will permit us to more effectively match your needs with a dog in our program.
Please fill out your
application completely. We need to know as much about you as possible so we can
make sure that you and your prospective new furry family member are well suited. The information you provide on your
application will help us determine the best possible match for both dog and adoptive family.
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 "Not Applicable" or "N/A".
Applicants must be at
least 18 years old or older.
volunteers/foster moms and dads work full time, have families, have pets, and a lives 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.
If you are going on
vacation soon, or do not know where you will be living in two years, NOW IS NOT THE TIME
TO ADOPT. Please get settled and then apply.
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.
