Vaccines for puppies and to represent less adoptable dogs at events with photo stands.
It allowed us to fully vaccinate litters of puppies to prepare them for adoption. It also allowed us to present less-adoptable dogs not suitable for adoption events at those events.

We rescued a litter of 13 puppies from a shelter in Alabama. Two days later, while in quarantine, one of them broke with parvo; we caught it immediately thanks to our HomeAgain TempScan chips that allow us to easily scan to take temperatures. We rushed that puppy to the vet, where he won a very hard-fought 10-day battle with parvo that cost $10,000 between our general practice vet and the University of Georgia, where he remained in the ICU for over a week. We feel strongly that being able to vaccinate the litter immediately gave them some initial immunity from the parvo — as we learned in Adoption Options — because none of the remaining 12 broke with it.
