Australian Shepherd Advocates Adoption Form
THANK YOU very much for your interest in adopting from Australian Shepherd Advocates (ASA)!
ASA is a nationwide, foster-based, 501(c)3 dog rescue. As ASA is run by volunteers and the application process is as thorough as possible, please allow 10-14 days for processing (in some cases it may take longer).
*Applicants must be 21 years old and over.*

SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE BEFORE APPLYING:
-Please COMPLETE all aspects of the application. Applications WILL NOT BE PROCESSED if they are missing any information or found to have misinformation.
-Please be sure to read the dog's description/bio THOROUGHLY before applying.
-ASA knows the varied needs of each dog, which can sometimes be complex. We take great care in placing each dog, in order to do all we can to ensure a Happy Forever for both the dog and the adopter. If you are not chosen to adopt the dog you applied for, it does not mean that you are not an approved applicant. Most likely, the dog either received many applications, or the rescue needs to continue to find the very best match possible based on what the rescue knows about their dog.
-All residents over 18 years old must be aware of and agree to the adoption of a dog. Therefore, we are unable to adopt out dogs to be "surprises" to other adults or to anyone other than the adult applicant (s).
- ASA is not able to adopt more than one dog at a time to an approved applicant.
-The breed or mix listed for each dog is based on available knowledge and observation. It is not based on proof by DNA.
- As a nationwide, foster-based rescue, we have many dogs in many states and therefore, cannot generally arrange meet and greets. Occasionally, exceptions are made depending on the dog's needs and location.
-We do not move our dogs without approved placement and AFTER the Adoption Contract has been signed and returned.

Thank you again! ASA
