If any issues arise with your pets behavior, would you provide the animal with training at your expense? If not, how do you plan to handle it?
I waive all rights and claims against rescue regardless of the expense or damages incurred upon adoption. I will not pursue legal action against rescue and will hold all rescue personnel harmless in the event that any injuries to persons or damages to property arise

I will keep my pets microchip up-to-date
I will keep my pets necessary vaccines up-to-date

I will provide all veterinary care necessary for my pet at my expense and will not allow my pet to suffer with treatable health conditions
If I have other animals and people in the home, I will safely integrate my new pet with proper introductions
I understand that I am adopting a pet that has an unknown history who may, in some instances, take a little extra time to settle in
I will not use this animal in ANY sort of fighting, breeding, or cruelty
I will not euthanize this animal unless health issues arise where euthanasia would be the only humane solution and not before discussing with rescue
If under any circumstances I can no longer provide care for my pet, I will contact the rescue and discuss the situation before taking the animal to a shelter or transferring it to another party, otherwise I may be subject to a $25,000 fine
I will provide rescue with a tax-deductible donation of $350 for the adopted animal which may be made through Venmo, Zelle, Cashapp, Wire Transfer, or Check
