Dog Adoption Questionnaire

Thank you for applying to adopt a rescue dog and saving a life!

These questions are aimed at making sure you realise the extra responsibilities that come with owning a dog, to help determine what type of dog you are looking for, and to assist us in finding the right dog for you. We endeavour to find loving, responsible, forever homes for our animals so please answer all questions as accurately as possible.

Completion of this questionnaire does not guarantee the adoption of a dog from Northern Rivers Animal Services. This questionnaire is a tool designed to help NRAS source the best possible forever homes for the dogs we have in care. In some cases, more than one application is received for the adoption of an NRAS dog. The decision is then with NRAS as to which application is the most suitable.

If the application is successful, the adoption fee must be paid in full prior to the release of the dog. All NRAS dogs are subject to a two week trial. If you decide during the two week trial that you do not want to keep the dog, then when you return the dog to NRAS the adoption fee minus $50 is refunded
