PET ADOPTION APPLICATION
Adoption Ad Sponsorship Pledge Form
One of the primary functions of The Humane Society is to find homes for orphan cats and dogs. Although we are eager to find homes, we are cautious to find “adopters” who will provide a caring atmosphere for the animals. As a result, it is incumbent upon the prospective adopter to display a certain level of responsibility before an application is accepted. Also, the Society retains the right to revoke an adoption if it is determined that an adopter is not living up to the responsibilities to the animals as outlined by the Society. Here is what you should expect before you take on this responsibility.
The adopter is responsible for having the pet surgically sterilized within a specified time period if it has not been done at adoption time.
The pet should be taken for a veterinary checkup within 7 days of adoption. Any vaccinations, worming or other medical procedures required will be the responsibility of the adopter.
The pet must be licensed by the appropriate city and county agencies.
While in adopter’s care, the pet must be provided with adequate food, water, shelter, exercise and medical care in a devoted and humane manner.
The pet must be kept primarily as a house pet, meaning it will reside in the house. Tethering periods may not exceed nine hour intervals and during these periods, the pet must be within range of shelter and water at all times.
The Society retains the right to investigate the premises at any time and to reclaim the pet in the event that the adopter can no longer adequately care for it according to Society standards. If a pet is lost, the adopter must notify the Society and must make every effort to recover it.
