What is Almost Home Canine Rescue’s adoption process?
Our adoption application can be filled out at https://fs26.formsite.com/eX7D4S/form3/index.html :) Thank you for your interest in adopting with Almost Home! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any general questions. All dogs are: * spayed or neutered prior to adoption (including puppies) * evaluated for temperament and trainability * up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations (DHPPC and Rabies) * heartworm tested (6 months of age and older) * Given flea, tick and heartworm preventatives * given a dental check and cleaning if necessary * groomed if necessary * treated for any necessary medical conditions * microchipped GENERAL ADOPTION FEES: Adult dog: $150-400 Puppy: $350-500 *These are subject to change based on age, medical needs, and breed.* Please do not hesitate to reach out about the status of your application via email: email@example.com PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING. ADOPTION PROCESS **Please note that we reserve the right to terminate an application at any point throughout the adoption process. Rude or inappropriate behavior towards our volunteers are not tolerated at any time. WE NO LONGER ARE ACCEPTING GENERAL APPLICATIONS. Please list a specific dog(s) that you are interested in adopting. Please know that listing interest does not guarantee that you will adopt that animal. You may list multiple dogs. VETTING All current animals in the home MUST be up to date on all appropriate vaccinations and be spayed or neutered unless there is a medical reason verified by your veterinarian’s office. Please call your vet and confirm that your animals are current on their vaccinations PRIOR to completing the application. Any application that has current pets that are not up to date (excluding medical reasons) will not be considered and removed without notice. REFERENCES Please contact your personal references to let them know we will be calling and to release information to us. Also be sure to list accurate telephone numbers of your references. This ensures your references call us back, which helps the process move along more quickly. We will attempt to contact your references no more than 3 times. PRE-ADOPTION HOME VISIT This home visit provides us an opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know more about us and the rescue dog you are interested in adopting. This also helps us see if a dog would be a good fit for the energy and layout of your home. We are not there to judge your home; we just want to ensure our dogs will be safe in your home and be a good fit for your family. All members of the household MUST be present at the time of the home visit. We generally do homevisits through Zoom Meetings. Due to Covid19 many of our home visits are being conducted electronically. MEETING THE DOG/ADOPTION Once the home visit has been completed, we get you in contact with the foster parents so you can set up a time to meet the dog. We expect an adopter to take possession of a dog as soon as it is ready to be adopted. WE DO NOT HOLD DOGS FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. If you plan on moving, taking a trip, or have major life events coming up, please wait and apply AFTER those events have occurred. This is to ensure the dog's life is not disrupted more than necessary. Thank you for understanding! WE DO NOT REFUND ADOPTION FEES Sometimes we have multiple applications for a dog. Please understand that we do our best to choose the home we feel is the best fit for the dog. This does not mean that you aren't a good adoptive family; we just may not think the dog would do well in your home. We may not decide until after we have done home visits for multiple families and we appreciate your cooperation and patience. Thank you for understanding. **If the dog you applied for was adopted by another family please know that we will keep your APPROVED application on file for 6 months. If another dog catches your eye in that time frame please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always here to help! We want this adoption to be successful, and we always are here to give advice and offer assistance. Please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
