All adoption fees include well-care checkup, spay/neuter, vaccinations (DHPP or DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordatella) and a microchip.
For puppies with a spay or neuter agreement, a microchip, and initial vaccinations. The adoptive family will be responsible for additional vaccines post-adoption. 
If your circumstance no longer allows for you to care for your adopted TPPR dog, we will take back the dog immediately with no judgement and no questions. Also, part of our adoption contract includes that you agree to not sell, trade, or give away this animal but in turn, return it to the rescue.
We expect you to contact us immediately if you can no longer care for this animal. 
Thank you for considering adopting!
