By filling out our Adoption Application you are simply giving us the opportunity to get to know you and your family. Once you have filled out the application we will usually then call you to talk with about whether the pet that you are looking at may be a good fit for your family. You are making no obligations to adopt. You will usually hear from the foster parent within a couple of days from submitting your application.
Some animals may need some extra time and patience to adjust to yet another new home. Some may need housetraining or other types of training, and some may just need a little extra love and patience. All animals, regardless of their background and history, go through an adjustment period when they go to a new environment. There will be a period of a few days, weeks or in some cases months during which your new petís 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 rescue 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 representative of our group may conduct home visits prior to or following an 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 the animal are found on this visit.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. We hope that by going through this process, we will reduce the chance of an inappropriate match both for you and for our animals. If you have any comments regarding this adoption application or our adoption process, please feel free to let us know as we are always looking for ways to improve! Again, thank you for considering a rescue pet and saving a life.
