Thank you so very much for
taking the time to complete this rather lengthy adoption application.
will permit us to more effectively match your needs with a dog in our program. If you would prefer that we send you this questionnaire via email, please let
PLEASE READ BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER ***
Note: adoption donations are NON-REFUNDABLE, NO EXCEPTIONS
Please fill out your
application completely. We need to know as much about you as possible before we
consider allowing you to adopt one of our fur babies. The information you provide on your
application will help us determine the best possible match for you, as well as for the dog.
you do not fill out the application in FULL, or are not 100% truthful, your application
will be discarded without further notice. If a question does not apply to
you, fill in the blank with "N/A".
Applicants must be at
least 18 years old or older.
Most of our
volunteers/foster moms and dads work full time, have families, have pets, and a life of
their own, so please be patient. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
We require that all
animals in the prospective adoptive family be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on
vaccines, and on heartworm prevention. We feel that "responsible" pet owners
fit in this category.
We prefer homes with
fenced yards. While this is not necessarily a strict requirement, it is a serious
consideration when we are processing applications. If you meet all of our other
criteria, but don't have a fenced yard, we will process your application to see if we
may still have a match for your family. You must have a plan in place for exercise/potty
needs of the adopted dog.
We do not reserve dogs.
Even if you seem like the perfect match for a particular dog, we will not hold a dog in
a foster home to wait for you to get approved. It is not fair to the dog should another
family come along that is equally as well matched. We also will not hold on to a dog for
a period of time once you are approved. This is not fair to the dog, to the foster home,
or to another needy dog. We recommend that you get approved before you see a dog you
want so that when the right match comes along, you will be ready.
Keep in mind: Rescue dogs
need and deserve your patience. Whether it be house training, getting along with the
other pets or just settling in...be prepared. They will need time to adjust to
your home and family.
If you are going on vacation
or moving, please email your adoption application AFTER you return or when settled into your
new home. We are not able to house dogs until you return. That takes up space for
another life that could be saved.
Average process time for an
adoption application is roughly 1 to 5days. If you are approved, we will contact you by
telephone or email to schedule a meeting.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this application for
adoption. Your answers will permit us to more effectively match your needs with dogs in
