Dogs Available for adoption:
Many rescue dogs have special needs that may require extra love and patience from their new homes. Many, if not most, have not had positive experiences with humans in their past, so they spend time in foster care, to learn and unlearn what they need to become beloved family members. Rescue dogs require special patience and care to get adjusted in your home. But each has their own story of how they came to be Im-Paws-Able pups and their own success story of how they came to be loved by you!
Adopting from Im-Paws-Able requires you to complete ALL of the steps in the following rescue process outlined below.
Step 1: Complete the adoption application.
Be certain to answer all of the questions to the best of your ability.
Step 2: Review of your application.
An Im-Paws-Able volunteer will review your application to determine if it should be escalated to the next step. Our goal is to find the perfect ‘fur-ever’ home for each dog in our care. We appreciate your understanding should you be eliminated as an adoption candidate.
Step 3: Veterinary Reference Check
A volunteer from Im-Paws-Able Rescue will verify with the veterinarian you listed on your application to ensure your current pets are up-to-date on vaccinations and are spayed/neutered. We will NOT consider placing an Im-Paws-Able dog in a home where there are intact animals. If you do not currently have a pet, we will make sure that the veterinarian you listed exhists and is accepting new patients. We will also ask for a third personal reference in Step 4.
Step 4: Personal Reference Check
A volunteer from Im-Paws-Able Dog Rescue will contact your personal references you listed on your application to ensure that you understand what being a good pet owner means and you are able to undertake the responsibility of adoption. Please do not list relatives.
Step 5: Home Visit
This is the final step in the process. A home visit is when a volunteer from Im-Paws-Able Dog Rescue will visit your home to determine if it is safe and acceptable for the rescue dog you have chosen.
Im-Paws-Able Dog Rescue will set up the home visit. Please be patient, as we are all volunteers.
Step 6: Adoption
When the home visit is completed, you are ready to adopt your fur-ever family member!!!
