**Adopting a pet from The Humane Society of Central Texas may cost more than the initial adoption fee. Food, veterinary care and unforeseen medical issues are just a few challenges new pet owners face. Upon arrival to The Humane Society of Central Texas / City of Waco Animal Services animals are thoroughly examined by City of Waco Animal Services Animal Technicians.
Animals are continuously monitored; however, it is possible for an animal to be incubating a disease or infection, while showing no signs or symptoms. For this reason, we suggest you take your newly adopted pet to your vet for a check up. At the time of the adoption, the adopter takes full responsibility for all known and unknown medical and behavioral issues and not hold The Humane Society of Central Texas or the City of Waco Animal Services, its agents, servant, or employees responsible for any expenses or damages that are incurred on behalf of this animal.
