Please fill in the following section if you currently have a pet or multiple pets.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Although the screening process may seem excessively time-consuming, it is important to keep in mind that screening benefits potential adopters as much as it benefits the animals. Adoption screening increases the likelihood that you will adopt the animal that is right for you! Like humans, animals have unique personalities, backgrounds, temperaments and needs. Not every animal is appropriate for every home. Adoption applications and consultations are important tools in the decision making process. This form, along with a consultation with a SMARAS Representative are designed to help you find the dog most compatible with your lifestyle. SMARAS is responsible for helping potential adopters assess the compatibility of a companion animal.
I understand and accept that it is SMARAS’s prerogative to decide which home is most appropriate for the individual dog, and therefore I will not take issue with the decision. Unless otherwise indicated by SMARAS, I may be considered for another dog.
I HAVE READ THE ABOVE STATED APPLICATION CAREFULLY AND CERTIFY THAT THE INFORMATION I HAVE GIVEN IS ACCURATE AND TRUE. I UNDERSTAND THAT OMMISSION OF INFORMATION AND/OR FAILURE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS AND SIGN THE APPLICATION CAN RESULT IN THIS APPLICATION BEING DECLINED. ALSO, IF AN OMMISSION OR UNTRUTH IS DISCOVERED AFTER AN ADOPTION TAKES PLACE, I UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THAT SMARAS HAS THE RIGHT TO ANNUL THE ADOPTION AND RECLAIM THE DOG. I UNDERSTAND THAT IF THE PET IS RECLAIMED THERE WILL NOT BE A REFUND OF MONEY. I HAVE ALSO READ AND AGREE TO THE RETURN/EXCHANGE POLICY ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF THIS APPLICATION.
Thank you for your application!
A Southwest Metro Animal Rescue and Adoption Society representative will contact you shortly.
