Who is/was the vet office for the above animals that can verify your consistent vaccine records and heartworm prevention (if you didn't have pets or consistent vetting write n/a)? *
If you have current pets please list the vet office(s) for the current pets.
If you're a first time pet owner or don't have a vet who can verify consistent vetting (at least 2 years of core vaccines and heartworm prevention) listed in your name, then we can still move forward with the application by adding the following vetting stipulation to your adoption contract: For a dog adoption without an approved vet check, we will require an extra stipulation be added to the adoption agreement saying that when you do the core vaccinations for the next 3 years and buy heartworm prevention you will send us the receipts for our files. You will also have to buy a year supply of heartworm prevention medication at your first vet visit and send us the receipt so that we know that you are keeping up with proper preventive vetting. All of this is vetting you would be doing anyway so the extra step is just sending us the receipt. ***Please let us know if you agree to this vetting stipulation if needed based on the criteria listed. *
Have you ever had to give up a pet? If yes, please explain why. (If not, write n/a.) *
Do you realize that a dog may live 15 or more years and are you willing to make a commitment to them that will last their lifetime? *
It may take your new dog two or more weeks to adjust to the new home, especially if shy or if other pets are involved. Are you prepared to allow this much time? *
