Adoption Application

Here at LGAR it is our mission to ensure that our pets are being placed into homes that are prepared to take on all aspects and responsibilities of pet ownership; you must be willing and able to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper nourishment and care, and training for a pet. This application is the beginning of our process.  Should you feel that you are ready to be rewarded with the companionship of a rescued pet please fill out this questionnaire and return it to LGAR

Please provide detailed information for ALL questions.  Incomplete applications will not be processed.

Please note: You must be 23 years of age to adopt.  We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. Please be advised that we will not approve adoptions to persons who mislead or fail to provide accurate information on this application.  Incomplete applications will not be processed.

 

Adoption Fee 

 

Please note that the tax-deductible adoption donation must be paid BEFORE you pick-up your new pet.

Fee

The tax-deductible adoption donation covers micro-chipping, medical expenses, boarding fees, training fees, and costs involved in taking care of a dog or a cat until his/her fur-ever home is found. We rescue lots of animals with severe medical conditions and/or ones who take a long time to get adopted. We will cover all the associated expenses while a pet is in our care, whether it is weeks, months, or sometimes years.

Puppies (dogs under 1 year)

$450

Dogs over 1 year and under 25 lbs

$350

Please note:

Spay/Neuter:  Puppies under 20 weeks old will not be altered prior to transport to their new adoptive home. Dogs/Cats pulled directly from the shelter for adoption may or may not be altered prior to transport (depending on their health).   It will be the responsibility of the adopter to spay/neuter their pet.  The rescue will provide a spay/neuter certificate to be used toward the cost of the procedure.  It is up to the applicant to find a vet in their local area that will take this certificate.  Any additional fees will be paid by the adopter. 

Spay/Neuter Certificates:  Please use this link to find a veterinary practice near you that will accept this certificate:  https://www.friendsofanimals.org. We are happy to help our adopters find a veterinary center that is willing to provide a rescue rate for the procedure. 

In those situations, the rescue will require a spay/neuter deposit of $150, and allow the dog/cat to go with the adopter provided that the new adopter submit proof of the surgery to the rescue in return for their deposit. This is at the discretion of the rescue. Spay/neuter is expected to be performed within a months time or as soon as medically possible (whichever is sooner) to ensure the health of your new pet.

Transportation:  We provide transport for approved adopters throughout the Northeast however, we do request that adopters make all reasonable accommodations to meet our transporter in an agreed upon location if travel time exceeds 2 hours.  If that is not possible, we ask for a $50 tax-deductible donation toward gas and tolls to help offset the expense to the rescue.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
