DOG ADOPTION APPLICATION
Thank you for considering adopting a pet from our shelter! We will be happy to conduct an animal interaction if/when your application has been approved. Remember, you are potentially making a 10-year (plus) commitment. All dogs have been vaccinated for Canine distemper, bordatella and parvovirus. Your veterinarian may recommend additional vaccinations at the adopter’s expense. Puppies often require a series of vaccinations. Dogs over three months of age have been vaccinated for rabies. If your puppy is not already vaccinated for Rabies, you will be provided with a date/time to return for his/her vaccination. All dogs have a microchip as a permanent form of identification, have been spayed or neutered, and tested for Heartworm (if 6 months or older). Adoption fees are non-refundable. Your adopted pet must be taken to a veterinarian within 7-10 days of adoption for an exam and any necessary vaccinations/medications. You will be provided with a medical/vaccination record at the time of adoption that should be shared with your veterinarian.

As you live in a Townhome or Condo, Animal Services will need a copy of your association by-laws. If they are not available, we will request your association phone number to verify pets are allowed and check if there are restrictions.
Please answer these questions to the best of your ability. Any questions you have can be discussed with an adoption counselor.
