Congratulations on your new family member! Now that you have taken your new pet home we have some recommendations to keep the whole family healthy and happy.


Check out our cheat sheets below to set you and your new companion up for success!


The diet of your pet is very important to its health and wellbeing. Keeping your pet on a feeding schedule is recommended. Some food brands we recommend from the BX/PX and commissary include:

• Science diet 
• Nature’s Balance
• Purina One (cat food)
• Purina Friskies (cat wet food)


It may take some time for your pet to get used to its new environment and rules. Be patient and consistent. Positive reinforcement, treats, a spray bottle, a firm voice, and extra love are great tools for helping your pet understand some new rules.


Highly recommended: 

-Keep vaccinations up to date


-Regular Parasite treatment (Heartworm and Intestinal, Ticks and Fleas)

 Transfer records to your name at the veterinarian office on and/or off base; this includes, but is not limited to, rabies certificate, vaccination records, and microchip information.

Different bases require different medical care for your animals; please check with your local Veterinary Treatment Facility about their regulations.

Please register your new animal companion on base at the veterinarian office!

Again, congratulations, and thank you for choosing to adopt and rescue with Homeward Bound Osan. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone, email, or Facebook message.
