Dog Adoption Application
Applying to adopt a dog does not guarantee that you will be the successful candidate to adopt him/her.  We are volunteer run and it may take up to a week to process this application.  Please answer questions fully and honestly.  Each application is reviewed with consideration for the animal's personality and unique needs.  Answering honestly will better assist us in determining if you are a potential good fit for this animal, and aid in the adoption process.

Adopting an animal is a big commitment. A dog can live up to 20+ years. You know and understand that any costs from the day of adoption onward, are your sole responsibility. It is your responsibility to provide a nurturing and safe home for this animal if you are the successful adoption applicant.   *
We cannot guarantee an animal's behaviour after it is adopted out. Their behaviour in care is assessed and based on their actions and behaviours observed in their foster home.  Transitioning to new environments can cause animals to behave differently.   *
We cannot guarantee the breed, age, or health of the animals after they leave our care. All of our animals are checked by a vet, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed while in care.  Any pre-existing health conditions (if any) that Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society has been made aware of by the vet, will be fully disclosed prior to adoption. Our veterinary partners have given their best professional opinion of this animal's health, age, and breed. *
If for any reason I am not able to care for this animal in the future, I understand that it is mandatory that I return the animal to Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society. No refund will be given and Paws in Need will then work to rehome the animal again.  I am not allowed to rehome or sell this animal to another party. *
By submitting this form, you agree that all information above is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge.  The falsification of any information may result in the denial of your adoption application.  Should you fail to meet any of the requirements set forth by Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society, you understand that your application will be denied.  Following adoption, if any of the provided information is found to be false or misrepresented, Paws in Need may repossess the animal in question. *
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
