Current or most recent veterinarian:
I am prepared to make a commitment for the lifetime of my dog and am financially able to provide routine and emergency care. This includes, but is not limited to food, vet care, heartworm preventative, flea/tick control, boarding and training.
I will work with my veterinarian to form a regular schedule for wellness visits, inoculations and any tests necessary for the health and well-being of my dog.
I will not chain or tie up my dog and leave him/her outside alone. My dog will be a companion, he/she will live inside of my home and be an important member of my family.
If, for any reason I am unable or unwilling to keep my dog, I agree to return him/her to the HSOC. I will not give away or sell my dog. I will not surrender my dog to a different shelter or place with any other person without the express permission of the HSOC.
I understand and agree that the HSOC makes no guarantee regarding my dog's temperament and is not liable for any future damages or injuries caused by my dog.
I understand and agree that my dog is adopted "as is" with no guarantee whether implied or expressed. Any health condition unknown by the HSOC at time of adoption is not the responsibility of the HSOC.
I give the HSOC permission to call/visit my home with reasonable notice to ensure my dog is being properly cared for.
I agree to keep the HSOC informed of my current address and phone number. I agree to license my dog within 30 days of adoption in the county where I reside.
I understand that the adoption fee is non-refundable after 2 weeks. If the adoption doesn't work out within 2 weeks I will return this dog to the HSOC upon which I will receive a full refund. If longer than 2 weeks is needed to decide the success of the adoption, I will call the HSOC to make those arrangements in a timely manner.
