Congratulations on deciding to adopt your new family member!Thank you for choosing adoption. There are so many pets looking for their forever homes. Here at 4 Dogs Farm Rescue it is our responsibility to ensure that each dog we place is in the right environment and completely compatible with their new family. This ensures that they never again find themselves seeking a loving home. The adoption process begins with an application.

4 Dogs Farm Rescue Adoption Process
Fill out our applicationand email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
After we receive it, we'll contact you by phone or email with feedback within 1-3 days
You may be invited to meet the dog once we have reviewed your application and spoken with you by phone.
If, after the initial meet and greet, it feels like a match, we'll arrange a home visit with one of our knowledgeable volunteers.
You may then be invited to take the dog home under our foster contract, and the dog will be marked "Adoption Pending" on websites.
During the foster/adopt period, there will be home visits to see how dog and family are adjusting. The foster/adopt period may be anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, longer in special cases. We do not put a time frame on proper introductions and adjustments. Each dog is unique and may respond differently to new environments and situations.
Once the dog is responding well to you and your family and pets, and 4 Dogs Farms Rescue feels it is a match, you'll sign an adoption contract, and pay the agreed upon adoption fee.
In return for all the dog screening and home screening, the rescue and you can feel confident that the dog you take home is a pet you're fully prepared to adopt and make a member of your family. Our team will stay available to you for the life of your pet should any questions or concerns come up. If this sounds like an adventure you're ready to commit to, we'd love to hear from you!
