Adoption Process



ADOPTING A DOG

We require all applicants have a home check, for this reason, we will only adopt to families in the Sacramento region. Oftentimes we get requests to meet our adoptables before applications are put in or on same day. Please be aware, our volunteers work full time jobs and devote their free time to helping homeless animals. If you want to meet several dogs, you would need to do so at our adoption events.  During homechecks, our volunteers are looking to make sure the home is a safe environment and that there is a secure area outside with solid fencing. Also, most homechecks are scheduled for nights and weekends, and often emails may not be responded to immediately (especially on weekends when a house full of foster dogs and home checks and vet appointments mean no time to sit down all together sit down in front of a computer). 

Our Application Process requires the following things:

1. Dog Adoption Application
(Click on the link to fill out the app or email adoptions@recycledpetsnorcal.org for any questions you may have. Please only submit one application, if you are interested in multiple dogs, email us for your questions.)

2. Home check (either done after you meet the dog or concurrently). Please make sure any outdoor area where the dog will be kept has secure fencing.


3. Adoption Contract


4. Adoption fee (adoption fees are posted on Facebook and Adopt-a-pet for each individual dog)

All dogs will be microchipped, dewormed, vaccinated (on schedule) and spayed/neutered before adoption. Please be prepared to allow your new pet a few weeks to become used to his/her new surroundings and life. All dogs are different and it can take different amounts of time for them to acclimate into their new environment. Be patient and you will be rewarded with a lifetime of love from your new best friend.

Cats
