PAWFECT LIFE RESCUE IS PLEASED TO INTRODUCE A TOTALLY UNIQUE ADOPTION EXPERIENCE
Pawfect Life Rescue is a team of service professionals with a passion for dogs! After diving in and submerging ourselves in rescue, the team has heard you! Different folks have different needs but here’s some of the feedback we’ve received during discussions with adopters:
Adopters get frustrated if they’re told that having a fenced in yard is considered a “pre-req” to being a good dog owner
Adopters get frustrated if they’re told they can’t adopt a dog because they have young children
Adopters get frustrated if they don’t receive a response when reaching out to a rescue to adopt or foster or even make a donation
Adopters get frustrated if they end up speaking with someone who may be very good with dogs, but has limited people skills or little interest in listening to what they have to say
Adopters are often nervous about taking in a rescue dog and what will happen if they do and it doesn’t work out. What do they do with the dog? Does that mean they’re out their adoption donation?
Adopters often continue to need support after they’ve adopted their new family member. They need help with house training and teaching basic dog obedience.
Pawfect Life Rescue hosts Monday Night “Open Houses” where all our fosters get together to run, fetch, play!
These events are a lot of fun!
*Please Note: We do request that an adoption application be submitted prior to attending an open house*
MEET & GREETS
We also offer one on one “Meet & Greets” with individual dogs throughout the rest of the week & over the weekend!
*Please Note: An approved approved application needs to be on file in order to schedule a one on one*
We welcome you to come meet our pups, offering you the opportunity to meet a dog one on one or in a group setting to really get a feel for his/her personality. We are here to ensure the pup you’re interested in is really a good fit for your family/lifestyle. We not only treat our Pawfect pups well – but respect and treat you well too!
To adopt a Pawfect Life Rescue dog, please submit a completed adoption application online. Adoption applications should include a vet reference and 4 personal references (that aren’t related to you). Applications must be completed in their entirety. Should you have any questions please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon approval of your application, you will have the opportunity for a “meet & greet” where all family members (be it human or canine) can interact with the Pawfect pup you’re interested in (please note that these are different from our Monday night open houses for applicants). If the meet & greet is satisfactory for all involved, an adoption contract is completed and a check for a $525 adoption fee is issued to Pawfect Life Rescue, Inc. We will follow up with you within a week of taking your new pup home. All adopters are asked to contact their Adoption Coordinator within 7 days with any questions that may arise and with any updates on how things are going with their new pup! We get attached to these pups so pictures are always appreciated!
