you relinquish ownership and all rights to the dog. We require that you
sign a surrender contract, and that you disclose any medical problems
and/or behavior problems that your dog has had.
All dogs that come to us are spayed/neutered if they are intact, and are
brought current on their vaccinations. We treat any identified medical
condition. Because we exist on donations, we ask that you make a surrender
donation to help cover these costs.
The more information you can give us about your dog, the better a job we
can do in placing him/her in an appropriate new home. We will ask you to
write a few paragraphs about your dog, so that we can help the new family
to make him/her feel secure and welcome.
Your dog will be evaluated, and when we deem the dog ready for adoption,
he or she will be made available for adoption. We do our best to match up
our dogs with the perfect applicant, based on the temperament,
characteristics, and behavior of the dog.
