Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog from the Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor! Because pet ownership is a serious, long-term commitment, we wish to do everything possible to ensure that animals currently in our care are matched with their perfect forever homes.
This application form is indeed a lengthy one, but the information we’re requesting will help us make the best matches possible – both for the dogs and for the potential adopters. So please be both thorough and honest in your responses.
It is important to understand that filling out this application does NOT guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog you want. Once your application is received, it will be carefully reviewed by our staff, who will appreciate your patience as the review process proceeds. Our staff is small, and occasionally there is a high volume of applicants or a chosen pet has special needs that must be taken into consideration.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE APPLYING:
– All applicants must be at least 18 years of age to apply to adopt from APS-FH.
– When multiple applications are received for the same dog, we will review each application and base our decision on what we determine is the best fit for the dog.
– Other pets in the potential adopter’s home must all be spayed/neutered and are strongly encouraged to be up to date on vaccinations prior to adoption.
– APS-FH is a private shelter and reserves the right to deny an application for any animal for any reason.
