Hickory Hill Canine Rescue Adoption Application
We are committed to finding permanent, responsible, and loving homes for our rescue pets. Hickory Hill Canine Rescue reserves the right to adopt to homes it deems suitable for the pet based on the applicant’s history and factors including: temperament, family, lifestyle, yard and housing needs. Animals will not be adopted to anyone running a daycare program for children out of their home. All animals of age will be altered by Hickory Hill Canine Rescue before going to their new home. All animals must be altered by the age of 6 months by Virginia State Law. You must be at least 18 years old to adopt an animal. Please be aware that the adoption process may take a while and the adoption may not occur today. Home visits may be requested and follow-up visits may occur.
Hickory Hill Canine Rescue highly recommends flea control products available at your veterinarian. Dogs need to be on heartworm preventative all year long. Puppies and kittens need to be vaccinated every three weeks through 4 months of age in order to give them the protection they need to fight viruses. Adult dogs and cats should receive at least two vaccines--three weeks apart. Rabies vaccine is given after 4 months of age. Cats and dogs should be inoculated for rabies yearly. The first rabies vaccination is valid for one year. After that the rabies vaccine is good for three years. Please do not take your pet to public places until the proper inoculations have been given. By signing an adoption contract you promise Hickory Hill Canine Rescue that you will provide proper medical care for this pet. This includes yearly vaccinations, yearly heartworm testing, and heartworm preventative.
