be sure to complete all sections of the application including Vet
phone numbers as a vet review is a critical step in the process.
Stephanie, our Director of Adoptions will review the application and contact you. Our main objective is to find the best suitable home for each pet. We do not operate on a first come, first served basis, we take pride in matching the desires of the families to the needs of each pooch, and therefore phone interviews are an important phase of the process.
Once approved, a time will be set to meet the dogs that have been identified as adoptable to your family. If there is a match that is acceptable to the family and the rescue, the adoption can then take place at our licensed location. Our detailed adoption contract will be signed at that time.
Our Adoption Fee is $365.00 (which includes a transportation expense of $75.00 that is incurred to ship dogs from the island) and is non-refundable, to be paid in cash or check (no credit cards accepted at this time). The majority of the adoption fee is sent back to Second Chance Animal Rescue in Puerto Rico so they can continue their work to rescue animals and get them the proper medical care so they can be adoped to loving families.
