AuCaDo Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Michigan and Ohio
How does the adoption process work?
The completion of the adoption application is the first step. The processing of your application can take 24-48 hours, if we are able to contact your vet reference and personal references. Please make sure your vet knows that we are going to call, and give your authorization for them to answer our basic vaccination and heartworm questions. It is easier for us to have email addresses from the personal references or we would welcome a phone call from them at their convenience.
Before or after submitting the application, please give us a call, so we know that you are still interested in adopting. We may have some questions, and we would like to hear what questions or concerns you may have.
If we are unable to do a home visit, we would like to see pictures of home and yard in a separate email.
After the adoption application has been approved and phone contact has been made, we can schedule a meeting with our rescues.
Please answer each question. If the question does not apply to you, write in N/A to indicate that it does not apply.
PLEASE NOTE: Use the TAB key to go from answering questions and field to field. The ENTER key will take you to the end of the form, and the form will be sent out incomplete. Before submitting the application, we suggest copying your final copy before submitting it. Just in case the application does not reach our email, then the copy can be attached to an email.
If there is a problem with the application, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know you are trying to complete the application. Thank you for applying to adopt one of our precious Cattle Dogs.
If you do not hear from us in 24 hours, please follow-up, in case we did not receive your application. A phone call is required before an approval of your application can be made. To speed up the process, please give us a call.
Please Note: This is just the first step in the application process. We would appreciate a phone interview either prior to the application or after sending it. If you live out of the area, pictures of the home and yard are required. References that have email addresses are easier for us to contact. We receive many applications daily and any help on your part is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Our adoption fee, beginning January 1, 2011 is $250, which is used for spaying / neutering, age appropriate shots (DHLPP & Rabies), micro-chip, de-worming started, heart worm testing in adults, heart worm preventative (all ages & year round) and high quality food. Some dogs may need extra medical care, for instance, heart worm treatment, yet our adoption fee remains the same.
To be fair and to show good faith, a deposit will hold an approved match, for a reasonable amount of time. AuCaDo Rescue will not hold an ACD on a verbal request. Please remember, if a dog has a deposit on it and shows a status of "pending" that we honor that application first. Also, the pending status shows for two weeks after adoption to allow the rescued ACD to settle in to their new home.
Australian Cattle Dog or Herding breed experience is required to Apply / Adopt our pups or specific adults as written in their bio. Our adoption fee covers the Spay / Neuter, Vaccinations (age appropriate), Microchipping, Heart Worm testing (6 months and up), HW preventative (year round) and Deworming. Please consider adopting a rescue with the basic medical already done.
Please answer each question or use N/A if not applicable. Thanks.
