Thank you for taking the time to fill out our questionnaire. YES, it's long. The purpose of this application and the corresponding questions is to learn a little about your family and home so that our organization can make the BEST POSSIBLE MATCH for both you and our rescue animal. Our main concern is placing our animals in a compatible home with a family that will give them a LIFETIME commitment of love and proper care. This consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the best interest of BOTH the animal and the adopter. PLEASE UNDERSTAND that the completion of this application DOES NOT COMMIT you to adopt one of our animals. NEITHER does it guarantee that we will place one of our animals in your home at this time.
If you are interested in learning more about one of our rescue animals, please answer the questions honestly and thoroughly. Some animals may need extra time and patience to adjust to yet another new home. Some may need housetraining or other types of training, and some may just need a little extra love and patience. All animals, regardless of their background and history, go through an adjustment period when they go to a new environment. There will be a period of a few days, weeks, or - in some cases - months, during which your new pet's personality is emerging and growing while you get to know one another. In order to help you and your new friend get through this transition period smoothly, we will help you in any way possible.
UNDERSTAND that we will check your references, and we reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone for any reason. Any member of our group may conduct home visits prior to or following an adoption. We do reserve the right to reclaim an animal following an adoption if unsuitable/unstable home conditions, evidence of neglect, abuse or other mistreatment of the animal are found on said visit.
