Every cat and dog adopted from Humane Pennsylvania partner shelters receives our exclusive 30 Day Adoption Health Supplement.

This pro­vides your pet cov­er­age for a wide vari­ety of com­mon canine and feline ill­nesses. Our goal is to pro­vide you and your pet with the best pos­si­ble health care and to avoid adop­tion returns due to sim­ple and treat­able ill­nesses. Please refer to com­plete details and lim­i­ta­tions to this pro­gram below.


Within the first 30 days after adop­tion, Humane Veterinary Hospitals – Reading will pro­vide your first visit for $60 off of your bill. If one of the ill­nesses below is diag­nosed by our vets, HVH will provide discounted treat­ment, for the first 30 days fol­low­ing your adoption:

  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Ear and eye infections
  • Infectious Tracheobronchitis (Kennel Cough)
  • Suture removal
  • Vomiting of infectious origin (excluding Parvo)
  • Diarrhea of infectious origin (excluding Parvo)
  • Intestinal parasites

Dis­eases and con­di­tions that are excluded: Con­gen­i­tal and inher­ited dis­eases or con­di­tions are not cov­ered, nor are undi­ag­nosed pre-existing con­di­tions or con­di­tions spec­i­fied in an adop­tion health waiver. No cov­er­age for the treat­ment of FIP, Feline Leukemia, FIV, Par­vovirus, Dis­tem­per or Hepati­tis will be pro­vided. No other ani­mal in an owner’s house will be cov­ered if they catch an ill­ness or dis­ease from the new pet.

Testing and Treatments will be billed as follows: Follow up office visits pursuant to covered illness will be complimentary. All testing/diagnostics will be discounted by 25% at the first appointment only. Medications (for covered illnesses only) will be billed at 50%.

NOTE: You may also choose to use your own vet­eri­nar­ian. A med­ical form list­ing vac­ci­na­tions and worm­ing is issued at the time of adop­tion. Your new pet may be required to see a vet­eri­nar­ian within 30 days of adop­tion. Your vet­eri­nar­ian will pro­vide all ser­vices at your expense. Even if you have cho­sen to use your own vet, in the event of ill­nesses cov­ered under the 30 Day Health Supplement, you may still con­tact HVH to arrange care. Humane Pennsylvania will not assume charges for any treat­ment of any con­di­tion, ill­ness or emer­gency at any time by any other veterinarian.

In addition, these additional services may be purchased at the time of adoption:

  • Leash and Collar
  • Cat Carrier (a cat carrier is required)
