Wags To Riches Adoption Program
AVDH has an in-house canine adoption program called Wags to Riches. This program has successfully placed over 67 dogs.
Adopting a dog from a shelter can be a challenge for three reasons. First, while living in a shelter, it is difficult to fully understand the traits and unique characteristics of each dog’s personality. Second, because of the stress and boredom of being in a kennel, behavior problems can develop. Lastly, dogs in shelters are more prone to infectious diseases.
Recognizing these challenges, we have developed a series of medical and behavioral examinations for each Wags to Riches Adoptee.
After candidates have passed through each examination, they are available for adoption. The $150 adoption fee includes all services listed to the right.
If you or someone you know is interested in adopting a special pet, ask to see our current Wags to Riches adoptee.
