I am at least 21 years old with a valid driver's license.
I have never been charged/convicted with any sort of animal abuse/cruelty.
I agree that if I can no longer keep the animal, I will contact Sunny Paws Rescue immediately. We will always accept the animal back into the rescue. However, the adoption fee is not refundable.
I agree that if a vet recommends euthanasia of the animal I will contact Sunny Paws before any final decision is made.
I understand that if the animal develops any health issues within the first 10 days after adoption, I will contact Sunny Paws and Sunny Paws will pay for any veterinarian expenses at one of our approved vets. Please contact Sunny Paws to make arrangements.
I understand I am responsible for all care of the dog after adoption, including any vaccinations the dog might need, monthly heartworm and flea treatment, veterinarian examinations, emergencies, etc.
I understand that a background check may be conducted.
I am aware that a new dog will need time (a few days to several weeks or months) to adjust to new routines, a new family and new surroundings. In addition, I am aware that the animal may need basic house training.
I agree to carefully introduce the new animal to the existing dogs and cats, children and household members.
I agree that I will never put the dog on a chain outside or have the animal live solely outside.
I certify that all household members are in agreement with adopting the dog and that any allergies to animals are taken into consideration before adoption.
I am aware that the dogs are fostered out of state. Before submitting this application, please understand that we are unable to offer a meet and greet before adoption. All of our dogs and puppies over the age of 6 months will be spayed/neutered before arrival and up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed and will come with health records and a health certificate.
By entering my name below, I certify that by all the information I have given is true and accurate, and I understand that any falsification may result in the nullification of an adoption.
Full Name (certifying above is accurate):
