What’s the timeline for vetting my foster animal?

Once the animal arrives in the foster home, the Foster Medical Manager will reach out to fosters and get them scheduled for vetting as soon as possible. The goal is to try to get surgery done within two weeks of intake but sometimes it is 3-4 weeks. If surgery is scheduled further out, then the Foster Medical Manager will arrange for the foster animal to go into Princeton or go to RSR partner clinic for initial intake vetting.
