How did you hear about us?
By submitting this application, I certify that the information I have given is true and that any misrepresentation of facts may result in my losing the privilege of adopting a companion animal from The Last Dog Rescue. This dog will reside in my home as a pet. I will provide it with adequate food, water, shelter, training, affection and medical care. If the dog is not spayed/neutered at the time of adoption due to age, I agree to spay or neuter the dog as soon as medically necessary and forward evidence of such to The Last Dog Rescue by the date requested. I agree to return the dog to The Last Dog Rescue if I am no longer able to care for the dog .I am in full agreement with these terms of adoption. The Last Dog Rescue is in no way liable or responsible for any damage, accident or injury resulting from the placement of a dog in my household. I understand that there is a $325 adoption donation to help offset pulling fees and vet fees. Additional transportation costs may apply based on my location.
We thoroughly screen all of our adopters to ensure the dog will have a safe and loving home for the rest of its life. The process my seem extensive, but The Last Dog Rescue has the dogs safety and secure home at heart.

The process is as follows:

  • completion of an application
  • phone interview
  • veterinary reference & personal references
  • home visit
  • adoption fee of $ 350 which offsets vetting and transporting our rescue dogs. All dogs are given a microchip witth a lifetime subscription 
  • adoption agreement
