Richland Pet Adoption Made Easy
When you adopt a pet, you've added a new member to your family. You have a new long term companion. Naturally you want everything to go smoothly with your new best friend and so does VCA. After taking care of thousands of dogs and cats, we know what it takes and our hospital teams are here to help you.
Bring your newly adopted pet to a VCA Animal Hospital and receive a free initial check up right away. Our experienced veterinarian will check your pet's vital organs, look for fleas, ticks and external parasites and provide you with expert recommendations. Give your pet the best start in life. A healthy start.
Introducing a new pet to kids is always memorable. To make it a memory you cherish, talk with any small children about proper care and handling. Go over the importance of respect and how a pet needs to sleep and eat undisturbed. They're family now.
There’s something special about adopting a pet from a local shelter or rescue. VCA understands this and partners with animal organizations across the country in an effort to increase pet adoption. One less animal in a shelter is one more victory for mankind.
It's equally as important to consider any current pets you may have. The ability of pets to get along together in the same household depends on their individual personalities. Wise handling of the "getting acquainted" period is an important factor in the successful introduction of a new pet.
