New Arrival Vetting

Once they have been vetted, they have 5 large play areas for exercise, professional grooming, 150 square foot run cooled with a fan, a comfy bed and a dog house. When inside, they have air-conditioned or heated room, with beds, radios and a television so they don’t get lonely while our volunteers are away. Our volunteers love spending quality time with each Dirks dog to socialize them and get to know them. This is so essential for finding them their perfect home!

There are countless stories our volunteers can share about their favorite Dirks Dog. We all have a number one passion to find the right furever home for our special critters. We pour our hearts and soul into their care. We have yet to find another rescue organization that will put the time and effort into providing the best possible healthcare for them. Here’s a list of what we do upon first rescuing a Dirks dog:

  1. Canine Influenza Virus & Booster Shot
  2. Bordetella For Canine Cough
  3. Fecal Examination
  4. Giardia Test
  5. AVID Chip
  6. Nexgard for Fleas / Ticks
  7. Interceptor for Heartworm Preventative
  8. Drontal Plus for Worms
  9. Rabies
  10. DA2PPL
  11. Physical – Ears Heart Lumps & Bumps
  12. 17 Panel Bloodwork
  13. 4DX Heartworm /Erlichia/Lymes Test
  14. CBC
  15. Spay / Neuter with Laser
  16. Thyroid Panel
  17. SDMA with 4DX

There are those time when our special Dirks dogs require additional care and we make sure that they have all they need for:

  1. Erlichia Positive – treated with Doxycycline
  2. Heartworm Positive
  3. Tick/Vector Real PCR w/o HW
  4. Dental Cleaning & Polishing
  5. EKG
  6. Parvo
