Dog Adoption Policy
Desert Paws Dog Adoption Policy
It is the policy of Desert Paws Rescue that all potential dog adopters complete the Dog Adoption Consultation Form and complete an interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our dogs and puppies.
Desert Paws Rescue will determine the best home for each dog or puppy based on the application and interview process. After review of the adoption consultation form and the completion of the interview with the Adoption Coordinator, Desert Paws Rescue may recommend a different dog or puppy that is more suitable to your household.
Completion of the application and interview process does not guarantee an adoption approval or guarantee the adoption of a particular dog or puppy. Desert Paws Rescue is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog or puppy, based on our principles, policies, and standards.
Please read the following instructions carefully.
1. Please fill out all pages of the Desert Paws Rescue Dog Adoption Consultation Form as completely as possible. The submission of a complete form will expedite the review process.
2. After the form has been completed, please print a copy of the completed form for your files. An email will automatically be sent to the Adoption Coordinator and they will contact you as soon as possible. You may also choose to download a blank form, fill it out by hand, and fax to (480) 287-9541.
At Desert Paws Rescue, we believe there is a home for every dog and puppy we foster. Our foster program provides us the opportunity to evaluate the behavior of our dogs and puppies in a family environment, allows us to address any unwanted behavioral issues, and allows us to provide adoptive parents with all the information necessary to make an informed adoption decision and insure that their new dog or puppy will be a good match with their family.
