By submitting this form I certify that the information I have given is true and that any misrepresentation of facts may result in my losing the privilege of adopting.  This dog will reside in my home as a pet. I will provide it with adequate food, water, shelter, training, affection and medical care. If the dog is not spayed/neutered at the time of adoption due to age, I agree to spay or neuter the dog as soon as medically necessary and forward evidence of such to Pet Rescue Team by the date requested. I am in full agreement with these terms of adoption.  Pet Rescue Team is in no way liable or responsible for any damage, accident or injury.  I understand that there is a NONREFUNDABLE adoption fee to help offset pulling fees and veterinary expenses.  
Pet Rescue Team reserves the right to refuse or deny any application and/or adoption.  Approved applications are valid for 30 days; any approved applicant will need to re-apply if they do not adopt a dog within that time period.  Pet Rescue Team also reserves the right to rescind approval at any time.
