DOG Adoption Application

This is the pre-adoption application for dogs. If you are interested in a cat please go to our cat application by clicking here!

 

 

BEFORE FILLING OUT AN APPLICATION Please read the full description of our adoption process and policies at  tailsrescue.org/info/adoption

Please Note:  Due to the nature of our rescue and so many animals needing our help, we ask that our adoption applicants be ready to adopt at the time they submit an application. Our adoptions do move quickly.  Please take into consideration your schedule, planned vacations, and personal commitments before submitting an application. 

In most cases, you will be contacted and interviewed within 48 hours of submitting an application.

 

Thank you for considering adopting an animal from Happy Tails Rescue! We aim to match the needs and temperaments of our dogs and cats to the adoptive home. This application will help us determine whether a particular animal will be an appropriate match to ensure happy animals and guardians! Submitting an application does not guarantee adoption of a particular animal. We will do our best to help you find the appropriate companion for your home. 

 

Do I have to fill out multiple applications if I am interested in a few animals or if my first choice doesn't work out? Yes! Please fill out an application for each animal you are interested in. 

 

***Many of our dogs and cats receive multiple applications  and it is our mission to find the perfect home for every dog and perfect dog for every home! Please understand that choosing between apps is often difficult.

 

***Our Adoption fees for dogs generally range from $400-$600. For cats they are typically $200-$250.  Please inquire for specifics. Fees must be paid in full upon adoption. To learn more about our fees and what they go towards please read the FAQ on the left side of our website under "Pages of Interest" We cannot accept cash or checks for adoption fees, at our adoption center we can take credit/debit cards or payments can be made with PayPal at the time of adoption.

 

***Any animals currently in the household must be spayed or neutered and be up to date on shots.

 

***Proof of enrollment in training is required for ALL dog adoptions. A few of our dogs require specific training classes. It will be noted in their profile on our website. Please read our FAQ on the left side of the page for more info on this!   tailsrescue.org/info/display?PageID=18280

 

Prior to any dog adoption, a Pre-Adoption Application must be completed and a home visit conducted. A home video tour is used in most cases. At the time of adoption, the applicable adoption fee must be paid and a legally binding contract signed. Home visits do depend on volunteer availability if you live outside the Twin Cities area. 

 

Please Note:  Due to the nature of our rescue and so many animals needing our help, we ask that our adoption applicants be ready to adopt at the time they submit an application. Our adoptions do move quickly.  Please take into consideration your schedule, planned vacations, and personal commitments before submitting an application.
