PAWS Adoption Application: Please fill out completely and click submit
By signing below you are in agreement and compliance to our application process and agree that everything on this application is true. Providing false information herein will result in the forfeiture of any adoption. Pet ownership is a serious commitment that the entire household needs to consider and agree to before the animal is adopted. We want to ensure that each adoptive household is aware of and willing/able to accept the physical and financial responsibilities of pet ownership. Not everyone who desires a pet is ready to properly care for one. I understand all of the questions and have completely read the application. I understand that this PAWS animal MUST live indoors. Dogs cannot be chained/penned outside. I further understand that if for any reason I must give up this animal, PAWS must be contacted and the animal returned to PAWS. I also understand that a representative from PAWS may visit the animal to ensure it is well taken care of. If PAWS finds the animal has been neglected or abused in any way or for any reason, we reserve the right to remove the animal from the premises. Your signature/checkmark authorizes us to do so as necessary and automatically transfers ownership rights of said dog back to PAWS at that time.
Important Notice: PAWS makes no guarantees in reference to health and/or temperament of any animal. The animal is adopted “AS IS” and the adopter assumes responsibility for the treatment of all existing conditions or any other conditions of physical or temperament changes that may occur. While PAWS makes every effort to place only healthy animals, we cannot guarantee the health of any animal. PAWS shall not be held responsible for any medical expenses which may be incurred, hereby expressly excluding any implied or express warranties, merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose, including without limitation and warranties regarding health, temperament or whether the animal is housebroken. Any liability for animal bites and/or scratches will be yours as soon as guardianship of the animal is transferred to you. PAWS will not be held liable for any animal bite or scratch incidents after adoption. PAWS does not refund donations if the animal is returned. You may choose another animal if you feel there is one better suited to your home and needs. I agree to all the stated information on this adoption application/contract and understand this is a legally binding contract.
