PSD Adoption Application
Please read carefully and fill out the below form in its entirety. Due to the extremely large volume of applications and inquiries we receive for each dog, only COMPLETE applications will be reviewed. If you do not answer a question or provide incomplete answers to questions (e.g. not providing a full home address, veterinary information when needed, or personal references), your application will not be reviewed. After submitting, we will contact you if we feel that you would be a good match for the dog you have applied for or, if that dog is no longer available, if we feel you would be a good fit for one of our other adoptable dogs.

Our adoption process has FIVE (5) major components. Please review these components carefully so you know what to expect after submitting an application. The completion of this application partially satisfies only component #1 :

1. A fully completed adoption application (below) that will be reviewed by us and if approved, we will request that you send copies of current dogs vaccination/neuter history to move forward
2. A home visit and/or brief interview with one of our adoption coordinators
3. A meet and greet with the dog of interest
4. A completed adoption contract and a tax-deductible adoption donation ($400)

***PSD MATCH LIST*** We endeavor to keep our pet listings (Petfinder, Facebook, etc.) up to date within 48 hours, but if you are not interested in a specific dog and/or the dog you are applying for is no longer available and you would like to join the PSD Match List please indicate this in the "Any other relevant information" portion of the application. The PSD Match List is a list of very approved (and patient!) adopters that are committed to our cause and would like to join our family of PSD adopters but are either waiting for the right dog to come along or would like us to match them with another dog currently in our care. If you would like to be added to this list, please let us know and indicate what age/size/breed/sex preference you have, if any.

Thank you for your support and for your interest in adopting a Punta Santiago Dog!

Your answer
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING 5 STATEMENTS AND SIGN TO INDICATE YOU UNDERSTAND/ACCEPT. 1) I understand that I am apply to adopt a dog from a country where tropical diseases (e.g. bacteria, viruses, parasites, mange, etc) are common and that despite the veterinary protocols implemented by PSD, the dog's medical/health history prior to date of rescue may be unknown. 2) PSD has an adoption fee of $400 for most of our dogs, which goes directly to our rescue efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico and helps to pay for the food, boarding, veterinary care, medications, and airline transport of our dogs to the mainland U.S. On average, we spend about $1,000 on the vetting, care, and transportation of each dog we rescue. Your adoption donation plays a critical role in allowing us to continue rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned dogs in the future. 3) My signature on this application certifies that I have answered all of the above questions honestly and that I accept the terms of the Adoption policy, including the cost of the adoption fee. 4) I understand all statements provided to me by Punta Santiago Dogs regarding this application and I understand that falsification of any portion of the above information may result in disqualification of my application and may prevent me from adopting from Punta Santiago Dogs in the future. 5) I understand that the completion of this application is not a guarantee that I will be approved to adopt the above-mentioned dog and that the placement of all dogs is the express and reserved right of PSD based on my answers to the above questions and the outcome of the subsequent components of the adoption process. *
