Faithful Companions Dog Rescue Adoption Application

DOG AND PUPPY TRANSPORT INFORMATION

Faithful Companions Dog Rescue works closely with dog shelters in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Arkansas. To bring those dogs and puppies to the northeast, we use several USDA transports. Those transports DO NOT drop off in Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont and New York. For people living in those states, you must drive to a different state (not mentioned above) to pick up your animal.

BEFORE you fill out our application, please email Janice at faithfulcompanionsdogrescue@gmail.com. Let her know the name of the dog/puppy you are interested in and what state you live in. She will let you know where the pickup location is. Based on that information, you may decide not to adopt from us. That is okay. We get hundreds of applications every week and our time is very valuable. We don’t want to waste your time and ours.

I certify that the information I have supplied above is true and that any false statements may result in nullifying this application. I further understand that this application is the property of Faithful Companions Dog Rescue and will be retained by them. I also agree to contact a representative of the Faithful Companions Dog Rescue immediately for permission to return any animal I may adopt should I need to relinquish ownership of this animal at any time.

***Please note: Once we receive your application and you have been approved to adopt, we will put pending beside the dog’s name. You will have 24 hours to pay the adoption fee, or we will remove the pending status so others may have a chance to adopt the dog. The adoption fee MUST be paid in advance before we can transport the dog north.

Neither Faithful Companions Dog Rescue (FCDR) nor the rescue or shelter from which the adopted dog came, will be responsible for any health problems that arise after the adoption date. Standard protocol for each animal adopted has been provided, per our supporting veterinarians. Any dog that has been found to have any communicable health issues cannot travel to the northeast.

**Please note: We cannot guarantee the authenticity of the breed or the size of the puppy (when full grown), as this information is given to us by the shelters and rescues with whom we work.

Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in your area or mine. Therefore, it is not possible to meet the dogs and pups prior to their adoption. They are brought up north from the south on a USDA transporter.

Potty training is necessary for any dog of any age when acclimating to a new environment; please refer to www.aspca.org for some great basic tips for all dog owners when transitioning a new pet into the family.

Upon adoption, you will receive the transport schedule.
