I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Hello. I’m all ready to get started on this adoption gig, so let me tell you a few things about myself. I have very soft fur, tall ears, and an expressive face. I’m a bit curious and have an endearing personality, or so I have been told. I LOVE squeaky toys, playing fetch or frisbee, running around the yards with children. I also like to be praised. I’m going to be easy train, because I do so want to please my people. I like both kids and adults. I’m a little timid of strangers at first, but once I get a chance to meet people, I’m fine. I am a lady and as such, I do prefer to have proper and polite introductions to other dogs. I get a little overwhelmed when dogs rush up to me and stick their noses in my face. But once everyone is calm, I’m good to start to socialize. I’m the kind of dog who prefers a calm environment. Really loud, chaotic environments are just not for me. I am playful, inquisitive, clever, and silly. I am very attentive and I’ll response to your facial expressions. I have an active mind, so mental stimulation through training, puzzle games, or outside adventures that can keep me thinking are fabulous for wearing me out. Although I do not need to crate, I do like a quiet crate to retreat to when I want to relax. I’ll put myself to bed. And i do love to be petted. So, if you are looking for a clever, active and affectionate girl…I’m you’re girl! Want to meet me? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:
1. Fill out and return our adoption application form. 2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or previous animals. 3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in adopting. 4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family member. We may suggest you bring your other pets to this meeting. 5. If the initial meeting goes well and both parties agree to move forward with the adoption, we will make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family members - human and furry 6. If, at the home visit, both parties agree that the home is good match for the adoptable pet, we will move forward with the adoption. (Please note, some dogs may require several “visits” to the home in order to feel comfortable and transition smoothly into their new environment.) 7. We ask the new family to have a crate, food, toys, treats, etc. ready before the home visit. 8. At the home visit we will review the Home Visit Checklist and Adoption Checklist, review and sign the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee ($200) and take the Happy Tail photo. 9. That same volunteer will check in either by phone or email to make sure things are going well and to answer any questions you might have. Please respond in a timely manner (1-2 days) 10. 7-14 days after the adoption, we will collect the medical records for your adopted pet and send them to you. We will also update the pet’s microchip record with your information.
