A Dog is for Life - Our Adoption Process
First, you will never see us with our dogs or puppies at a show n' tell the type of adoption (meaning, we do not bring them to Petsmart/Petco/Pet Planet, etc. on the weekends for adoptions). This is proven to be impulse adoptions where people walk in the store to buy fish and see cute dogs and puppies on the way out, and "have to have one". Not realizing the life long commitment they are making for a new family member.
All of our dogs are adopted through the "application process". (It is very long and lengthy, but makes the person applying to think about everything that they will be responsible for when they adopt a dog. PLUS, it is good for 90 days for ANY of our dogs). It also points out some questions for people with small children. We do not have a facility where you can come and see them. Every dog we have is placed in a regular home and is being fostered until an adoptive family is chosen.
Secondly, we receive applications for each dog over a 3-5 day period (depending on the demand) and we select the successful applicant after this time. We do random Home visits, and also MapQuest your home. Your best reference will be your Veterinarian, whether one from the past or your current one (whichever applies), SO let them know W.O.W Rescue may be calling them and its ok to give out your DOGS medical /shot information.
Then if you are chosen, we will call you and set up a meet and greet. This is where you come and meet the desired dog and ask the foster any and all questions. If the adoptee currently owns pets, they bring them along to see how they interact with each other.
If all is well, they have the option to adopt right then and there. You get to take home your new family member!
