What is New2U Rescues’s adoption process?
We do not have a shelter; all dogs live in foster homes so that we are best able to assess what type of home would be best for our foster dogs. Our goal is to ensure a good match between adopter and foster dog to ensure the dog has a home for life and won’t have to be moved again. We are based out of Rochester, NY and do adoptions to homes in this area. When adopting our dogs we often have requirements. Regarding fencing, when requested we are looking for a physical fence that is in place for time of adoption. We do not accept invisible fencing, we don’t believe in shock training a dog and there are known issues with it. Sorry, this is actually in our contract that e collars will not be used on our dogs. We do allow exceptions to our fencing requirements for active families, where someone is home more during the day and don’t have multiple dogs. Must also be willing to install something like a zip line in yard. Small breed and more mellow adult dogs don’t always require fencing. We adopt dogs out in Rochester area, we will look at ones that are a few hours outside of area if all requirements are met and appears to be a great match but do look at local first. We require a in person meeting of family and existing pets plus home visit. This is obviously easier for adopters who live closer to us. If the application came thru to us you would have gotten a copy of it in your email. If you didn’t then we didn’t either. Please be sure to check your junk mail for correspondence. If your pets are not current on their vet care, including spayed or neutered we will not adopt to you. This is not negotiable and we will verify thru your vet. If you haven’t altered as you want to breed your dog you will be denied. We are a 501c registered charity and are also registered with NY State Department of Agriculture Reg No. 33. We do our best to guess breed or age of dog and most often go with what we are told when taking dog in. They are all microchipped, vetted with vaccines, treated for worms and any other issues and if age appropriate heartworm tested. Older dogs more often also get a dental done when in for their spay/neuter. We disclose any known issues to adopters, our goal is to find home for life. The more we know and share the better the chance of making a lifetime match. We do occasionally get wonderful applications that we know will be an amazing home that do not get the dog they applied for. This could be due to multiple wonderful applications (only one can get the dog) or just not the right dog for that home. We keep applications on file for 6 mths so you are welcome to email us – email@example.com – stating application is on file and name of dog you are interested in and don’t have to fill out new application. As a rescue, our primary concern is the dog in our care, we just want to hopefully find the best match for them so they get to enjoy a lifetime with their new family. We will make exceptions when we believe it would be a great home. The application matters, providing information on it helps us determine if it might be the right home. Spending a little more time explaining things to us will help us make the decision as opposed to one or two word answers. An application must be submitted to meet any of our dogs. We do not operate on first application in gets dog, it is best match for the dog. https://www.cognitoforms.com/New2URescues/AdoptionApplicationNew2URescue link for applications new2urescue.org is our main page. https://www.facebook.com/New2Urescue for facebook.
