Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our rescue dogs.  We appreciate your support of our organization and our philosophy of "Don't Shop, Adopt".  Our rescue is run entirely by volunteers so we would ask your patience in the application screening process.  Once your application is submitted it will be assigned to one of our members for screening and they will be in touch with you as soon as their schedule allows.

 

In completing the application you must provide us with a home, work and cell phone number along with a valid e-mail address.  If you use your cell phone as your home phone number, please record the same number in both areas.  All questions require an answer in order to move on to the next.  If the question does not apply, please put N/A in the space in order to move to the next.  Many vets will not release a clients information unless they have been authorized to do so by the client.  Please notify your vet that a representative of Bald Is Beautiful will be calling.  Also, notify the individuals whom you have used as your personal references.

 

ask that any interested applicant meet the following criteria: All applicants must be at least 25 years old. We encourage senior citizens 65 and older to adopt older dogs. All pets in your home must be altered. This includes cats as well as dogs. Bald is Beautiful will not adopt dogs to homes with electronic or underground fences. In addition, we do not adopt to homes that use tie-outs to contain dogs, whether or not the owner is at home. If your yard does not have a fence, you must be willing to handle the dogs toileting and exercise needs with regular leash walks. You must be willing to sign an adoption contract* which states, among other items: You agree to see a veterinarian at least once a year for a physical exam and promptly whenever the dog becomes ill or injured. You will provide all necessary veterinary care, including required vaccination and heartworm preventative for the duration of its life. You will use positive training techniques only. If you enlist the services of a professional trainer, the trainer will use positive techniques as well. You must never physically punish the dog. All of our dogs are intended to live inside with the family. You may not leave the dog tied up in your yard or unattended outside, whether you are at home or not. While acceptable to crate your dog, please use care and judgment when considering how much time your dog spends in the crate each day. You must register your contact information with the microchip provider. If the dog is ever lost or stolen, you must contact Bald is Beautiful, which will use its resources to help you search for the animal. If, for any reason, you find yourself unable to fulfill these responsibilities and must surrender the dog, it must be returned to Bald Is Beautiful Hairless and Small Breed Rescue. Selling the dog, giving the dog away, gifting the dog to another family member or surrendering it to a shelter will not be acceptable and will be considered as a violation of the adoption contract. Bald Is Beautiful will deny any application which conflicts with the above guidelines, or if the application indicates the home would not be a good fit for the dog. Prior to adoption, all applications go through the following process: Check of veterinary references. We will ask your vet to confirm your current/recent pets receive the treatment we would expect our dogs to receive. Check of personal references. It's important that you provide us with references that know you well. If you have pets, please make sure you choose references who know you, your pets, and how you care for those pets. We do not accept family members as references. Phone interview by foster parents. Home visit. When possible, meet-and-greet between families and dogs. Please understand that we often get multiple applications for the same dog.  We do not necessarily adopt to the first applicant but to the home that in the foster parents opinion will be the best home for the dog. You may be interviewed and your references checked but not be approved for the particular dog for which you have applied.  This does not mean that you are not a good home - just that the particular dog for whom you have applied would not be a good fit for your family situation.
