Please note: adoptions are not approved on a first-come, first-served basis, and completing this application does in no way guarantee adoption of any animal. This form is used for screening of potential adopters for our rescued pets, and as our first step in getting to know you, your home, family members, lifestyle, and your level of experience with pets. We place many hours into rehabilitating our rescued pets to make them suitable candidates for adoption. Each pet differs from one another in looks, personality, specific needs, health, and prior experiences. It is our job to ensure our rescued pets are properly matched up with homes where their chance at a ‘forever placement’ is greatest. Please understand the average dog can live over 10 years, cat into their late teens and early 20’s, and horses into their late 20's and early 30's. Many factors influence a pet’s lifespan. It is our policy to ensure that each person who adopts a pet is aware of the responsibilities of pet ownership. We have fostered these animals in our homes, and this is our opportunity to get to know you as a potential home and to assist you in selecting a pet that would best suit you and your home environment. You are making a major commitment when you adopt a pet. IF YOU ADOPT AN ANIMAL FROM US YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IF YOU ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO CARE FOR THE ANIMAL THAT YOU WILL CONTACT THE ANIMAL PROTECTORATES PRIOR TO TAKING ANY ACTION AND FAILURE TO DO SO WILL BE DEEMED A BREACH OF THE ADOPTION CONTRACT.
