Please remember that adopting an animal is a SERIOUS commitment. Animals may take several weeks or months to settle into their new environment. They cost money and require lots of attention and love. Please, seriously consider your decision to adopt. Sadly, too many animals are adopted and returned simply because folks didn't think adoption through enough. We highly suggest that you research what is best for you and your family so the adoption experience is a positive and lasting one for you and the animal you adopt.
I understand I must be 18 years of age and will provide the information requested before I agree to adopt an animal from the LaGrange Troup County Humane Society. I understand that an adoption contract will be filled out and signed, clearly stating that the Humane Society has the right to investigate the home and will remove the animal if it is not receiving adequate care; if it is being endangered by lack of veterinary care; if there is a violation of the adoption agreement or if there has been a failure to observe the anti-cruelty laws.
Do you rent or own your home?
Is there a fenced in yard?
If no, how will you house and exercise the dog?
If you rent, are you allowed to have a pet?
Is there a restriction on what type or weight of pet allowed?
If yes, what are the restrictions?
Do you have children?
If so, what are their ages?
Have you ever surrendered a pet?
If yes, when and why?
Do you own another pet now?
If so what type and age are they?
The Humane Society asks that if you have children or other pets (dogs) that you bring them to meet the animal you are interested in adopting before making that adoption.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
