HEART Adoption Application
Please understand that we do not adopt on a first come-first serve basis. Pre-approved applicants do not need to re-apply, just contact us if you see an animal you feel would be a good fit and your application will be considered with any others. We work very hard to choose the home that is best suited to the animal and family alike. We require that all animals in your home are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines (exceptions may be made for health related decisions made and confirmed by a licensed veterinarian). Please complete ALL questions on this form. Some may not pertain to you, so a N/A is appropriate (form will not submit if all questions are not completed.) A HEART volunteer will confirm receipt of this submission within 24 hours by email, so if you do not receive confirmation, please contact us by email at heartrescue2016@gmail.com or send us a message on our Facebook page. Please also feel free to email us if you have any questions prior to filling out this form. If you are not applying for a specific animal and just looking to be pre-approved, note that on "name of animal" line. Pre-approval does not always mean you would be the best fit for all animals.
