Free Veterinary Exam

We recommend that you take your new family member to a veterinarian for an initial health exam. Through cooperation with the San Diego County Veterinary Medical Association, any animal adopted from our shelter will be given a free physical exam within ten (10) days of adoption. However, this exam does not include any treatments or vaccinations.

At Rancho Coastal Humane Society, we’re always here to help answer any questions, but your new pet’s medical care is now your responsibility.
