Dog Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our dogs. If you have any questions about any of our dogs or the adoption process please email us at

Animals are not a commodity. We ask that you and all family members have fully considered the responsibility of adoption as well as efforts and changes that you may need to make on behalf of your dog's behaviors and needs. Please take this decision seriously and well thought out. You should plan to have them for their life span, through their senior days.

What Each Applicant Should Know

  • Dogs will require the following vaccines/tests for the rest of their lives: DHPP-L (this vaccine covers Distemper, Hepatitis, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis), Rabies (1 year or 3 year vaccines), Bordetella (kennel cough), Lyme (to protect against Iyme disease which is transmitted to dogs through ticks), Heartworm test (transmitted to dogs through mosquito’s) and monthly heartworm pills. The costs for these vaccines/tests can be $300 or more/year per animal.
  • Last Day Dog Rescue dogs, unless otherwise stated, come with age-appropriate vaccines, sterilization, and have been deemed healthy by a licensed veterinarian. We cannot guarantee the future health of any of our animals. Can you imagine what your doctor would say if you asked them to offer a guarantee that you will never come down with heart disease or cancer later in life? Those guarantees just cannot be made.
  • Adoption fees vary by the individual dog. Dogs who are not sterilized will have an additional $50 spay/neuter deposit which will be refunded to the adopter upon proof of spay/neuter (separate form). The adoptions fees help to cover the cost of food, vetting, training, etc. of the dogs while they are in Last Day Dog Rescue's care. All fees are subject to change without notice at our discretion.
  • Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt nor does it guarantee the animal will be adopted to you.
  • Last Day Dog Rescue works to place the dog in the best matched home and does not work on a first come first serve basis. We collect applications on the dog in question and make our best determination on where we think the dog will do best.
  • We cannot guarantee the age and breed of our rescue dogs. We depend on our vets and other professionals to help us make the best determination/estimate regarding the breed and age of all our animals unless in an unusual circumstance we have some written documentation that has accompanied the animal from the shelter.
  • While Last Day Dog Rescue makes every effort to process new applications as soon as possible, it may take up to 7 days to fully process your application. Most of the volunteers at Last Day Dog Rescue work full time jobs and we do our volunteer work on our lunch hours, evenings and weekends. We cannot always reply immediately to an application that has been placed.
  • Our adoption process also involves a home visit which, depending on where you live in relation to home visit volunteers, can take some time. To become an approved adopter with Last Day Dog Rescue you must pass a vet check and an approved home visit.  If you do not hear from us within 10 days of application submission please email our gmail account  We will then try and get a home visit volunteer to your area asap.
  • Last Day Dog Rescue reserves the right to deny any application without explanation.
  • The Last Day Dog Rescue Board of Directors makes all adoption decisions and their decisions are FINAL.

I understand that completion of this application will in no way guarantee the adoption of this dog.

By submitting this Application, I am submitting my electronic signature and I declare I am at least 18 years of age.
