CANINE CRUSADERS ADOPTION POLICY
Because of the difficult beginnings with which our animals have been faced, it is our goal to find them a happy ending. Not only do we not want them to end up back on the street, we want them to have the loving homes they so deserve. In order to provide this for these animals, our adoption process consists of several easy but thorough steps.
-If you're interested in an animal, we ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a perfect match!
-Once that match has been made, we'll do a home inspection and then a home delivery of the animal. Sometimes this can all take place within the same day, however it usually happens with a couple of days. This is due to the fact that we don't have enough volunteers to run adoptions and do home checks all at once!
-There is generally no waiting period. However, Canine Crusaders reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if we feel that the home situation or adoptive family have been misrepresented, if all information was not given, or if we feel that perhaps the dog is a better match with another family.
-Now that your pet is anxiously awaiting its new family, a $250 donation is required for adult dogs and a $350 donation is required for puppies and pure-bred dogs! Also, you must sign the Adoption Agreement. The donation covers spaying/neutering, vaccinations to date, de-worming, de-fleaing, grooming, socialization, micro-chipping and room and board. The adoption fees goes to pay for all the other animals in our care, MANY of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Canine Crusaders survives solely on adoption donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fees mentioned above are non-negotiable.
-When you adopt a Canine Crusaders pet your new family member will always be current on all vaccinations and of course be neutered or spayed.
-We offer a two-week grace period for all dogs, at which time you may receive a full refund of your money. For all puppies, 50% of the fee is refundable. Due to our lack of space and volunteers, we may need you to continue to foster the animal until we can find a suitable and loving replacement home. At no time may you sell your adopted pet, give him away to strangers, take him to the pound, give or sell him to research, or euthanize him for anything other than a terminal medical condition.
