.

I adopted a well cared for Jack Russel,she came with up to date
shots,spayed and micro-chip,all for $85. She had a slight case
of kennel cough, which I was given a 10 day prescription, she
cleared up just fine. She is a very loveable and sweet dog.
The staff at the kennel are very passionate and caring.The
adoption corrdiantor "Pam", is very nice and helpful. She
seemed to take much Pride and Care in her job. She really
made me feel comfortable about adoption a shelter dog.
I will recommend this shelter to my friends and family. My next
pet will certainly be a shelter or rescure pet. Thanks for helping
me with my adoption process. "Mia" brings much joy to my
families lifes everyday.

Why Challenge Current Rabies Vaccine Policy?

Rabies vaccination is required by law in nearly all areas. Even though protection from rabies is documented to last at least three years, current law in some states or areas still requires that boosters be given annually or biannually rather than the standard policy of every three years. However, vaccination against rabies virus is occasionally associated with debilitating adverse effects. According to the CDC domestic animals account for less than 10% of the reported rabies cases, with cats, cattle, and dogs most often reported rabid.

Scientific data indicate that vaccinating dogs against rabies every three years, as most states require, is unnecessary. Studies have shown the duration of protective immunity as measured by serum antibody titers against rabies virus to persist for seven years post-vaccination. By validating the 'true' life of rabies virus immunity and moving to five and hopefully seven years, we will decrease the risk of adverse reactions in our animals and minimize their repeated exposure to foreign substances.

Killed vaccines like those for rabies virus can trigger immediate and delayed adverse vaccine reactions (termed "vaccinosis") While there may be immediate hypersensitivity reactions, other acute events tend to occur 24-72 hours afterwards, or up to 45 days later in the case of delayed reactions. Reactions that have been documented include:

Behavior changes such as aggression and separation anxiety
Obsessive behavior,self-mutilation, tail chewing
Pica - eating wood, stones, earth, stool
Destructive behavior, shredding bedding
Seizures, epilepsy
Fibrosarcomas at injection site
Autoimmune diseases such as those affecting bone marrow and blood cells, joints, eyes, skin, kidney, liver, bowel, and central nervous system.
Muscular weakness and or atrophy
Chronic digestive problems

I volunteered at their facility several years ago. I was very impressed with their facility especially the cat area. It was clean, open and full of toys and various areas where potential adopters could play and learn about the cat or kitten.

Fulton Animal Services is like any other animal shelter. They're smaller and keep the amicable dogs in groups per kennel. They have two empty kennels that people can go in to play with dogs that they may select.

I adopted a puppy here. She was spayed and we picked her up 2 days later. Adoption is $85 and includes current vaccinations, spaying/neutering, microchipping, and some food.

When we brought her home, we found that she had kennel cough, but she didn't show any signs of it while she was in the shelter so it's not their fault.

PROS: Good value
CONS: Small selection of dogs
