The Application Process

All animal adoptions require a completed and approved application. You may wonder, “Why do I need to fill out paperwork? After all, aren’t these homeless animals?”

We understand that you just want to get your new cat or dog friend safely home, and we thank you for taking the time to save a life. Our goal is to make the process as straightforward as possible.

Each animal’s previous owner trusted our rescue to find a safe and loving home for their beloved pet, and we take that commitment seriously. To make sure this a good match with a bright future, we need detailed and honest information on the adoption application.

This is our first chance to get to know you, so please be as thorough as possible when filling out your answers. The lifelong reward of rescuing an animal is worth a few minutes of paperwork!

Please select the applicable form if you are interested in adopting a dog or cat.

Please remember if you plan on renting somewhere new, you will need to find a place that takes your animal.

Do you have any children under the age of 10 visiting regularly?(Required)
Does anyone in the household have allergies?(Required)

Please call your vet to let them know that Tyson's Place Animal Rescue will be calling to get a vet history for current animals.

Please include as much as possible - think about energy level, grooming requirements, house training, children compatibility, etc.

We love knowing more about our applicants - your dog history and experiences and expertise and anything else you want us to know.

Have you ever surrendered an animal to a shelter or other animal welfare organization?(Required)
Have you ever lost an animal (ran away...)?(Required)
Have you ever given away an animal (via sites such as Craigslist, to family or friends)?(Required)
Do you have a fenced yard?(Required)
Will the dog ever be allowed anywhere without proper containment?(Required)
Are you willing to deal with a dog that isn't housebroken?(Required)
Some dogs become destructive when left alone. Are you willing to crate-train your dog to prevent this?

If you are unsure what crate training is, we would be happy to explain the process.

Do you understand that this dog will have to go to the vet every year for vaccinations?(Required)

Dogs must be on prescription heartworm prevention medication on a monthly basis as well.

Adopt A Cat

Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat from Tyson's Place Animal Rescue. Please fill out the form below to be considered.

Address(Required)
Do you own or rent?(Required)
Do you plan on moving in the next six months?(Required)

Please remember if you plan on renting somewhere new, you will need to find a place that takes your animal.

Do you have any children under the age of 10 visiting regularly?(Required)
Does anyone in the household have allergies?(Required)

Please call your vet to let them know that Tyson's Place Animal Rescue will be calling to get a vet history for current animals.

Please include as much as possible - think about energy level, grooming requirements, house training, children compatibility, etc.

Have you ever lost an animal (ran away...)?(Required)
Have you ever given away an animal (via sites such as Craigslist, to family or friends)?(Required)
Where will your cat be kept?(Required)
Are you planning on declawing your cat?(Required)

Many people don't realize that declawing a cat actually involves amputation of the bone up to the first knuckle - an extremely painful process that can lead to lifelong health and behavioral issues.

Due to potential side effects of declawing including litterbox issues and biting, are you willing to try alternatives to declawing?(Required)
Have you ever had a cat quit using the litter box?(Required)
Do you understand that cats must go to the vet ever year, even if they aren't ill?(Required)

Even if your cats live strictly indoors and you decide not to vaccinate it, an annual vet appointment for cats is necessary for prevention. Cats are excellent at hiding illness until it is too late and an annual exam can find and prevent health issues, leading to longer life.
