PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!
Thank you for taking the time to fill out our questionnaire. The purpose of this application is to learn a little about your family and home so our organization can make the best possible match for both you and our rescue animal. Our main concern is placing our animals in a compatible home with a family that will give them a LIFETIME commitment of love and proper care. This consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the best interest of both the animal and the adopter. Please be aware that while completing this application does not bind you to adopt one of our animals, neither does it guarantee that we will place one of our animals in your home at this time. If you are interested in learning more about one of our shelter animals, please answer the questions honestly and thoroughly.
Some animals may need extra time and patience to adjust to yet another new home. Some may need house training or other types of training and some may just need a little extra time and understanding. All animals regardless of their background and history go through an adjustment period when they go into a new environment. There will be a period of a few days, weeks or in some cases months during which your new pet’s personality is emerging and growing while you get to know one another. Please remember that this is a stressful time for an animal and hopefully we will be able to work together to make this a lifetime relationship for you and your rescued pet. You can call on us at any time to help you in any way. With this in mind, please answer the questions on the application to the best of your ability.
We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone for any reason. A represented of our group may conduct a home visit prior to the following adoption and our group has the right to reclaim an animal following an adoption if unsuitable home conditions, evidence of neglect, abuse or other mistreatment of an animal are establish.
IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED AS AN ADOPTER YOU MUST:
• Be 21 years of age or older.
