MidAmerica Rottweiler Rescue Adoption Steps


Step 1

You will need to complete an application (www.adoptarott.org/adopt)

While we are reviewing your application, you can view all the dogs and puppies that are currently in need of a home on our Website, Facebook page, Petfinder.com, Rescueme.org, and Adoptapet; however, it is probably easier to wait until you are approved as the dog you inquire about might be adopted by the time you complete the application process.

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DOG YOU APPLY FOR WILL NOT NECESSARILY BE AVAILABLE WHEN YOU COMPLETE THE APPLICATION PROCESS.  But there is never a shortage of dogs coming into rescue.**

Step 2

Once we've received your application, we will review the information, conduct reference checks, and we'll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, on heartworm prevention, and well cared for.  For renters, we'll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog you're adopting wouldn't violate any size or breed restrictions.

Step 3

We will schedule a home visit.  During your home visit, we will have brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience with pets.  The home visit and interview are to make sure your new pet has an environment with everything it needs and to make sure that the dog you are interested in is right for your whole family and lifestyle.  It is also an opportunity to offer you further information on how to care for your Rottweiler, from vaccinations to diet and supplements, and for you to ask any questions you might have.

 **All family members living in the household need to be present for the home visit.

Step 4

Once your home visit has been completed, you will be notified if you are approved, and we will give you the details of the foster parents of the Rottweiler you are interested in, so you can ask questions of the foster.  A meeting should be arranged with the foster parent / Rottweiler and any current pets living in the household.

Step 5

Once you have been matched with a Rottweiler, you will work with the foster home to arrange a date/time to pick up the dog; we will not ship any animal.  To finalize the adoption process, you will need to sign the adoption contract and provide the adoption fee at the time of the adoption.
