Wellness Visit

Before we transport kitties or puppies to the states for either adoption or foster care, we take them to a vet in Aruba for a check-up in order to receive a health certificate. They can fly when they’ve had at least 1 vaccination and are micro-chipped. The vet also de-worms them before leaving the island.  The health certificate is required by both the airlines and U.S. customs.

Our Adoptable Animals

You can also visit our Facebook page to see updates about the cats and dogs from Aruba that are available for adoption.

All puppies have their age-appropriate vaccinations, are dewormed, and micro-chipped. Adopters are responsible for spay/neutering when their puppy is old enough for this procedure.
