Underage kittens and puppies are required to be seen every two weeks from 4 to 16 weeks of age by foster office staff. When you pick up your foster pet(s), you will be given a follow-up due date so that you can schedule an appointment or plan to attend a wellness clinic. These visits are required for the safety and health of JHS foster animals.
During peak kitten season, the foster office will offer walk-in wellness clinics for routine preventative care including an updated weight, vaccine, deworming, microchip and flea/heartworm preventative. Walk-in wellness clinics are only available on weekends from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Wellness clinics are now located in our Pet Help Center. When you arrive at JHS, please look for the entrance labelled Pet Help Center.
If you are unable to attend a walk-in wellness clinic, please schedule an appointment online at bit.ly/jhsfosterappt. Please be advised that appointments book very quickly during peak season (May-October) and attending a scheduled wellness clinic is preferred for routine care. This will allow for available appointment times for urgent illness/injury visits.
Remember: Schedule your appointment in advance and please arrive on time. If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please refer to the link provided in the appointment confirmation email to cancel or reschedule the appointment. This allows the appointment time to be made available to another foster pet in need.
