Here is how the process goes:
Step 1: Complete our adoption application including vet and personal references.
Step 2: All veterinary and personal references will be contacted, so please be sure to inform them ahead of time to expedite this part of the process. Your vet reference(s) will need to confirm that any current pets you own are spayed/neutered and current on HW prevention. If our volunteer feels any major concerns after speaking with your references, the application process ends here.
Step 3: One of our volunteers will conduct an applicant interview and home visit. This allows us the opportunity to get to know you, your lifestyle, home environment, and to determine if your family is the best fit. All members of your household must be present for the home visit. If our volunteer has any major concerns after your home visit, or if you refuse a home visit, your application will be denied at this point.
Step 4: Once your application has been approved, we will coordinate a time for you to meet the dog you are interested in adopting. This could occur at your home or the foster's home. If after meeting, the foster parent does not feel you are the best fit for the dog, your application will be denied.
Step 5: When you reach this stage, you will be required to sign an adoption contract and provide payment of the adoption fee for the dog. The foster parent will coordinate with you to transfer the dog over to you.
Any travel arrangements are the responsibility of the adopter and must be approved by our rescue
prior to agreement of adoption.
