Thank you for your interest in our dogs! An application must be submitted and approved before you can adopt a dog from Canine Lifeline. The application is below. We do not do same day adoptions at any of our adoption events. As part of the approval process, a phone interview will also be required. After you submit your application, you will receive an automatic email which includes a copy of your answers. A Canine Lifeline representative will touch base with you shortly. We do our best to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours of receiving them.
Please note that our response to you may not come from a Canine Lifeline email account. Often times replies are made directly by the person fostering the dog from their personal email account. If you don't see a reply within the 24 hour time frame, please double check your spam folder first. If you find nothing there, then please send an email inquiry to: email@example.com.
Heartworms are spread by mosquitos so all dogs are at risk of contracting this potentially fatal disease. All of our dogs are on monthly heartworm preventative year-round and all of our adopters must sign a contract agreeing to continue this practice along with regular testing.
In addition to the adoption fee, first time dog owners will be required to submit a $100 heartworm deposit. The $100 deposit is fully refundable after the adopter has taken the dog to a qualified veterinarian clinic for a general health check, and to purchase a 6 month supply of heartworm preventative. This must be done within two weeks after the adoption is finalized. A refund check will be mailed to the adopter after confirmation of the vet visit and heartworm preventative purchase.
By submitting this application you declare all of the information is complete and truthful and you authorize Canine Lifeline to contact veterinarians and landlords to investigate all statements in this application. You certify that you are at least 18 years of age.
You understand that misrepresentation on this application is just cause for any adoption based on this information to be considered null and void. You are aware that dogs are often unpredictable and that Canine Lifeline makes no guarantee as to the behavior or temperament of the dogs made available for adoption. You, your family and your friends understand that you will be visiting with these dogs at your own risk.
