Adopting a friend
Would you like adopt a dog from MARS? You call us and talk it over, read our information package, then fill out an adoption application form. Our representatives will check out your references, getting as much information as possible in order to decide if you will provide an environment compatible with any dog we may have waiting for a new home. One or two MARS volunteers will visit you in your home in order to ask specific questions about what you want in a dog and to talk about the dogs we have available. Any potential problems we see at that time will be fully discussed and resolved.
When you have been approved for adoption, you will be introduced to the Akitas. Each will have been spayed or neutered, will be vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative, and in general good health. The Akita will have been evaluated on its response to male and female adults, children, cats, other Akitas, small dogs and various other stimuli. As a result, there is a $300.00 required donation when you adopt.
