Sometimes, adoption fees don’t cover all of the expenses incurred by a dog while in the care of Carolina Hearts. Unfortunately, many of our dogs and puppies come from less-than-sanitary shelters and suffer from bacterial infections and parasites. Adult Aussies can have heartworms (all too common in the South), kennel cough, upper respiratory infections, and other ailments. The average costs of general vetting (just a checkup, vaccines, heartworm test, and spay or neuter) range from $150-200. This cost doesn’t include medications, monthly preventatives, microchips, and other supplies.
