This form of identification is implanted just under the skin for permanent identification of your pet. This is not a GPS tracker and does not function with location monitoring. Your information as the registered owner will be attached to the microchip so that if your pet is found without you, we may be able to reunite you. Any pet over 4 weeks old can be microchipped and current County of Kaua`i legislation requires all pets over 3 months of age to have a microchip.

MOM & PUPS PACKAGE

Kaua`i Humane Society (KHS) takes in thousands of homeless animals a year and believes the best way to decrease the homeless pet population is through spay and neuter. However, KHS also recognizes that not every pet owner may be ready to spay and neuter at this time and may also be considering breeding their beloved canine.

KHS would like to assist new breeders by offering medical help that will not only keep the puppies healthy, but also the mother dog.

Best Breeding Practices:

  • Wait to breed until the female dog has had at least two estrus (aka heat) cycles
  • Have the first litter before the age of five
  • Skip at least one estrus cycle between breeding
  • Do not breed more than four times

Things to keep in mind when breeding:

  • A dog is pregnant for approximately 63 days
  • Breed with another dog that balances your dog’s flaws (look at behavior and health)
  • Provide additional food for the mom while she is nursing
  • Identify a quiet and clean space for the mother dog to nurse
  • Be prepared to feed puppies if the mother dog won’t (do not give cow milk)
  • Have a plan for all the puppies that are born (that does not include surrendering them)
  • Keep puppies with mother and siblings till eight weeks of age
  • Be prepared for the increase in medical costs for raising puppies
  • Dogs are individuals and “like father, like son” does not necessarily always apply

How KHS will help:

  • $20 health exam for the mother dog to determine health and counsel on pregnancy
    • Exam fee waived if medical care is needed
  • Free puppy exam at 8 weeks of age
  • 50% off dewormer and first vaccine for puppies at 8 weeks of age
  • $25 spay/neuter for any or all of the puppies

*Optional free spay of the mother dog after her first litter

Breeding is time consuming, costly, and occasionally heartbreaking. Let us help you with your purposeful and responsible breeding.
