Prospective adoptees are required to fill out the Home Evaluation Form and provide three personal references. Once returned, it is screened and the references are checked. This helps the rescue committee know what type of a dog you are looking for to insure a proper fit.
If your home evaluation form and reference checks are satisfactory, a rescue representative will schedule a time to come out to your home to do a home study. This ensures that the environment is suitable for the dog. If repairs to fences need to be made then you will be instructed about the repairs that need to be made before acquiring the rescue dog.
Once your application has been approved, you will be invited to visit the dogs available for adoption. If there are no dogs in rescue at that time, your name will be placed on a list and when a dog or dogs come into rescue you will be notified. You will have the opportunity to visit with the dogs and if you do not find a dog of your choosing then your name will remain on the list and you will be called each time a dog comes into rescue, until you pick a suitable match.
We do ask for a non-refundable $395 tax deductible donation which goes back into rescue to perpetuate the program. The donation is collected at the time the dog is placed with you. And you are required to sign a rescue contract outlining the conditions of the adoption.
We strongly encourage new adoptees to join the club. The club is a good resource and a lot of fun with activities throughout the year.
