What's sweet, funny, snuggly and super duper smart? Royce!!

Royce is a boy who will love you and entertain you! What could be more special than a beautiful speckled white boy dog with a wonderful personality? How about one who is crate trained and house trained! One that lets you know when he's tired and needs to go to bed. How about one who gets along with every dog and human he has met? And when he plays he plays with all of his heart. He runs around and chase nothing or he will play tug-of-war with another dog. He is very carefree and full of life.

Royce was born March of this last year and he is ready to find his new home. Royce happens to be deaf but he is learning sign language and other commands using essential oils in a spray bottle. When he can smell a certain scent, he knows that he needs to come. And he is learning more things all the time. We are going to class and learning how to teach him, or better yet, to teach us how to communicate. He is such a pleasing and loving dog it's not hard to teach him anything. Add in the fact that he loves loves loves treats and you got a perfect training buddy!

Royce would probably be most happy in a household with another dog or someone who is active who will entertain him as much as he entertains you. He is not extra high energy but he does love to be on the go. He likes to be in a car and he does so well in group settings. I could go on and on about him but I want you to meet him so you see everything great about him firsthand.

If you want to see how special he is in person please fill out an application so you can set up a fun interview with Royce. Royce is fixed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Our Adoption Process...

STEP 1: ADOPTION APPLICATION – If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website. This application will tell us about you, your lifestyle, and your background with animals. Applications are PROCESSED on a first come first served basis, BUT applications are APPROVED based on which applicant is the best match for the animal. Click here to complete an adoption application.

STEP 2: PRELIMINARY REVIEW – Your application will initially be screened to determine if all necessary information was provided. If needed, we will contact you to request additional information.

STEP 3: VETERINARY REFERENCE CHECK – We will contact your veterinarian to verify that your previous and currents pets are receiving appropriate veterinary care and are current on their vaccinations, on monthly preventatives, and are spayed/neutered.

Please note, if you/your veterinarian cannot verify the spay/neuter, vaccination, and heartworm preventative (dog only) records of your current pets, processing of your application will be put on hold until you can provide this information.

STEP 4: LANDLORD VERIFICATION (IF APPLICABLE) - If you rent your home, we will contact your landlord directly to verify that pets are permitted and that the pet you are adopting would not violate pet related restrictions.
STEP 5: MEET AND GREET: Our organization does not have a facility where you can meet the pets in our care, so we rely on foster homes, off-site adoption events, and adoption habitats at local pet stores. Once your application is approved, we will forward your application to the person caring for the pet who will then contact you to arrange a meet and greet. This meeting can take place at the foster’s residence, a public location, or at your home – it is at the discretion of the foster parent.

STEP 6: HOME VISIT- A home visit is an informal chance for us to get to know you and your family. You will be visited by a Bastrop Animal Rescue volunteer and usually the pet you are wanting to adopt. The volunteer will do a short walk-through of your home and yard to ensure its safety and to advise you on any areas of concern.

If our home visit volunteer has any major concerns about your home environment, or if you refuse a home visit, your application will be denied at this point in the process.

STEP 7: ADOPTION – Upon a successful meet and greet and home visit, you are required to sign an adoption contract and to provide payment of the adoption fee for the pet that you are adopting. At this time, you assume physical and financial responsibility of the pet.

Adoption fees are:

$250 for puppies and small breed dogs (under 20 lbs.)
$190 for medium and large breed dogs (over 20 lbs.)
$150 for senior and special needs dogs (9 years and older).

$50 for cats and kittens.

Our adoption fees include a variety of services – age-appropriate vaccinations, canine heartworm testing (and treatment if positive), feline immunodeficiency virus/feline leukemia virus testing, spaying/neutering, deworming, and microchipping (with free registration).

Please note, we will not adjust the adoption fee at your request. If you cannot afford the adoption fee, we fear that you will be unable to afford the costs associated with caring for the pet. The average annual cost to provide care for a dog is $1,500 to $2,000 and for a cat is $800 to $1,200.
