Our procedure for adoption.
We are a foster based rescue, ran by all volunteers! It can take several days to process a single application. Please be patient. All applications are reviewed by at least one board member and then reviewed with the current foster of the adoptable pet. This is done to ensure the new adoptive family meets the needs of the pet and that the pet meets the needs of the new adoptive family. During this process, a volunteer may contact you if we have any questions about the application. Please be very descriptive in your answers. Filling out an application does not obligate the potential adopter to adopt or the rescue to adopt to the potential adopter for whatever reason.
Once your application is received, we will proceed with a veterinary reference check. In your application, you are asked to provide your veterinarian’s name and number. You are also asked if it is okay for us to contact your veterinarian within the adoption application. During this reference check, we do ask if all of your current and past pets have been up to date on their vaccines, spayed or neutered and kept on heartworm preventive. Please make sure that if you use more then one veterinarian that you include all names and numbers.
Once the veterinary reference check has been completed, we will contact your landlord (if you rent), once your vet and landlord check (if applicable) are approved we will proceed with a home visit. Due to the pandemic we are currently doing virtual home visits. We, as a rescue, want to make sure our pets are going to safe and loving homes. During our home visits, we want to see where the pet we've loved, nurtured and watched grow into an adoptable pet is going to be calling home. We will check the fence in the backyard to make sure it is secure, that the bathroom and kitchen are free of things which could harm a pet and that in general, the home is pet friendly and safe.
Once the home visit is completed and approved, we set up a meet and greet. For a meet and greet, one of our volunteers, usually the foster of the adoptable pet, will set up a time and place to meet. During this time, the adoption process is completed with a contract that must be signed by both you and the volunteer. All checks and money orders should be made payable to Furget Us Not Rescue.

Please take note that we are in no way, shape or form affiliated with any other rescue or group. We pride ourselves on the working relationships we've built and are continuing to build within the community.
