Spay/Neuter Agreement

Ownership of Dog

Permanent ownership of this dog is contingent on compliance with this agreement between Lucky Puppy Dog Rescue & Kennel, Inc. ("LPR") and the "Adopter". In consideration of an adoption donation as described in the Adoption Contract, LPR has transferred ownership of the dog named above and described in Adoption Contract.

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: luckypuppyadoptions@gmail.com 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 or when vet recommended and agreed upon by LPR.

Spay/Neuter Deposit

 

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 agrees to spay/neuter dog before 6 months of age, or at a recommended age from your licensed veterinarian. Once this procedure is complete, LPR will reimburse Adopter's cost of the spay/neuter UP TO $100, pending proof of procedure by 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: luckypuppyadoptions@gmail.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. LPR may allow time extensions for spay/neuter under the direction of a licensed veterinarian.

Where to Spay/Neuter

Where will you spay or neuter when it's time?

If you have a relationship with a veterinarian already, we suggest continuing that relationship.
