STEPS IN THE ADOPTION PROCESS
1) Please fill out our adoption application. There is nonrefundable $35 application fee. 100% of application fee funds go to help our dogs.
2) Our adoption coordinator will review your application. A call might be set up to review your application with one of our volunteers.
3) Our adoption committee members review applications weekly and discuss the applications and available dogs.
4) The committee carefully considers potential adopters’ requests such as:
5) Personal and Veterinarian references are checked. Delays may occur in this part of the process if the listed references do not return phone calls. Please tell your references to accept our call or return our call as soon as possible.
6) Once a potential dog is available, an SSMR volunteer would call to discuss the dog and it being a potential match. Potential adopters are, of course, under no obligation to adopt the dog selected by the committee. If the potential adopters reject the match, they will be placed back in the potential adopter file.
A home visit may be requested as part of the application process.
We strive to find each Mastiff that comes into our care the perfect home. If you and your family are ready to provide that perfect home please fill out our application and we will be in touch with you.
Please Note: It has become necessary to collect a non-refundable application fee of $35 to help defray the increasing costs of veterinary care of the mastiffs coming into rescue. The fee must be paid when you submit your application. Your application will not be processed until we receive this fee.
