Hosts have to agree to provide basic care for the pet(s) they take home for a visit and when they bring the pets back to the center at the end of their visit, they also agree to share videos/photos that capture the animals at their best and some basic information regarding the visit.
These can really help adopters envision what it would be like to live with the dogs they’re considering.
BASIC PROGRAM GUIDELINES:- Host must be 18 years and older- Host must present picture ID- Pets on the adoption floor at PVAC/PAWS can be introduced to current pets- Pets on the PVAC Urgent Pets Page, must be housed separately during their visit
