Are you mentally and physically able to take care of this dog? This includes feeding, cleaning up after, bathing, exercising, and taking to veterinary visits.
The next step in adopting this animal if your application is approved is a home visit, which is just a casual visit to get to know you & discuss dog ownership. Which is your preferred way to do the home visit?


Will this be your first dog?

Under what circumstances would you give this dog away to a friend or family member?
Under what circumstances would you surrender this dog to the animal shelter?


Do you agree to donate the appropriate adoption fee for this pet? The adoption fee for each specific dog is indicated on its adoption listing. While this donation does not cover the full medical expenses paid by the rescue, this is the amount agreed as a fair donation.
You understand that you are applying to adopt a dog whose medical history is unknown before it entered the rescue. We address all known medical issues when the dog comes into the rescue, but we cannot predict any future medical problems. You agree that, as the dog's legal owner, all future veterinary costs are your sole responsibility from the date of adoption forward.

The average dog's lifespan is 10-15 years. Do you agree that you are comfortable making a commitment to this dog to be its guardian and caretaker for the rest of its life?
