Adoption Process and Requirements
Please read through the Adoption Process and Requirements for Adopting before submitting an application. Once you’ve thoroughly read through this information, an adoption application must be submitted before inquiring about a dog or being considered to adopt a dog from Who Rescued Who.
Please note - Our adoption fees cover Spay/Neuter, Microchip, Up to date Vaccines (which in puppies includes 4 rounds of DHPP and Bordatella), Rabies and Deworm.
DHPP and Boosters will be administered by Who Rescued Who, trained representatives.
Spay/Neuter, Rabies, Microchip will be conducted with one of our partner vets in the following areas: Conroe, Willis, Sugarland, Spring (Rayford), Bryan/College Station, Magnolia and Kingwood/Humble. All appointments will be scheduled by Who Rescued Who.
You will be provided medical records after your adoption is finalized, although you will have access to vetting throughout the adoption process to ensure your pup is happy and healthy!
Persons interested in adopting from Who Rescued Who must read the Requirements for Adopting.
1. Submit an adoption application on our website www.WhoRescuedWho.us
2. Within 24 hours of receipt of your application, an Adoptions Team member will respond to you via EMAIL or text with instructions on next steps in the application process. In the event that multiple applications are received, the process will extend to 72 hours.
**Please note that submitting an application is only the first step in our adoption process and does not qualify you as an approved adopter. There are several more steps to the process, including email communications, telephone conversations and more. We do our best to work with you as quickly and as smoothly as possible to determine whether or not the dog is a good match for your home. A completed Application is required to move forward to a meet and greet.
*All applications are reviewed and considered on a case by case basis.
Requirements for Adopting
-We do require most of our adopters to have securely fenced yards. However, some of our dogs may be considered for homes with smaller enclosures (i.e. secure patios) and we do occasionally adopt to apartment-style homes or homes without fenced yards.
-All applicants are considered on a case by case basis and selection of dogs appropriate for these homes is often limited.
-Puppies will not be adopted to homes where they will be left alone for too many consecutive hours on a regular basis - ("too many" hours is left to the interpretation of Who Rescued Who)
-All WRW dogs will be primarily inside dogs living as members of their family – no dogs will live strictly outside or in garages.
-No WRW dog will be kept on a chain at any time, for any reason.
-All WRW dogs will be provided with adequate fresh food and water, clean, dry shelter when outside, and daily exercise.
-All WRW dogs will be provided a safe collar with ID tags to be worn at all times.
-All adoptive families will obey all applicable laws governing control and custody of animals.
-All adoptive families will provide medical care as prescribed by their veterinarian including but not limited to; yearly exams, HEARTWORM PREVENTION, vaccinations and unscheduled treatment for any illness/injury.
-All WRW dogs will be adopted only as a personal companion and not as a gift, working animal or guard dog.
-All WRW dogs will be returned to WRW should it be necessary to find another home for the dog. No dog will be given away for any reason at any point in their lives.
-WRW assumes no responsibility nor shall they be held liable for any damages caused by the adopted animal to property, person or other pets. If any medical problems occur after adoption, WRW is not liable for medical bills.
-If you have other pets, they must be spayed or neutered if you adopt from WRW. As well, your other pets must be up to date on all vaccines and heartworm prevention.
-WRW’s primary goal is to place our dogs in permanent, loving homes. Please consider the many years of care and commitment when adopting a dog.
-To help ensure that we place our dogs in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we have an application and screening process.
Who Rescued Who reserves the right to refuse any adoption.
Our requirements and process stand in order to ensure each dog in our program is offered a chance for an adventurous, safe and happy life. Our fosters spend weeks and months caring for each of our dogs, and we not only owe it to the dogs to safeguard their future, but to their loving fosters. We depend heavily on our fosters to be the “eyes and ears” when we cannot be. They know the ins and outs of their dog’s personalities, and we reserve the right to support their decision to pass on an applicant following an unsuccessful meet and greet.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the selfless decision to adopt a Who Rescued Who pup, and welcome to The Who Rescued Who family!
