How did you hear about Island Dog Rescue?
Why do you want to adopt through Island Dog Rescue?
Is there anything else you would like to tell us to help us match the right dog for you?
Do you agree to have this dog spayed or neutered? (If not already done - and understand that you will be financially responsible for this)
Do you agree to provide licensed veterinary care for your dog?
Do you agree this will be an "indoor dog"
Do you agree to return this dog to IDR if at any point you are no longer able to keep him/her?
Please acknowledge that you are not permitted to take the dog or puppy to dog parks, pet stores, schools or other public venues until the adoption process is finalized
Do you agree to have the puppy/dog seen by a veterinarian within one week of the adoption?
Are you willing to seek professional training to address problematic behaviors should they develop? (Island Dog Rescue can provide recommendations)
Do you acknowledge that if the adopted dog/puppy is not already sterilized, you will have this done by the age of 6 months (or within one month of adopting if the dog is already 6 months).
Do you acknowledge that the full adoption donation must be paid before you take the dog home with you (or before we transport a dog out of area). If after 3 days you find the dog is not a good fit for you we will refund minus the $100 non-refundable deposit. For out of area adoptions, additional travel fees may be non-refundable as well. (note: all adoption fees are tax-deductible)

Do you certify that nobody living in the home has been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect or abandonment?
All of the information I have given is true and complete. This dog will reside in my home as my pet. I will provide it with quality dog food, plenty of fresh water, indoor shelter, affection, annual physical exams and vaccinations under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian.
