Every cat and dog adopted from Humane Pennsylvania partner shelters (HPA) receives our exclusive 30 Day Adoption Health Supplement.
This provides your pet coverage for a wide variety of common canine and feline illnesses. Our goal is to provide you and your pet with the best possible health care and to avoid adoption returns due to simple and treatable illnesses. Please refer to complete details and limitations to this program below.
Within the first 30 days after adoption, Humane Veterinary Hospitals of Reading & Lancaster (HVH) will provide your first visit for $44.00 off of your bill. If one of the illnesses below is diagnosed by our vets, HVH will provide discounted treatment, for the first 30 days following your adoption:
- Upper respiratory infections
- Ear and eye infections
- Infectious Tracheobronchitis (Kennel Cough)
- Suture removal
- Vomiting of infectious origin (excluding Parvo)
- Diarrhea of infectious origin (excluding Parvo)
- Intestinal parasites
Diseases and conditions that are excluded: Congenital and inherited diseases or conditions are not covered, nor are undiagnosed pre-existing conditions or conditions specified in an adoption health waiver. No coverage for the treatment of FIP, Feline Leukemia, FIV, Parvovirus, Distemper or Hepatitis will be provided. No other animal in an owner’s house will be covered if they catch an illness or disease from the new pet.
Testing and Treatments will be billed as follows: Follow up office visits pursuant to covered illness will be complimentary. All testing/diagnostics will be discounted by 25% at the first appointment only. Medications (for covered illnesses only) will be billed at 50%.
NOTE: You may also choose to use your own veterinarian. A medical form listing vaccinations and worming is issued at the time of adoption. Your new pet may be required to see a veterinarian within 30 days of adoption. Your veterinarian will provide all services at your expense. Even if you have chosen to use your own vet, in the event of illnesses covered under the 30 Day Health Supplement, you may still contact HVH to arrange care. Humane Pennsylvania will not assume charges for any treatment of any condition, illness or emergency at any time by any other veterinarian.
In addition, these additional services may be purchased at the time of adoption:
- Leash and Collar
- Cat Carrier (a cat carrier is required)
- Small animal supplies
