Mending Spirits Animal Rescue's Adoption Process

ADOPTION PROCESS:
1. Search adoptable animals & complete application.

2. Application Processing Team will review/process application, conduct background screening & contact vet/personal references.

3. Foster provider schedules a “meet & greet" with applicant. Resident dogs & ALL people (including children) living or frequently visiting the applicant's home are REQUIRED to attend the meet & greet.

4. If the foster provider & adopter agree to move forward, a home visit will be scheduled. Long-distance adopters can request home visit prior to meet & greet to avoid multiple trips.

5. After the home visit is approved, payment & adoption contract will be completed. You will receive your contract via e-mail from DocuSign & your invoice via e-mail from PayPal. PayPal can be paid by credit, debit or PayPal account (you do NOT need a PayPal account).

6. Once payment, adoption contract, & age-appropriate vetting are complete, the new owners can pick up their pet! Adopters are required to bring their own leash & collar at pick-up.

Vetting records are sent by email 5-7 business days post-adoption, again, keep an eye on your email during this time, including your spam folder. Sometimes our emails get lost).

Adoption fees are non-negotiable or refunded.

Expect 5-7 business days for processing (more time may be needed to verify info requiring a response/verification).

We do not hold animals in care unless there is an age or medical-related situation to inhibit the adoption process with that animal.

Applications found to be dishonest or incomplete will be denied.

MSAR reserves the right to deny any application for any reason at any time. Rude, negative and harsh conduct towards MSAR volunteers will not be tolerated & will result in dismissal of an application.

Mending Spirits Animal Rescue will adopt to any location.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Applying or meeting an MSAR animal does not guarantee adoption. Expect & Respect that multiple applications for the same animal may occur & they may secure/finalize adoptive placement. Unfortunately, this means that sometimes we must redirect great people to another available animal or have to patiently wait for another – please don’t take that personally!

Meet all of MSAR'S adoption requirements, processes & adoption criteria.

Consider age-compatible matches, lifestyle, energy level, size, breed traits, & personalities when choosing a pet.

Renters- Only rental appropriate animals will be considered for adoptive placement within rental property or living situation applicant is not the property owner. Residence must allow pets & accept the pet applied for (exception: must verify medical reason exists to allow the pet, as stated by treating physician).
