Terms of Adoption 

1.   Fee:  We ask for a donation determined by the age of the dog, and only partly by the money spent to bring the dog to you in good health.  The Rescue dog will have been neutered or spayed, have had all the necessary inoculations, including rabies, stool test for worms, and medical treatment will be given as needed before the dog is adopted.

2.   AKC Papers:  If AKC registration papers are available for the Rescue dog, copies will be given to the new owner. 

3.   Return Policy:  If for any reason, the adoption is not found to be satisfactory, Rescue requires that the dog be returned. The Rescue dog MUST NOT be sold or given away, but returned to Rescue if for any reason the adoption is unsatisfactory for the adopting family. OES Southwest Rescue reserves the right to take back any Rescue dog that is being neglected or not properly cared for. 

4.   License:  The Rescue dog must be licensed in accordance with existing laws in your town, and RABIES vaccine must be kept current. 

5.   Care:  The adopting family agrees to provide adequate shelter, food, all necessary medical and grooming care, and agrees that their Rescue dog will not be allowed to run free or be tied out without proper supervision. Failure to do so will require that the dog be surrendered to Rescue. 

We require that you follow a regular inoculation program as established by your veterinarian. Your dog will need yearly boosters for Kennel Cough and every three years for Distemper and Parvo.  Rabies booster as required by your state law. Your dog MUST have an annual test for heartworm and your veterinarian will recommend a heartworm preventative program for your dog. 

I have read the terms of adoption and understand them and agree to abide by them if I adopt an Old English Sheepdog from the OES Southwest Rescue.
