Adopt a Happy Dog

Before applying to adopt a dog please yes to the following:

  • Is everyone in the household ready to adopt?
  • Have you researched the breed?
  • Do you have the financial means to cover emergency care?
  • Have you chosen a trainer?
  • Do you have time in your current life/career to add a dog?

Our application process:

  • The application will be reviewed and assigned to a member of our processing team
  • You will receive an email or phone call requesting an interview
  • We will call all references prior to home visit
  • The final step is the home visit
  • If we mutually agree the dog is a good match, an approval email is sent and adoption arrangements are made.
  • This process can take 1-2 weeks

Our adoption fees:

  • Puppies: $500 (adoption fee includes microchipping, a reimbursement for spay/neuter, and age appropriate basic vaccinations)
  • Adults: $450 (adoption fee includes microchipping, basic vaccinations, and the dog has already been altered)

Where our dogs come from?

We rescue locally and in the south. Our southern dogs typically spend 2 weeks in a foster home after being pulled from a shelter in the south. Once they come to NH they are quarantined and examined by our veterinarian prior to going to foster care or pre-approved adopter.


PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SCROLL ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FORM AND HIT THE SUBMIT BUTTON WHEN YOU ARE COMPLETED. THE RED ASTERISK IS A REQUIRED FIELD. THANK YOU!

 


Adoption Form
If you are open adopting any of our dogs, just state "any"
If your application is selected and processed, are you willing to submit a non-refundable $50 deposit to hold your dog? Due to the overwhelming number of applications we have been receiving we've also had an increased number of applicants that changed their mind at the last minute. This not only wastes our volunteers valuable time but it also delays a dog going home sooner. Therefore we now require a non refundable $50 deposit on all applications being processed. The $50 deposit is non-refundable but will go towards the adoption fee when adoption is finalized.*
We require our dogs attend training classes as part of our adoption contract.
If yes do you have a copy of all the bylaws, policies, regulations, etc. especially as they relate to pet ownership?
If renting how long at location? If renting, does your lease allow pets? Breed or weight restrictions? Pet deposit required? (We will need confirmation of payment of any required pet deposit.) PLEASE PROVIDE LANDLORD CONTACT INFO
(Please contact your vet after filling out this form to let them know someone from Wags & Wiggles Rescue will be contacting them for reference check)
Please include BREED, SEX & AGE. Did they have any health, behavioral issues? If you no longer have, what happened to pet?
Have you had an animal hit buy a car? if so, what were the circumstances? Have you had an animal that was lost or stolen?
