I certify that the information given on this application is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. In understand that providing any false information can be cause for denial of my application or future forfeiture of the adopted pet. Leaving any question blank or not filling out this form completely can be cause for the application to be discarded or denied. By choosing to adopt, I understand that I am expected to make a considerate commitment of time and money to this animal for his/her lifetime, up to 20 years in some cases.
I understand that WHHS may make periodic house visits and /or telephone inquires to ensure the well-being of the animal I am adopting. I agree to cooperate full and thoughtfully with WHHS inquires and to allow WHHS to see my animal upon request. In understand that WHHS has the right to take possession of the animal, at its discretion, if during a visit WHHS determines that animal is not being properly cared for.
If the animal is not already spayed or neutered there is an additional $75.00 spay/neuter deposit that is refundable once we receive notice that the spay or neuter procedure is done by the date indicated on your health exam and spay/neuter contract.
“I understand the terms and conditions of this adoption and acceptable responsibility for its known and unknown health issues.”
