The purpose of our Adoption Program is to place a dog in a responsible home where it will:
- Receive veterinary care when needed.
- Not add to the pet overpopulation problem.
- Be controlled so it will not roam free in the neighborhood.
- Be happy with its owner and the owner happy with the dog.
In order to accomplish this goal, the Shiloh Shepherd Rescue & Rehome has established these standards and guidelines. Please read them carefully and make sure that you are willing to abide by them before filling out the Adoption Application.
- ADOPTERS WILL ALLOW FOR A MINIMUM OF 30 DAYS adjustment period for the animal to adjust to his new environment and family.
- ANIMALS WILL BE PLACED WITH ADULTS to be kept as a companion animals. They are to be accepted as family members, receiving proper nourishment, medical care and attention. Continuous outdoor confinement is not acceptable.
- A FENCED YARD IS IDEAL FOR ALL DOGS. This protects the dog from roaming and owners from liability their loose animal may cause. Dogs should never be left unattended in a yard. Chaining is not acceptable. Dogs will not be placed in homes where they will be allowed to run at large. A Shiloh Rescue representative may visit your residence to confirm proper confinement requirements.
- ADOPTERS MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE. Identification is required to adopt any pet. All adults in the household must agree to the selection of the chosen pet.
- ANIMALS CANNOT BE ADOPTED AS GIFTS. Animals shall not be given away or sold to another individual. They must be returned to the Rescue if the adopter can no longer keep and care for the animal properly.
- PERMISSION OF THE LANDLORD IS REQUIRED of persons living on rental property. The landlord or rental agency will be notified personally.
- ALL ANIMALS MUST HAVE COLLARS with owner identification tags, rabies and license tags. If your animal is lost, a tag may be the only way to have your animal returned to you.
- CURRENTLY OWNED ANIMALS MUST BE UP-TO-DATE ON VACCINATIONS. Your veterinarian may be contacted to verify your pet’s health record.
- MICROCHIPPING. We highly recommend that you have your dog(s) micro-chipped so that in the event of an accidental loss, your pet can be returned to you safely. We request that if you microchip a rescue dog, that you list the Shiloh Rehome Center as one of the contact.
