All Scotties entering the Rescue Program are responsibly cared for, which includes:
- Full medical checkups from a licensed veterinarian
- Spaying and neutering
- Updated vaccinations
In cases where more extensive veterinary care is indicated, the Scotties receive whatever care is deemed necessary for treatable conditions. Our cost to care for a rescued Scottie averages more than $740, but the companionship of a loving Scottie is well worth the cost.
Each Scottie is placed in their own dedicated and caring volunteer foster home. This allows them to feel loved and secure while being evaluated for behavior and temperament. Foster caregivers are at the core of our program. Their assessment of and experience with the dogs in their care help make the transition of the rescued Scottie easier for both dog and adoption family.
Despite the extensive vet and fostering costs, our adoption fee is reasonable. We may waive a portion of this fee depending on the Scottie’s age and health.
