Adoption Application

Thank you for our interest

We ask that you please complete this application as thoroughly as possible, as this information will be used in determining optimal and appropriate suitability between you and our pets. Please note: we maintain the right to conduct an inspection of the applicant’s home environment as part of the application process. Furthermore, we reserve the right to refuse an applicant based on the information provided, as well as the results of the application process, with or without disclosure of cause. In the event that we discover that any information entered on this application has been knowingly falsified we will reclaim possession of the adopted pet.

PLEASE NOTE: We require a donation for each adopted pet to help defray the costs of veterinary care for our rescued pets. Each pet’s specific adoption donation will be noted in the pet’s profile. Also, at the time of adoption, you will be required to sign a contract committing to the care of the pet, and a rescue volunteer will be responsible for confirming that you have visited a vet and obtained heartworm preventative within the time allotted. FOHA reserves the right to deny any application based on the information provided as well as the results of the entire application process.

If we cannot get the pet you are interested in, your deposit is refunded. If you are not approved to adopt, your deposit is refunded. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND FOR ANY REASON, YOUR DEPOSIT IS NOT REFUNDED! Normally we do not process applications unless you select a specific pet and make a deposit of $200 as we are all volunteers and limited resources – your deposit tells us you are serious and ready to adopt.

This online application is intended for use for all FOHA pets- dogs, cats and small animals. However, if you are applying for a courtesy posted pet, FOHA will forward your information to the person that requested the courtesy posting.
