2. 'After surgery pain medicine' is optional, at $5. This must be paid prior to your pet's transport to the surgical center.
RCAS is Mandated to Abide by Alabama State Law for all Adopted Pets:
Shelters are not allowed to adopt animals out for the purpose of breeding, and in fact all adopted dogs and cats must be either spayed or neutered within 90 days of the adoption. The exception is if you adopt a puppy or kitten that is less than 6 months of age; in which case that animal needs to have surgery done by six months of age. Having your new family friend spayed or neutered insures that there are no unwanted litters and it greatly reduces the possibility of your treasured pet from wandering off and getting lost. We are required to keep a close update on all adopted animals to insure compliance with this Law.
About once a month we send our and your animals to the Alabama Spay/Neuter clinic in Irondale, AL. to get 'snipped' ie altered. Please contact our Transport Director for advance reservations, to assure your pet's space. Prepayment is required. 35 dogs and cats went on this March 2016 transport shown below;

RCAS adopted dogs and cats are generally spayed at our local Vet in Ashland as part of their adoption fee, but you may inquire about your options from our staff or our Transport Director.
Canine DNA Testing: learn your dog’s genetic background. An additional benefit; some dogs can not take certain medicines, and it could tell you that, too.
Get your home swab kit at RCAS for $65. It takes a while for return results by mail.
Microchipping pets: Your Vet inserts a small chip under the shoulder skin and it should not cause any comfort issue for your pet. You then list your pet with the national registry base. Most Vet's have chip scanners and will perform a chip scan for found animals, at no charge. If your pet roams or could be a flight risk due to fireworks, an open gate/door, or car escape, you have a chance to help your pet get home. About $30 cost, immeasurable value for peace of mind.
