Adoption Process and Animal Care Costs

So what exactly does it cost to "vet" a dog/cat prior to Adoption, compared to what you would pay at your own Vet?  At CiMAR, the dog or cat you will potentially adopt will get the treatments outlined in the sections below, prior to going home with you.  With our Adoption Fee, you will see what you get and how much this would cost if you were to goto your Vet for the same treatments.
