ADOPTION POLICIES: At Paw Prints in the Sand Animal Rescue (PPITS), we believe all pets deserve to live in a clean and loving home where they are considered a valued member of the home and family. Submitting an application does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt one of our pets. We carefully screen all of our applicants and review every application and situation to ensure our pets find the perfect home. Any incomplete application, false or misleading information provided on this application is grounds for refusal. In addition: (1.) We only adopt to homes where the pet will live indoors as a family member. We do not allow pets to be left outdoors while their guardians are at work or away for long periods of time. (2.) All pets are fixed prior to adoption. If the pet is too young to be spayed or neutered upon adoption, you agree to spay/neuter the pet you adopt from PPITS as soon as the pet is medically able to be spayed or neutered. Any other pets in the same household MUST also be spayed or neutered NO EXCEPTIONS*. (3.) We reserve the right to do a home check at any point after the adoption. (4.) Some of our pets are older or may have a medical condition. Should this be the case with the pet you are interested in adopting, additional requirements may have to be met by the adoptive family. (5.) All applicants must be at least 21 years of age, or have the consent and knowledge of all adults living in your home. IF YOU RENT, you must provide a copy of your rental agreement, or your landlord's name, phone number, and email address. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption applicant for any reason. (6.) You agree to return the pet you adopted from PPITS to us if you can no longer care for it. (7.)
