Dog/Puppy Adoption Application
Before you succumb to falling in love with a puppy or dog, ask yourself the following question: "Do I really want a dog and all the responsibilities that come with having one?" The reality is that adopting a dog or puppy requires a 10 - 20 year commitment on your part and you need to know if you are ready for that commitment. If you have made the commitment to have a new dog or puppy for yourself or family, we will work with you to find a dog whose requirements match for your life-style, expectations, experience and needs. We will offer training resources to you to help you in the trasition period of having a new dog/puppy in your home.
The dogs and puppies that come into our adoption program have either abandoned, picked up as strays but no owner found or have been given-up because their owner no longer can or will care for them. Sheltered dogs are loving animals that may not have been provided the training or care necessary by their previous guardians to make them an easy pet to live with. Because of this, all of our dogs live in homes with a foster care provider. The foster care provider helps assess the dog's raining, needs, and personality which helps this humane society place the dog/puppy into the most appropriate matched home and situation.
The adoption process for each dog occurs over approximately one week's time because of coordinating schedules for all parties involved. We do our best to expedite the process efficiently and effectively so we ask your patience and understanding. If you are interested in a specific dog, please complete this application and submit it online. After your application is received, it will be reviewed. We will contact you for clarification and conversation. If we feel you are a good match for the dog/puppy you are applying for, we will schedule a meeting and interview time with you. Please note that all household members should be present during the interview. Depending on the situation, including additional pets, a home visit may be required.
A Caring Place Humane Society reserves the right to approve or deny any application or application base on this organization's adoption criteria as well as the presumed needs of the dog or puppy being applied for. Completion of this application does not guarantee an approval for adoption nor does it place a hold on any animal.
Please read this Application and fill in the blanks. The information you provide in the Application and during our interview will help us find a good match for you.
