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
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.
