Adoption Application

Pet ownership is a serious commitment that the entire household needs to consider and agree to, before the animal is adopted. We want to ensure that each adoptive household is aware of, willing and able to accept the physical and financial responsibilities of pet ownership. Not everyone who desires to own a pet is ready to properly care for one.

This questionnaire will assist both you and us in determining if your household is prepared to assume the role of responsible caretaker for a rescued animal.


By submitting this form, you acknowledge that you have completely read this application, comprehend it fully, and have answered the questions put before you with honesty.  You understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all questions can result in this application being declined. Also, if an omission or untruth is discovered after the adoption takes place, you understand that Dhana Metta Rescue Society reserves the right to annul the adoption and reclaim the pet.  If the animal is not spayed or neutered at adoption, the adopter is required to alter the animal and provide a veterinary certification of altering to Dhana Metta Rescue Society by the date specified in the adoption contract — animals unaltered by the contractual date may be reclaimed. In addition, each pet adoption is assessed a non-refundable donation, varying by animal to help pay veterinary/other expenses.

You give Dhana Metta Rescue Society permission to fully investigate the information provided as well as contact veterinarians and related officials.  If this application passes this review, you agree to a home and yard visit on a mutually agreed date.

You understand that the adoption decision is dependant on many factors including but not limited to the compatibility of the family and home to the individual pet, and other applications received on this pet.  You understand that it is Dhana Metta Rescue Society’s prerogative to decide which home is appropriate, and therefore you will not argue with the decision.
