Sheltered Start

Sheltered Start Program – COMING SOON
SparKy would like to announce a brand new program to benefit the community called Sheltered Start. The program is for someone who has a pregnant dog or recent litter and wants to surrender the pups, have the mother spayed, and ensure the health of all animals involved. SparKy will work with you through the process to ensure a smooth transition. All puppies cared for by SparKy receive a thorough vet exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing, and treatment if needed, parasite control, as well as treatment for any illness that they might have. They will also be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Owners must fill out the application below to be considered for the program.

To be considered, the owner must:

Be 21 years of age or older. (Ages 18 -21 are considered on a case-to-case basis.)
Have identification showing your current address.
Be able and willing to spend the time necessary to provide proper care for the animal during pregnancy.
Be able and willing to take the animal to the vet for routine and emergency vet care.
Be willing to surrender all puppies from the litter to SparKy for vetting and adoption.
Be willing to have the mother dog of this litter spayed as soon as the vet recommends it’s safe.
