The Humans In Your Home
Have the children in the home lived with dogs before/have experience being around dogs? Have the experiences been positive for the children? What size/energy level, etc. are the children most comfortable with?
We understand everybody’s
schedule can vary each week. Please give us a general idea of what the
average week’s schedule would be like for your dog.
Dogs making the transition from shelter to a new home need time to adjust to a new environment and family and may require behavior training.
What qualities are you looking for in your new dog?
Lighthouse Animal Shelter works with applicants to select the best match between dog and family, rather than adopting on a first come, first serve basis to increase the likelihood of a successful adoption experience.
The shelter reserves the right to refuse the adoption of any animal.
Please remember that your new dog should never be left around children unsupervised, and that your new dog needs to be kept in a secure fenced in yard, or on
a leash when not inside, until they are well-bonded to you, know their territory, and is consistent in coming when called. Most rescue dogs will need to go through
an initial adjustment period. They may have accidents, bark or whine, chew, and/or need to learn to get along with other dogs and/or cats in the household.
Our adoption fee is $450.00 (with a discount on senior dogs) which helps to cover the expenses incurred in the dog’s rescue. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing, and flea/tick & heartworm preventatives and de-worming while in our care, transport, boarding and other misc. expenses, and in most cases a microchip.
Providing false information or withholding information on this application could result in denial for adoption and/pr immediate return of the
animal to Lighthouse Animal Shelter.
