts un-neutered males to your property. Neutered males are better companion animals. Additional benefits include a reduced risk of cancer and a substantial reduction in your pet license fee.
