Rescue animals require that you have patience, understanding,and lots of love to devote to them. Some have been abused, some were found as strays, and some were given up by their previous owners.In most cases, it will take some time for them to learn to trust their newowners because they feel they have been abandoned in some way previously.Some are housebroken. Some are crate trained. You must be willing to be patient to their needs and willing to teach them basic obedience commands, housebreaking, and socialization skills.

I, , have provided true and correct information on this application. I understand that an adoption fee applies and that if approved, once the animal has been adopted it is my sole responsibility to provide necessary vet care for that pet (emergency vetting & maintaining routine exams/necessary shots & license the animal as required by my locale). In the event I am unable to keep the pet for any reason, it will be returned to In His Hands Dog Rescue,no questions asked, however, adoption fees and vetting that I have incurred WILL NOT be refunded. I further understand the information I've provided will be investigated to ensure an appropriate placement for the prospective animal. A preliminary home visit will be conducted, and subsequent home visits will be conducted if I am approved to adopt an animal. The primary mission of In His Hands Dog Rescue is the welfare of the animals accepted in to the organization, therefore, are required by law to ensure the best possible placement for each of their animals based upon the special needs of each individual animal.
