Everyone in the applicant’s household must be in favor of adopting a dog.
If renting, the applicant’s landlord must give permission for the applicant to have a dog. Some rental offices require that the dog be a certain size or breed.
All pets the applicant currently has must be up-to-date on their vaccinations and spayed/neutered.
Applicants must agree to a home visit, in which a volunteer will come to the applicant’s home to conduct part of the interview and make sure the home is a good fit for the dog. This is to benefit the adopter and the rescue; some dogs are very high energy and require a lot of space. We want to make sure the dog you are connected with is appropriate for you.
If you live outside the Fargo-Moorhead area, we may be able to conduct a virtual video visit to fulfill this step of your application. However, applications outside our area of operation may still be denied due to distance.
To expedite the processing of your application:
Ask your references to return our call or email as soon as they can.
Attach your veterinary records showing your pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations.
