Based on a farm in Barrington Hills with Dr. Rykoff's "Ventur-On Farm Veterinary Clinic" Fur Keeps' rescued dogs, cats, and horses have the opportunity to receive the best medical care possible with unmatched supervision.
Each dog is
examined by a licensed veterinarian; vaccinated for Distemper, Rabies,
and Parvo; heartworm tested; micro-chipped; spayed/neutered; and
temperament tested. Cats and horses are given similar attention.
Additional medical procedures such as surgery and dental work are
provided as needed.
We're happy to say that one benefit of "farm life" is that our dogs are housed in roomy horse stalls with other like-minded (similar personality) dogs so that they can socialize, play, and sleep with friends instead of merely being placed in an isolated kennel. Another highlight that's enjoyed daily at Fur Keeps is getting exercise by running & playing in the indoor arena with fellow stall-mates!
Potential adopters must be at least 21 years of age, provide proof of identity, and complete our adoption screening process which includes:
Our adoption fee is $250 for dogs and $125 for cats which helps cover a portion of the animal's expenses while in our care.
