STEP 1 APPLICATION
We require that you complete and return a signed copy of the A & S Adoption
Application. On this form, we require both a personal and veterinarian reference.
Upon completion, please fax to 847.639.3903
or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
STEP 2 INITIAL CALL TO FOSTER PARENT
After reviewing your application, A & S will contact you to discuss the dogs
available for adoption. Please be patient while we review your application - we
want to make sure that the match is a perfect one! We will phone you
immediately after the application review is finished.
STEP 3 HOME VISIT
Before meeting any of our available dogs, an A & S volunteer will visit your home
to perform a "home check". The purpose of this visit is to verify any information
you have listed on the application (i.e. fenced-in yard, crate, etc.) and to assure
that the dog will be kept inside as a member of the family.
STEP 4 MEETING THE AVAILABLE DOGS
After your application has been approved, you will be invited to meet the AmStaffs
and Pit Bulls of your choice. We encourage you to look at all of the available dogs
in our program which fit your profile. Most of our dogs are in foster homes in
Northern Illinois; A & S will contact the foster family to arrange a meeting. All
members of the family (including other dogs) are required to attend this initial
meeting to assure a good match!
STEP 5 ADOPTION CONTRACT & FEES
To finalize the adoption, we will need a signed contract. Our adoption fees range
from $150 to $350. Each fee is charged in accordance with the amount of medical
care the dog has received at the time of adoption.
