RAIN - Rescuing Animals In Need

Federal Way, WA

Adoption Policy

To apply for a dog or cat through RAIN rescue, please click the link to the adoption application form and fill that out very thoroughly, including photo’s of the primary living areas, sleeping quarters, as well as the yard. We require veterinary information, and at least two references. Every question on the application has a purpose, please take the time to fill out every question, it matters.

If your application is accepted, we will do a pre-screening to verify basic information, after which, we will refer to our screener who will make phone calls and report her assessment.

The process is rather quick. Once the screening is complete, we will notify you that you have been chosen as a new RAIN family member, and we will correspond to make sure it is a good match. The last major step is to set up a meeting time, which is as immediate as possible. If the meeting goes well, you take home your new friend from the meeting. If you are applying for a dog but not quite “ready” to bring him home, this doesn’t have to be a problem. We will not hold dogs for potential adopters, but we will select a new prospect for when you are indeed, ready. We do accept, and prescreen, back up applications. We would like a one week update to make sure all is going well.

Payment methods preferred are Venmo or PayPal, NO CHECKS, but cash is ok too, if you prefer. There is an adoption agreement, which your Adoption Rep will go over with you. You may request this form in advance, if you prefer. All adoption funds go to pulling, vetting, and transporting more dogs from high kill shelters. Your contribution is so greatly appreciated.

Don't be afraid to introduce yourself via Facebook Messenger!

Thank you for visiting RAIN!
