Adoption Process

Adopting a new pet is an exciting and lifelong commitment. Everything we do at Countryside Animal Rescue prepares our pets for a successful adoption and a healthy, happy relationship for you and your new family member.

Adoption Guidelines:

   *  An Adoption Application must be completed.

  *  We may ask for proof of Landlord permission if you rent.

  *  Our Adoption counselor will review your application, get to know you and determine 

     which dog will be perfect match for your family.

  *  Adoption fees are paid when adoption is finalized.

  *  All adoption fees collected assist in the daily care and ongoing needs of our animals.

  *  We offer a Foster 2 Adopt program for various situations. For example, if you have   

      another pet or children, we want to be sure everyone gets along. This two week program will

      give both you and your foster animal time to get know each other and see if it is a             

      compatible match. We will be checking in with you after the first week, and are available for

      support through the entire process. At the culmination of these two weeks; you may choose

      to formally adopt. There is a $50.00 foster fee which is deducted from the adoption fee if

      you choose to adopt.

  *  In some cases, we may allow you to take a dog home before they have been spayed or 

     neutered. We expect that you will cooperate with us to complete the surgery as soon as it   

     can be scheduled. Spay/Neuter Agreement must be signed when adoption is finalized.

  *  Our rescue operation is very small. We welcome the opportunity to schedule visits with you, 

      especially if you are interested in adoption or volunteering with us (as a foster, at events, or


  *  Our time is precious to us in caring for our animals. Please do your absolute best to honor

      the scheduled visit time, and try to limit the length of your visit.

​  *  The health of our dogs is of the utmost importance. All known previous medical findings

      are disclosed to potential adopters. We suggest scheduling an appointment with your

      veterinarian as soon as  possible after adoption to start a relationship between your new

      dog and your vet.  All of our dogs are adopted ‘as is’ and all future veterinary care is the

      responsibility of the adopter.

  *  Please understand that all adoptions are first-come-first-served for qualified adopters, and

      that we are unable to hold dogs for potential adopters.
