Adopting an animal in need of a second chance is a very exciting and
special event. Animal Rescue Recon is committed to this effort and does
everything possible to make sure the pairing works for everyone - you
and the animal. As a result, there are some guidelines that must be
followed to ensure the health and safety of the animals and their new
Some things to consider include the ages of children in the
household, secure fencing and how will the new family member will be
received by existing pets in the home.
You must have a fenced yard (6ft), free of fox tails. Please bring
photos of your yard - either digital or print copies, or email us the
photos that show secured fencing. Home visits will be performed, when possible.
We do adopt small dogs to occupants of some condos or apartments.
Please bring photos of your outside patio or balcony area. If you rent,
we need to review a copy of your lease which reflects you are allowed
by the landlord to have pets on the property.
We typically do not adopt to families with children under the age of 5 years
old unless we know the history of the dog and/or how they react around
ALL CHILDREN MUST BE PRESENT AT TIME OF ADOPTION.
If you already own a dog(s), please bring them as well for a meet and
greet or plan on scheduling a personal appointment prior to finalizing
All animals will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and micro-chipped either at the time of adoption or immediately afterwards. Depending on the age of the animal and the availability of vet appointments, some have not been altered prior to adoption, however we will continue working with you and the animal until all services have been completed.
Having your pet spayed/neutered is not an option, it is a requirement and part of the adoption agreement.
Adoption fees are $300 for all dogs. This fee helps offset the expense we incur for exams, shots, microchip and spay/neuter.
Animal Rescue Recon will discuss these guidelines and offer
suggestions when you call for information regarding an adoptable pet.
