Adoption Policy


By submitting this Adoption Agreement, I agree that:
I am at least 18 years of age.

I am adopting the animal for myself, and I agree to not give away, sell, or trade my animal, even as a gift to a friend or family member without Fur Love Haven’s (FLH) prior approval. I will neither take the animal to a shelter nor abandon the animal.

I will care for this animal in a humane and responsible manner and to provide it with clean and appropriate shelter, food, water, exercise, companionship and veterinary care. This animal will be indoors and will not be chained/penned outside.

I understand that FLH recommends that I have a veterinarian examine this animal within 15 days of adoption. I can return the animal to FLH within 15 days of the date of this agreement and FLH will refund the entire adoption fee paid. The adoption fee is not refundable after 15 days from the date of this agreement even if I return the animal to FLH.

At the time of adoption, the animal will have age appropriate core vaccinations unless an FLH veterinarian recommends delaying any vaccinations for health reasons. If vaccinations were not completed and were due prior to adoption, an FLH representative will coordinate an appointment at an FLH veterinarian at the expense of FLH. Core vaccinations are DHPP, Bordatella and Rabies for dogs; FVRCP and Rabies for cats. I agree that I, as the adopter, am financially responsible for the animal (including boosters and subsequent vaccinations) effective the date of this document.

A representative from the organization may make inquiries to veterinarians or visit the animal to ensure that it is well taken care of. If we find that the animal has been neglected or abused in any way or for any reason, we reserve the right to remove the animal from the premises. Attempts to remove the animal shall not constitute trespass at the property occupied by the animal. Upon removal, ownership rights of the animal automatically transfer back to Fur Love Haven.

In the event the animal becomes lost or dies, I will immediately notify FLH.

I will notify FLH of any change of contact information (address, phone number, or email address).

I will notify FLH, without delay, if I can no longer care for or keep my animal and agree to give FLH reasonable time to rehome my animal or place my animal in an approved foster home, if available.

I agree that I will ensure the animal is up to date on vaccines and notify FLH of any behavioral problems that have occurred before I return my animal.

HOLD HARMLESS/INDEMNIFICATION: The animal’s known background and medical history have been discussed with me. I understand that FLH has made no representation concerning the health, condition, training, behavior, or temperament of the animal.
Fur Love Haven (FLH) and its Officers, Board of Directors, Volunteers, Affiliated Entities and/or agents shall not be liable to adopter on any theory of legal liability including but not limited to the negligence of FLH (and its Officers, Board of Directors, Board of Directors, Volunteers and/or agents) for any injury, death or damage directly or indirectly caused by this animal. Adopter does hereby release FLH (and its Officers, Board of Directors, Volunteers and/or agents) from any and all liability, claims, suits, obligations, demands or causes of action, known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, arising out of or relating in any way to this animal or FLH’s release of this animal.

At FLH discretion we may approve a foster-to-adopt arrangement. An adoption is not final until confirmation is received in written form from FLH.

At FLH discretion we may approve an adoption prior to the spay/neuter of an animal and a Spay/Neuter Agreement will be required. I agree to be bound by the terms of the separate Spay/Neuter Agreement.

I agree that Fur Love Haven will remain as a secondary contact on this animal’s microchip registration with the phone number (971) 208-3881.

I will ensure proper licensing of the animal and compliance with all applicable local and state statutes.

I authorize Fur Love Haven (FLH) to contact:
My veterinarian(s) to check the care provided to previously and/or current pets, and to check the spay/neuter history;
My landlord to ensure that I have his/her/its permission to keep pets) on the premises; and
My employer to confirm employment

I certify that all the statements made by me on the Adoption Application are true and correct. I agree that FLH has the right to confiscate the adopted animal in the event that any statements made by me are found to be false and/or payment for the adoption fee is returned or denied.


I have completely read and agree to the terms of the Adoption agreement and understand all questions on the application.
