LOAD Adoption Application
Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Love Of All Dogs. Before completing our adoption application, we ask that you please review the following policies and guidelines:
* In order for an application to be approved, all dogs and cats currently owned by applicant must be indoor pets only and not chained or penned outside, must be neutered or spayed, and must be up to date with all vaccines.

* In the application below, we request names and phone numbers for a personal reference (not relatives), your current veterinarian if you are a current or recent pet owner, and your landlord if you rent. Prior to submitting your application, please let each reference know you are applying to adopt a pet and to expect a call from a LOAD representative. We will follow up will each of these references.

* Adopting a dog is a life-long commitment. It can be incredibly rewarding but involves a lot of work and additional financial responsibility. There are many resources on the internet that describe the costs and daily commitment involved. We recommend that all prospective adopters carefully consider this commitment before submitting your application, especially first-time dog owners. If you are unsure of how prepared you are for adoption, you should consider being a foster first. It is the perfect way to test run having a pet and you'd be helping an animal in need.

Thank you again for your interest in adopting one of our dogs! We promise to get you on your way to your new lives together as quickly as we can. We will do our best to follow up with your references and respond to you within 48 hours of receiving your application.

Any dog’s behavior may change when in a new environment, and any dog may react unpredictably when startled or hurt by a child, intentionally or unintentionally.
