Completing this application is a step in the process to acquiring a puppy from Jenkins County K-9-1-1 Rescue,Inc., but it does not guarantee I'll get a puppy. While it's unlikely, the rescue reserves the right to refuse any placement at any time. APPROVAL: I will review applications within 2 business days of receipt. Applications are processed in the order they are received. If your home is a good fit, I'll notify you. GOING HOME: If you have a big vacation planned or have events that would conflict with a young puppy, please know puppies cannot be boarded in a kennel until they have received their full immunizations and their rabies vaccination which cannot be done until 3 months of age. CONTRACT: We have a contract and will not place a puppy without a signed contract. We believe it's the professional thing to do to memorialize our obligations to each other on paper so there are no questions later, and for that reason it's a bit lengthy. If you have questions about specific terms, you need to contact us prior to picking up your puppy. SPAY/NEUTER: We require spay/neuter at or before 6 months. If you're a breeder you should probably look elsewhere. We have a take-back provision in our contract. Any puppy from our rescue always has a home here, and will never experience the fear and burden of life elsewhere. Taking back an unaltered dog into our home poses significant risk to our own dogs due to canine STDs and the possiblity an unaltered dog could be pregnant. Sadly, many well-intentioned folks don't remember to spay before the first heat cycle, and suddenly their barely-adolescent dog is pregnant.
