Enjoy these Aftercare tips and resources from Family Dog Rescue

Congratulations on adopting a Family Dog rescue! While they settle in as your new family member, we are here to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible. You may have checked off the new dog bed, the toys, and the treats, but what's next?

Transitional Health

Our top priority for your new family member is that they are happy and healthy. It is our goal to adopt out dogs that are deemed healthy, and always disclose any and all known medical conditions prior to adoption.

While we cannot help cover costs incurred at vets beyond what has been provided at the time of adoption, we are always happy to give guidance and direct you to helpful resources! It is common for dogs to experience symptoms such as diarrhea, lack of appetite, coughing/sneezing, etc during stressful transition times, but we are always happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
