Dog Adoption Application Adoption Application We appreciate it when all human and canine members of the family attend the event to meet the dogs. If you have a resident dog or dogs please bring him/her/them with so they can meet their prospective new canine sibling! We understand that this is not always possible and it is not a requirement, but we do give preference to families with all members present. Please understand that we do not adopt on a first come-first served basis. We work very hard to choose the home that is best suited to the dog and family Name* First Last Address* Street Address Address Line 2 City AlabamaAlaskaArizonaArkansasCaliforniaColoradoConnecticutDelawareDistrict of ColumbiaFloridaGeorgiaHawaiiIdahoIllinoisIndianaIowaKansasKentuckyLouisianaMaineMarylandMassachusettsMichiganMinnesotaMississippiMissouriMontanaNebraskaNevadaNew HampshireNew JerseyNew MexicoNew YorkNorth CarolinaNorth DakotaOhioOklahomaOregonPennsylvaniaRhode IslandSouth CarolinaSouth DakotaTennesseeTexasUtahVermontVirginiaWashingtonWest VirginiaWisconsinWyomingArmed Forces AmericasArmed Forces EuropeArmed Forces Pacific State ZIP Code Email* Home Phone*Cell PhoneWork PhoneOccupation*Type of Home*Single Family HomeApartmentCondoTown HouseMobile Home (Trailer)Do you rent or own your home?*RentOwnIf renting, please provide your landlord's name and phone number*Safe Hands verifies with all landlords before adopting a pet to their tenantsIf renting, are pets allowed?*YesNoLength of time at current residence?*Do you plan to move within one year?
