Adoption Policy

All adoptions require an application to be submitted as well as a home visit, contacting applicant references and if applicable, landlords.

Adoption Agreement

I agree that I am adopting this animal solely as a pet for myself and/or my immediate

I agree that I will not sell, give away or otherwise dispose of said animal to any person(s) or other entity for any reason without the prior approval of FLH. If at a later date I am unable or unwilling to keep this animal, I agree to contact FLH and give FLH the opportunity to take back the pet.

At our discretion we may approve a foster-to-adopt arrangement. I understand that an adoption is not final until confirmation is received in writing from Fur Love Haven.

At our 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 also agree to 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.

I understand that I can return the pet to FLH within 15 days of the date of this Agreement and FLH will refund the entire adoption fee paid. I also understand and agree that the adoption fee I paid to FLH is reasonable and is not refundable after 15 days from the date of this adoption agreement even if I return the animal to FLH.

I understand that FLH takes every precaution to assure the health of its adoptable animals but can make NO GUARANTEE of any kind regarding the health and/or temperament of the animal I have adopted.

I understand that I, as the adopter, am financially responsible for the animal upon signing this document. I understand that FLH recommends that I have a veterinarian examine this animal within 15 days of adoption. I give my permission for an agent of FLH to visit the premises where the adopted animal is living, given reasonable notice.

I further give permission for an FLH agent to remove said animal from my premises if FLH determines that the animal is not receiving appropriate care or if I have violated this agreement. Such entry onto my property shall not constitute trespass upon the premises occupied.

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.

HOLD HARMLESS/INDEMNIFICATION: 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.

By submitting the FLH Adoption Application, you are agreeing that:

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

I understand that this animal MUST be indoors and will not be chained/penned

I further understand that if for any reason I want to give up this animal, I will email
Fur Love Haven and undergo a 14-day waiting period in which a representative from
the organization will work with me to resolve any issues with the animal.

I also understand that a representative from the organization may 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. Your application submission authorizes us to do so as necessary, and
automatically transfers ownership rights of said animal back to Fur Love Haven at that

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 authorize Fur Love Haven (FLH) to contact:
