Adoption Process:

1- The first step in adopting a Havanese Rescue Inc. (HRI) dog is to read the dogs’ listings carefully to find out if you would be a good match for the dog’s needs and wish list.

2- The next step in the adoption process is for the potential adopter to fill out an adoption application found on our website. This application is NOT a commitment to adopt. The purpose of this application is to match you with the dog that will best suit your family and lifestyle. Please answer each question as completely as possible. In the next day or so, look for an email in your Inbox or spam folder from one of our volunteers from the @HavaneseRescue.com domain, read and save it for future reference. This email acknowledges receipt of your application and also gives you a lot of important information including your State Contact's email address plus that of the dog’s State Contact when you live in a different state from the dog’s foster home. You may wish to contact the State Contact with any questions you may have about one of our dogs.

3- Applications are reviewed by the State Contact where the dog is being fostered. Those applications that appear to match a dog's needs and wish list are forwarded to the foster parent who knows the dog best. (HRI is looking for the right home for each dog). The foster parent then has the very difficult job of narrowing down the list of applications and checks references for the most suitable applicants

4- Four personal references and vet reference are checked. If everything checks out, a Home Visit is made.

5- Home visit is completed.

6- If both the applicant and Adoption committee agree that this would be a great match, then the dog goes to his/her forever home. after the adoption contract is signed and adoption fee paid.
