Are you willing to have an ODAAT representative come to see where the cat will be living?
I am willing to accept immediate & full responsibility for ownership of the pet. I agree to properly license the adopted pet(s) and follow all local and state regulations regarding pet ownership and control. I agree to provide the pet with yearly veterinarian exams and follow their suggested vaccinations, dental work, etc. I agree to keep the adopted pet up to date on vaccinations. I agree to provide the pet with a safe and loving home, food, water, shelter, and sufficient exercise. I agree to always bring my animal into my home at night or anytime I am unable to supervise it so my animal can be safe. In the unlikely event that I adopt a pet that is not already spayed/neutered due to medical reasons, I agree to never breed or expose the pet to unaltered animals. I agree to never abandon the animal under any circumstances to fend for itself. I agree to never leave any animal unattended outside. I agree to NOT keep any animal outside, including chained or in a pen/kennel while I am not home, unsupervised or any prolonged period of time. I agree to never euthanize the pet unless the veterinarian recommends euthanasia because of tremendous suffering. I agree to keep and consider this pet as a companion and part of the family; not as a disposable item. I agree to arrange for boarding and proper daily care in the absence of its owner(s), such as vacations., ODAAT has assessed the animal to the best of it's abilities, however, I understand that ODAAT has had this animal for a limited amount of time and makes no representation that the animal is free from characteristics or propensities that could be a source of danger to humans, other animals, or property. I agree to never surrender the pet to a third party without the express written approval of ODAAT. I understand that while ODAAT takes every precaution to assure the health of its animals, no guarantee can be given regarding the condition of the animal I have adopted and the adoption is a life-time commitment. I understand that I will be asked to give a non-refundable fee to ODAAT to help with the spaying/neutering and veterinary care of current and/or future rescued dogs. I agree to surrender the pet to ODAAT if, in the opinion of two ODAAT representatives, the animal is not being cared for properly, such as being neglected, abused, or not receiving proper veterinary care or any reason that ODAAT deems as being cared for properly. Also, if 2 or more of the ODAAT Representatives feel that the animal once placed into the adoptive home, is not adjusting well to the new home environment or dynamics, that the dog must be returned to ODAAT and the adopter will be given a full refund of the adoption fee. I have reviewed my application carefully and have read, understand, and agree to all the above conditions.
I agree to all of the following: I am 21 years or older. I can provide identification showing my present address. If I rent, I have the knowledge and consent of my landord. If I am adopting, I am able and willing to spend time and money neccessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for a pet. If I am fostering, I am able and willing to spend the time necessary to care for a pet.*
