Before the adoption form will open, you must read and acknowledge the Circle Area Humane Society Adoption Agreement:
I understand and agree that the animal being adopted is the property of CAHS until every step of the adoption process is complete and the adoption fee is paid. I understand and agree the animal being adopted is for myself and will not be sold, adopted or given to another party. If circumstances arise that determine this animal must be given up, I hold the obligaion to contact and return to CAHS. I understand and agree that at any point I cannot keep the animal, I will return him/her to CAHS, and forfeit the adoption fee.
I understand and agree that the animal being adopted is a "rescued" animal and that while CAHS makes every effort to place only healthy and sound animals, CAHS cannot guarantee the animal's:
Health, Previous care or treatment (before being rescued).
I understand and agree that CAHS shall not be held responsible for any future expenses which may be incurred. Including, but not limited to, medical care, temperament issues, housebreaking issues, damaged property, or medical care for injury to persons or other animals the adopted animal may come in contact with.
I understand and agree that the animal shall not be allowed outdoors without proper supervision. When taking the animal outdoors, the animal must be kept inside a fence or on a secure harness at all times.
I understand and agree that the animal must always wear proper ID (dog tags), and that it is my responsibility to purchase these for the animal upon completion of adoption and at the first of the year and every year to follow.
I understand and agree that upon adoption this animal remains as an indoor pet only and may not live outdoors.
I understand and agree to care for the animal in a humane manner and be a responsible animal owner. This includes, but not limited to, keeping the animal safe and secure, providing fresh food and water, supplying warm and dry shelter, adequate medical care, daily exercise and constant love, affection, and attention.
I understand and agree the animal is adopted "as-is", and I assume all responsibility for the treatment of any existing conditions.
I give CAHS permission to call or visit my home at any reasonable time to assure that the animal is being cared for and treated properly.
I agree to keep CAHS informed of my current address and phone number at all times.
I agree to keep the animal up to date on all vaccinations, to give the animal monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and to provide documentation of above treatment when requested.
I understand and agree the adopted animal will be seized by CAHS Rescue at any point if this agreement is violated or if the animal is found to be in any danger.
CIRCLE AREA HUMANE SOCIETY (CAHS) RESCUE WILL NOT REFUND ADOPTION FEES IF THE ANIMAL IS RETURNED OR SEIZED DUE TO VIOLATING THIS AGREEMENT IN ANY WAY.
THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT.
I AGREE ALL THE STATEMENTS I HAVE MADE ON THIS FORM ARE TRUE. IF IT IS FOUND THAT ANY STATEMENTS I HAVE MADE ON THIS FORM ARE NOT TRUE, THE ADOPTED ANIMAL CAN BE CONFISCATED.
