One of the biggest challenges Tombstone Small Animal Shelter faces each year is to make sure every pet guest that comes to the shelter gets veterinary care. That they are in the best of health, to our knowledge, before going to their new homes. Not everything can be tested for, but we try. Every cat/kitten or litter mate is tested for feline leukemia and feline aides. They are given all age appropriate vaccinations, de-wormed, de-flead if age appropriate, spayed/neutered and micro chipped before going home. Each dog/puppy is de-wormed, de-flead if age appropriate, vaccinated, spayed/neutered and micro chipped before going home. All pets have dentals if recommended by their vets, given medication for ear infections, eye infections, ring worm, etc. We had two cats give birth to kittens in the shelter . One had a whopping 7 kittens. Sometimes with all our care we lose one of the precious ones. This year we have been lucky and only lost one newborn kitten. But it still is devastating. Every single pet guest at the shelter is like our very own. We want you, the adopter to have the healthiest, happiest pet to take home. But in order to accomplish this we need funds. That's where you, the donor comes in. Now is a great time to help! We continue to work with the local community regarding spay/neuter of their pets. Providing assistance when needed. Thank you for all your continued support. It's believers like you that allow us to continue what we do! We currently have a 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency on Guidestar.com, and you can also see all our statistics on shelteranimalscount.org.
