Adoption Application/Contract

The first step in setting up an adoption meeting is for you to fill out the application to adopt!

Adoption Application and Contract

Please fill out the following form completely. 

 There are areas in which the question and info only pertain to dogs, select "Cat" in those areas if you are looking to adopt a cat.

Do you rent or own?

 **Renters, please provide lease agreement from property owner/landlord stating you are allowed to have pets and/or if there are any pet restrictions.

Do you have a yard?
If yes, does your yard have a fence?
Do you have other pets?
Are there kids living in your home?
Does every member in the household agree with adopting this pet?
Do you need a recommendation for a veterinarian?

Read each statement below and check the circle below:


I understand there will be a non-refundable, non-transferable pet deposit prior to adoption.

If I can no longer care for this animal, I will return him/her to Kane’s K9s & animal rescue.

I will stay up to date on any vaccinations or vet care my pet needs.

I am adopting a rescue animal and understand the breed type/size may not be guaranteed.

Kane’s K9s has sterilized my pet and provided up to date vaccinations, but it is my responsibility to continue vet care and vaccinations as needed.

I understand that taking an animal that is not fully vaccinated to public places can be dangerous to their health. I will not bring my pet to dog parks and/or public places until they are fully vaccinated and a professional Veterinarian has cleared me to do so.

Kane’s K9s may not know every rescue animals’ past, but I am committed to ensuring my new pet has a bright future.

I understand that my new family member has been microchipped and Included in my adoption fee is a life time subscription to keep my pet registered via petlink. I am committed to keeping this information updated incase there is an emergency.

I understand that kane's k9s will remain a guardian on every animal they adopt out so they can keep their animals safe if ever caught in a bad situation and/or can help reunite you with your lost family member incase something happens.

I understand that if I no longer can care for this animal I will return them to kane's k9s & Animal Rescue and my adoption fee will then be considered a donation towards the rescue.

I understand that adopting a pet is a life time commitment and I am committed to keeping my new furry friend happy and healthy for the remainder of their life. 

If for some reason I MUST return the animal I understand I do not get a refund and I agree to keep said animal until Kane's K9s can find another placement as we are a foster based rescue.

I understand and agree to the statements above



As a rescue, we assume all of our puppies were exposed to Giardia/Coccidia and watch for  symptoms. When definitive symptoms arise in our care, we treat our puppies for illness.  Due to the nature of rescue, it is unfortunately too expensive to test and treat every puppy  in our care if they are not presenting symptoms.

We highly recommend you take your new puppy to your vet and have them tested for  Giardia/Coccidia, and if they test positive, complete any necessary treatment.

Giardia intestinalis (aka Giardia duodenalis, Giardia lamblia) is a common, treatable, microscopic  intestinal parasite that affects humans, dogs, and cats. Puppies contract Giardia when they eat, or  even inhale, something with the parasite on it. Coccidiosis is a common, treatable, intestinal tract  infection caused by one-celled organisms (protozoa) called coccidia.


Since Giardia and Coccidia are microscopic, it is not always obvious your puppy encountered  grass/dirt/water/food previously contaminated. Since puppies are still developing their immune  system, they are extremely susceptible to these common, yet treatable, parasites.

Common signs and symptoms of Giardia infection (in both humans and pets) are diarrhea, gas,  abdominal discomfort, nausea, and vomiting. The most common sign of Coccidia is diarrhea.  However, it is possible to be infected and have no signs or symptoms of illness.


❖ Avoid walking your pup outside where other animals go to the bathroom, whenever  possible.


❖Make sure your puppy has clean drinking water from indoors. Do not let your puppy  drink from puddles, communal water bowls, or other outdoor sources.


I hereby acknowledge that Kane’s K9s staff provided me with this information sheet on Giardia/  Coccidia, understand that these are common and treatable parasites, and accept full  responsibility for any medical costs and/or care associated with Giardia/Coccidia (in addition to  the medical release above).









Kane's K9s & Animal Rescue (Kane's K9s) takes every precaution to not place aggressive dogs or dogs with extensive behavior issues. There is always a risk that an adopted dog could develop a behavior issue once in a home or could inflict a bite or scratch to the adopters, family members, other animals in the household or members of the public. If you witness any aggressive, dangerous or concerning behavior from your pet (or from any members of your own family or pets toward the adopted pet), you agree to immediately notify Kane's K9s for additional help and resources. By signing the adoption contract, you agree that you will not hold Kane's K9's financially or otherwise legally responsible for any injuries or damage that might occur upon adopting a dog. You release Kane's K9s from any and all liability through the completion of the adoption contract.


Kane’s K9s does not approve of the use of aversive tools, techniques and  punishment for training or behavior modification of adopted dogs. Aversive tools,  techniques and punishment include, but are not limited to, the use of any of the  following: choke collars, prong collars, shock collars, electronic collars (e-collars),  training collars, e- touch, stimulation, tingle, TENS unit collar, remote trainers, e prods, alpha rolls, squirt bottles, scat mats, pet correctors, bark collars, citronella  collars, and electronic fencing.


Aversive tools, techniques and punishment can cause aggressive and fearful  behaviors to worsen. Kane’s K9s encourages all adopters to interview any trainer  and/or pet professional you may hire to ensure that they do not use aversive tools,  techniques and/or punishment to train, handle or otherwise interact with your pet.  If you need help finding pet professionals that provide humane, safe, and effective  training or other services, contact Kane’s K9s for referrals and other resources.
