Dog Adoption Application

 Yes, I certify that the above information is true and correct.
  • Animals are accepted from all sources including previously owned, stray, abandoned or homeless.
  • As we sometimes have no background information on the health or temperament of an animal or if the information provided to us is inaccurate, we do not guarantee the health or temperament of any animal.
  • Although we screen both medically and behaviorally every animal that is placed out in the adoption area, certain types of problems will not demonstrate themselves until the animal is in a home situation or a specific period has lapsed (as in the incubation of certain viruses). There is always some risk in adopting any animal form a shelter or humane organization.
