ADOPTION AGREEMENTS


Anyone who adopts through Rescue Ranch is required to sign an adoption agreement that sets out the terms of the adoption. The agreement exists to protect the interests of the dog and to ensure that should the adopter be unable to care for or retain the dog at any time in the future, the adopter would return the dog to Rescue Ranch and would not ever transfer the dog to another party without authorization from Rescue Ranch.
