are about to fill out an application for a Homeward Bound
dog or puppy. Please take your time in doing this and make
sure you fill in as much information as possible. If you leave
blanks it makes it very difficult for us to process your application.
Please understand that we cannot process your application
if you do not take the time to fill one out properly.
Pay particular attention to your references including phone
It is most important that you include a vet
reference and phone number for that vet. We will check with
them to make sure your current pet or pets you have had in
the past are up to date on their shots. If you have a legitimate
reason as to why your pet is not up to date, please feel free
to explain it in your application.
We will get back to you within three days of receiving your
application even if it is only to say that we received it.
We will check your references and then schedule a home visit.
If you do not hear from us in three days, please e-mail us
as we may not have received your application.
We are an all volunteer organization and we do our very best
to respond to every e-mail, application, phone call, fax,
letter and question that we receive. Please keep in mind that
we are all working on this for the same end purpose - to find
our foster dogs good homes. Be patient with us - we will get
to you as soon as we can.
We will make every attempt to answer any question that you
have about our process or a particular dog. However, we will
answer questions from people who have filled out applications
If you find another dog from another organization, please
be courteous and let us know. This way we don't keep you in
our database and bug you at a later date.
Our current fees are $250 for dogs over 24 months old and
$350 for puppies/dogs up to 24 months, which covers part of
our out-of-pocket expenses. At times due to the nature of
rescue work we do not know exact history of each dog, so we
use the information we have to make our best determination
of age. The adoption fee is based on our understanding of
the dog's age, which you should be comfortable with at the
time of adoption. You are welcome to give more as part of
a donation but please do not ask us to take less - every penny
goes to help save another dog and none of us are paid to do
this - we do this to help great dogs find loving homes.
As far as we are concerned, our dogs are worth a million dollars
each so you are getting a bargain.
Thank you for helping us to help you make the application
a streamlined process.
