Online Adoption Contract

Thank you for deciding to adopt!!!

This application is the first step. Completing this form does not automatically hold an animal but it does start the process of adoption. After your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted by a volunteer.

This application may also be used for courtesy listings of pets that are not adopted directly from Piedmont Pound Paws.

PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME TO READ EVERYTHING.

COPING WITH COVID-19: Because of the hold on adoption events in the pet stores and so many ups and downs about safety, we are processing adoption applications strictly on line. An application must be submitted 1st before we will begin the process. The application will not be binding until the adoption is final. We will likely do a lot of communication online, by text or Facebook PM or by phone. We will be asking you to send us a video tour of your home, showing where the pet will be living and of your yard, if applicable. Meet and greets will likely also be quite different, using masks, plastic gloves, Clorox wipes, maintaining the appropriate social distance, and anything that will keep everyone safe. As soon as we receive and review your application, a volunteer will contact you ASAP.

All adoption fees, except for courtesy listings, include:

  • The cost for vaccinations and other medical care up to the point of adoption. If you become an approved adopter, you become responsible for any further medical care the pet may need. Most of our adoptable dogs/cats and puppies/kittens will need future vaccinations that you would be responsible for.

  • The spaying or neutering of the animal is usually performed prior to adoption, however, if there are circumstances when a pet has not been spayed/neutered, you will be given information on where this can be done, at our expense, and you are responsible for following up. We will need proof from the Veterinarian of our choice.

  • Microchip and Registration for one courtesy year: Piedmont Pound Paws will register the microchip once we are certain the adoption is final. You will receive an email that it has been registered. You should receive another email in a year to renew it. That fee is around $20 and is for life. ​

To qualify for adoption, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver's license or state Identification Card stating your current address.

  • Have the knowledge and consent of a landlord, if relevant.

  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper nourishment and care, and training for a pet.

  • We also require that all of our pets be treated as family members. We do not adopt out strictly outside pets. Our pets are not equipped to live outside. If you are looking for an only-outside pet, please stop now.

  • Please note: We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. Please be advised that we will not adopt to persons who mislead or fail to provide accurate information on this application.

  • Please provide detailed information for all questions.
