There are several pages to this and the questions asked help us determine what sort of home you can provide for the rescue dog. We evaluate each family and each dog separately. There is no one question or answer that is ‘make-or-break.'
You will be asked to provide a vet reference and 3 personal references. We will contact these references to help us get to know you better as a pet owner.
One of our Carolina R&R members (or a trusted person representing us) will visit your home to see how the dog would fit into your environment. This gives us a chance to look at the family and the home where the dog will be spending the rest of his life.
4. Meeting the Foster Dog
If possible, we would like you to meet the dog on neutral territory or at his foster home. You can see if this is the dog that you’d like to make a lifetime commitment to and it gives us a chance to see how you and the dog interact. You can ask questions about the dog and see how the dog fits into his foster home. Although this not required, we recommend this step and will work with you to find a time and place satisfactory to all.
This is a simple document that states you accept the dog on our conditions and that you will treat the dog fairly and with kindness. You will sign and date this document.
Puppies & Young Adults: $350
Adult Dogs: $275
Special Needs: To be determined on a case by case basis
You will save money – adoption costs less than buying a cattle dog from a pet shop or breeder.
If you adopt a young adult or older cattle dog, you can avoid many of the hassles related to house training and teething. Puppies are cute but they require lots of attention, training, patience! An older dog might fit in better with your family and lifestyle than a rambunctious cattle dog puppy would!
You will be saving a life. By adopting from a rescue, you will be helping to save another cattle dog by making a place for another foster.
Forever loved. Forever yours. Forever home.
