Following the importation of a rabid puppy into Vermont and in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season when many Vermonters may be taking steps to add new animal members to their families, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Veterinary Medical Association urge Vermonters to exercise due diligence when adopting a new dog or cat. There are steps that Vermonters can take to help ensure the animal they are adopting is healthy and the adoption organization with which they are working is compliant with Vermont law. Paying close attention to these details can increase the likelihood that adopted pets will bring many years of enjoyment to Vermont families.*Training classes included in adoption fees must begin with the next available cycle of classes. Adopters from outside the Central Vermont area may seek refunds of the additional cost ($100) after showing evidence that the dog has successfully completed a positive-reinforcement based training class elsewhere.“These measures increase the likelihood that the new pet is not carrying a contagious disease that could be dangerous to humans or other animals in the household,” said Robert Johnson, DVM, of the Health Department. “Vermonters are also strongly urged to only adopt animals that they have been able to meet in person prior to the adoption. Purchasing a dog or cat off of the internet, sight unseen, is a risky practice and makes it very difficult to determine the animal’s health status and behavioral characteristics, both of which are critical to integrating a new dog or cat into a family.”Vermont is the first state to be included in this gigantic weekend adoption event to place all of our dogs and cats in qualified homes. Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at the following locations:
