Adoption Policy

There is a trial period of 12 days during which the dog will be living with the Adoptive Parent. After this trial period Adoptive Parent becomes legal owner of the dog.

Trial period begins from the date this agreement is signed.

An adoption donation of $1000 is due at signing. The adoption donation is not a purchase price, but covers cost of transportation and documents is therefore, non-refundable after the 12 day trial period when adoption is finalized.

Adoptive Parent is responsible for dog’s safety (microchip registration, leash, harness, etc). Note: all our dogs come with microchips.

During the trial period, the Adoptive Parent agrees to keep in touch with our representative and provide updates of the dog’s well being.

Adoptive Parent agrees to allow CArescueTeam Representative to visit their home during the trial period to check on the well-being of the dog.

Adoptive Parent agrees to contact CArescueTeam Representative in case any health issues occur during the trial period.

In the event Adoptive Parent surrenders the dog to CArescueTeam during the trial period, he/she must write a detailed explanation with the reasons for the return and deliver the dog to the foster home or other place specified by a CArescueTeam representative. In the event of the return, Adoptive Parent is entitled to a partial adoption fee reimbursement of full amount minus $50.

In the event the animal escapes from Adoptive Parents and goes missing during the trial period, Adoptive Parent agrees to contact first Animal Control and then CArescueTeam IMMEDIATELY and follow the instructions provided.
