Adoption fees are non-refundable and is payable on the day of the adoption. This is not payment for the pet but put towards funding to help other pets needing our help.
The need for insurance is essential as the rescue will not be held responsible for vet’s bills.
If the potential owners want a dog to live outside, it can only be a dog that is already used to living outside.
We do not re-home dogs to be used for guarding, breeding or anything other than as a family pet.
We do not place dogs in a family home where they will be left for longer than 4 hours a day at any one time.
The new owner must agree to have the pet either neutered or spayed within 3 months if the pet, for medical or age reasons has not been neutered or spayed yet, at the new owners expence.
New owners must also agree that we can keep in touch for the rest of the pets life. A follow up visit may be arranged.
We do not normally re-home dogs to people who have 3 or more dogs.
If there are already dogs (or other pets of the same species as the adopted pet) they must be neutered or spayed.
We do not re-home our dogs to families who have children under the age of 3 years old.
If the new owner already has a dog, we will only usually give them a dog of the opposite sex.
New owners are not allowed to re-home the pet themselves; the pet must come back to Ravenswood Pet Rescue.
New owners must advise us immediately of any change in circumstances which would mean that the pet is not getting the attention etc, that the pet deserves.
We cannot reserve nor guarantee that the dog applied for will always be available. This is due to multiple applications made for each animal. We do multiple concurrent homechecks for each dog to ensure that if an application falls through, another home is ready instead if having to start over.
If everything goes well at the Home Check and you are able to adopt a pet through our Rescue, you must be made aware that you cannot at any time part with that pet for any reason, unless he/she comes back to our Rescue.
At the time of adoption, there is a donation expected to be paid for each pet. This goes towards the ever growing vet and kennel costs and is not a payment for, nor a purchace of the adopted pet. This donation is non-refundable.
