How To Adopt A Tiny Paws Dog
Our dogs available for adoption can be viewed here, at Petfinder.com or at Adopt-A-Pet.
If there is a dog listed that you are interested in applying to adopt, please email us (email address: email@example.com) to request an information sheet about the dog and an adoption application.
The completed application may be returned by email or faxed, but the original copy with an original signature must be mailed via regular mail to the address on the application. We process applications in the order in which they are received.
When we receive the application, a volunteer will contact the three references (a vet reference and two personal references) listed.
Once the references are completed and reviewed, we will contact you to arrange a home visit, and will come to your home and bring the dog you are interested in adopting so that you can interact with the dog in your environment (this is done whenever possible unless geography presents an issue). All members of the household must be present for the home visit.
A home visit report is completed and submitted to our Board of Directors for approval of the adoption. At the time of adoption, the adopter will receive an adoption contract, vetting information about their new dog and a receipt for the adoption fee. All approved adopters must provide a tag with their contact information for their new dog’s collar on the adoption day.
Our adoption fees include all the vetting the dog required in our care. Adoption fees are based on the age of the dog being adopted:
Under 3 years of age - $375
3-8 years of age - $350
Over 9 years of age - $250
