Agreement to Vaccinate for Rabies
I am adopting my puppy when (s)he is too young to be rabies vaccinated. I agree to email proof within fourteen (14) days of vaccination. Email a scanned document or clear photo of the rabies certificate from a licensed veterinarian to: firstname.lastname@example.org within fourteen (14) days of vaccination.
Agreement to Spay/Neuter
The Adopter agrees to have the Dog named above spayed or neutered before (s)he reaches the age of six (6) months old. If your veterinarian will not spay/neuter by 6 months of age, adopter agrees to have LPR bring the dog to a clinic of our choice. If you do not fully comply with this spay/neuter agreement, all rights and ownership of the dog by Adopter will terminate and the dog will be returned to LPR. The Adopter will pay any legal or other fees LPR incurs in the process of reposessing the Dog, and $500 in damages.
If your puppy is too young to be spayed or neutered by LPR, the adopter will pay the complete adoption fee of $525.00 at the time of adoption.
Adopter will also pay a $200 deposit, which will be refunded to the adopter, along with up to a $100 reimbursement of the adoption fee, upon proof of the spay/neuter of the dog before 6 months of age from a licensed veterinarian.
Proof must be submitted to LPR not more than thirty (30) days after the date of the spay/neuter.
Proof of Spay/Neuter
Proof of spay/neuter (a spay/neuter certificate or receipt from licensed veterinarian) should be sent in the form of a clean scanned document or photo to: email@example.com. If the Adopter fails to provide proof of spay/neuter surgery within the time frame described above, the deposit is forfeited to LPR. In addition, all rights and ownership of the Dog by Adopter will terminate and the dog will be returned to LPR. The Adopter will pay any legal or other fees LPR incurs in the process of reposessing the Dog, and $500 in damages.
When and Why to Spay/Neuter
Fixing your dog prevents pregnancy and the birth of unwanted puppies. Our goal in rescue is to educate and promote spaying and neutering so that no dog is unwanted. In addition, fixing your dog has added health benefits including increased life span. In males, it eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and in females eliminates uterine infections and significantly decreases the risk of mammary tumors. Generally spaying/neutering should be done after the Dog has reached 4-6 months old. There is no need to wait until the female to have her first heat cycle and be able to get pregnant. This is what we need to prevent.
