Dog Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog from Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue. Please read the following closely and answer the following questions.

It may take us up to 1-3 weeks to process your application.

Applicant is under no obligation to adopt a dog, and Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue is under no obligation to provide a dog to applicant. TMAR reviews all applications and will pick the applicant that is the best fit for the dog. Dogs may be suggested to the applicant based on this application and may differ from dogs requested if we believe that a different dog would be a better match.

All current animals in the home MUST be up to date on all appropriate vaccinations and be spayed or neutered unless there is a medical reason verified by your veterinarian’s office.
Please call your vet and obtain a copy of up to date vaccinations and proof of spay/neuter for each animal PRIOR to completing the application. NO NOT APPLY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A COPY OF THESE RECORDS.

Any application that has current pets that are not up to date (excluding medical reasons) will not be considered and removed without notice.

Once you have adopted you will be asked to arrange appropriate transportation to pick up your dog up at it’s foster home or an agreed upon meeting place within 7 days of adoption. We do not provide transportation to adopted homes.

If you are approved to adopt a TMAR dog but did not get the dog you initially requested, we will keep your approved application on file for 1 year should a dog come up for adoption in the future, you do not need to re-apply, just send us an email to stating that you are pre-approved and would like to be considered for a specific dog.

Please let your references know that we will be calling. Adoptions will not be approved without completed reference checks. TMAR reserves the right to request additional references and complete a background check.
Please know that we are a 100% volunteer organization and it may take a few days to a few weeks to fully process your application, as we will also verify with your veterinarian and references before we get back to you. Please note that all applicants are required to go through a live interview and home visit before being approved to adopt dogs.

Applications will only be considered after receiving the application deposit for each applicant and not before.

By filling out this application I certify that I am 18 years of age or older. I own my own home or have a rental agreement under my name.
