Pet Adoption Application

 


Pet Interested in:
Today's Date:
 

Pet ownership is a serious responsibility.  This policy of the adoption group is to assure that each person who adopts a pet is aware of the responsibility, and that each is capable and willing to accept that responsibility morally, physically, and financially.

 

It is quite true that not everyone who desires to own a pet should have a pet.
 
The following questionnaire has been designed to aid both you and the adoption group in deciding if you and/or your family is indeed at this moment adequately prepared to assume the type of responsible ownership which we are endeavoring to assure for our adoption animals.

 

 Please be sure to answer all questions and feel free to add your own comments.  If a question does not apply, write N/A.
