Please Read the Following and Sign Below
Providing CHS with this information means you are allowing a CHS Representative to call your vet, property owner, and references during the application process. You also agree that CHS may follow up with said contacts after adoption has taken place. Please understand our goal is to make sure these animals are placed in good homes. The responsibility of CHS is the best interest of the animals. CHS has the right to refuse an adoption for any reason. The application remains the property of CHS.
I certify that the above information in this application is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all questions and sign the application can result in this application being declined. Also, if an omission or untruth is discovered after an adoption takes place, I understand that Cherokee Humane Society reserves the right to annul the adoption and reclaim the animal.
The adopted animal will reside in my home as a pet. I will provide it with quality food, plenty of fresh water, indoor shelter, affection, annual physical examination, monthly heartworm prevention and yearly vaccination under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. I agree that "chaining" or "tethering" this animal is prohibited. If a rehoming needs to occur, I will contact CHS for help and advice. If at a later date I am unable to care for this animal, I agree to contact CHS described above and give them the option to reclaim this animal at no charge before I attempt to rehome this animal myself.
There is a $10 application processing fee. This fee is for application purposes only and is not refundable, transferable or exchangeable nor does it apply towards the dog adoption fee. It also does not guarantee you will get to adopt the dog.
Once you submit your application, we should receive it within 24 hours. You will be notified that it has been received and has moved onto the review process.
Our application review process can take several days. The quicker you respond to any requests we may make for additional information, the quicker we can process your application.
If we are asking for additional information, it doesn't mean that you are the individual approved to adopt the dog, we are still reviewing your application. Please be aware that a single dog or puppy can receive multiple applications.
If we think your family would be a good fit for that dog/puppy, we will invite you to schedule a meet and greet appointment.
Following your meet and greet we will then decide whether you will be the dog/puppy's chosen adopter and notify you. Please allow some additional time following the meet and greet to make a decision.
