FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION
The first step is to fill out an adoption application. This application form will tell us about the applicant and interest.
APPLICATION PRELIMINARY REVIEW
Our application review volunteers will initially screen the application to determine if applicant qualifies to adopt our puppies. We usually reply under 6 hours
MEETING BETWEEN APPROVED APPLICANT
Once an applicant has been approved, a volunteer our team will contact them about scheduling a time to meet the dog(s) they are interested in. This meeting may occur at the applicant’s home, online, via email or text messaging, upon which more information will be obtained. Approved adopters are NOT guaranteed a particular dog of interest unless requirement are met. Our main goal is to find a home that will be a good fit for each dog. Our Adoption Coordinator works closely with our foster homes to determine if an approved application can meet the specific needs of the dog in which they are interested. The first approved application that is appropriate for the dog’s needs will have the first opportunity to meet the dog. If the volunteer involved in the meeting with the applicant and the dog, does not feel the home is a good fit for the dog, that applicant may be denied adoption of that particular dog but may still be allowed to adopt another dog. Some dogs receive multiple applications and we will not hold dogs or allow extended time frames for the potential adopters to decide whether they want to move forward with an adoption. We can set up multiple meets with or discuss options, but we will want to avoid any delays for the best interest of the dog and for other potential adopters
If the applicant has decided upon a dog to adopt, the applicant is required to sign an adoption contract and to provide payment of the adoption donation fee and spay/neuter deposit if necessary. At that time the adopter becomes the owner of the dog. If needed, our organization can provide a kennel/crate, food/water bowls, leash and collar to use for two weeks. We may also provide a small supply of dog food that will allow the adopter to transition the dogs diet to another food. We have a two week refund period meaning if you decide the dog is not a good fit for your family and you return him/her within the two week refund period we will return your adoption donation to you. The adoption fee will be deposited upon receipt and refunded only if the adopted dog is returned within the two week refund period (or any prior agreed upon extension of the refund period).
OPTIONAL POST ADOPTION FOLLOW-UP VISIT
Our adoption contract contains a clause that allows one of our volunteers or a representative the ability to perform a follow-up visit. We may require such a visit if we feel that the terms of the adoption contract are not being met. Marrosfancydogranch Pet Rescue is committed to the life, health and well being of every dog we place for the remainder of that dog’s life. Should the adoption not work out or if the dog needs to be rehomed, we require, by contract, that the dog be returned to us
