ADOPTION POLICY FOR DOGS

Lika - CARA rescued dog - pet for adoption - animal welfare in the Philippines

 

1. Dogs must be able to roam freely in a fenced or secure area inside the adopter’s house or compound.  This can be indoors or outdoors, provided there is adequate shelter.

2. Dogs should be walked twice daily in a responsible manner.

3. They must not be debarked. This is considered animal cruelty.

4. The animal must be provided with fresh water at all times and good quality food twice daily.

5. Veterinary treatment must be provided when necessary for the continued health and well being of the animal. Vaccines should be kept up-to-date yearly.

6. CARA’s animals, if over 6 months of age, are spayed/neutered before adoption. If the chosen pet is under 6 months of age, therefore not yet neutered, an advanced payment should be given to CARA for the operation. The animal has to be brought to the CARA clinic to the prearranged appointment for neutering. Why Spay & Neuter?

7. If for whatever reason you cannot keep the adopted animal, you must notify CARA and return the animal to CARA.

8. The adoptive family agrees to give CARA visiting rights to ensure the terms of the adoption agreement are being followed. Failure to follow the agreement will result in the animal being reclaimed by CARA.

9. Dogs adopted will be picked up by the adopter and brought to their new home in a carrier approved by CARA or in a personal vehicle.

10. The adoption fee is non-refundable.
