Please fill out this application in its entirety. We know it might seem in-depth, but all questions on this application are meant to help us determine if the dog you're applying for is a good fit for your family, home, and lifestyle! This questionnaire also serves as the interview process for us since we will likely not be able to meet you face-to-face. We promise our doggies are worth it!
Applications are processed on a first come, first serve basis. However, placement of a dog will ultimately depend on the best possible situation for everyone involved.
Barring any special circumstances (such as public holidays) you can expect your application to be processed in approximately one week.
If a question or field does not apply to you, please put “NA”.
You must be able to financially afford the cost of a pet, both preventative and emergency treatment.
You must be able to provide two non-family references.
You, nor anyone in your household, must ever have been convicted of animal cruelty.
You will agree to take the dog to the vet within 4 weeks of receipt for a general wellness check.
You must be able to claim the dog you're applying for within two weeks of application approval. Unfortunately, since Reggie's Friends is a completely foster-based rescue, we cannot commit to holding or reserving a dog under normal circumstances. If you wish to inquire about a dog but do not meet this requirement, please email email@example.com with the details of your situation so that we may review your case.
$500 for spayed/neutered dogs adopted outside of Houston, TX$450 for non-spayed/non-neutered dogs adopted outside of Houston, TX*$300 for all dogs adopted within the Houston, TX area
Fees include the cost of all relevant housing, feeding, and vetting. The fee for adoptions outside of Houston, TX will also include a new crate, a new crate bed, and the cost of transportation. Fees are subject to change based on the dogs medical and/or transportation needs.
Fees must be paid within three (3) days of application approval. Once you are approved we will remove the dog from our website; however if the fee is not received within that time frame we will have to put the dog back up for adoption so they don't miss out on their next great opportunity.
Sorry, but Reggie's Friends cannot accept partial fees.
*Please note that if you are adopting a dog that is not already spayed or neutered, you must be willing to sign an addendum to our normal contract which states that you will get the procedure performed when the dog is old/healthy enough.
Please ensure that your references will be able to communicate with us within a week's time so that we can get your application processed in a timely fashion.
Since we cannot usually perform home-visits we ask that our applicants please send some pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org that help us get a better feel for your home, family, and lifestyle.
Some good examples of photos we like to see are any current pets, kiddos, back yards, dog sleeping/play areas...anything you think would help us understand what your new fur-baby can expect!
