In Consideration of Your Time . . .
It is Pound Buddies’ general policy that we do not adopt to homes with unaltered pets or pets not current on vet services; however, we will review applications on a case‐by‐case basis.
A Rewarding Relationship, A Serious Responsibility
Pet ownership is a serious responsibility that offers much love and many lasting rewards. You are not only adopting a pet, you are adding a new family member to your household. Pound Buddies strives to ensure that each person who adopts a pet is aware of, and willing to, accept that responsibility. The questions in this application are designed to help our staff make sure there is a good match between each animal and its new family.
Our Adoption Procedure
Please completely fill out, electronically “sign” and submit this online Application form.
Important Reminder: After submitting your electronic Adoption Application, please call your Veterinarian by the next business day authorizing his / her office to speak with a Pound Buddies’ representative regarding your vet history. Also, please notify your references that they may receive a call from a Pound Buddies representative.
We will review your Application and contact your veterinarian if you have had a pet under a veterinarian’s care in the past.
Upon final adoption approval, you will meet with a Pound Buddies Adoption Counselor, sign an adoption contract, and pay the adoption fee. You may then take your new family member home at a jointly agreed upon time.
Adoption Application processing typically takes at least FIVE business days. If you have not heard from us by the sixth business day, please call (231) 724‐6500 and leave a detailed message with your name, your phone number, the name of the desired dog, and the date of the application.
On the sixth business day, you may also e‐mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the Subject Line, please type, “I am requesting my application status.” In the body of the e‐mail message, please list your name, address, phone, desired animal, and the date of your adoption application.
