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, as we will check in 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 a final adoption is approved.

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.

 

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.  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 send you an e-mail of your pre-approval. Should a dog come up for adoption in the future, you do not need to re-apply, just send us an email to tmaradoptions@gmail.com stating that you are pre-approved and would like to be considered for a specific dog. A home visit will be set up at that time to determine if that dog is a good fit for your family. Pre-approved applicants will have priority for all newly available dogs listed for adoption. 

 

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 check in with your veterinarian and references before we get back to you.

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