Sometimes a family finds it necessary to place their animal up for adoption. CPP helps by working with the family to find a more suitable forever home. CPP will reach out to the public at our various events. We will also use our website, Facebook, and other resources. It is always recommended that the new family be carefully reviewed. A pre-placement home visit is also a good idea. It is never safe to place your animal as “free to good home”. This kind of placement opens you up to putting the animal in a potentially bad situation. One such example is someone looking for a free dog to fight or otherwise abuse.

It is important that all animals placed for adoption be spayed or neutered as well as currently up to date on their vaccinations. Why spay or neuter? Imagine you give your pet to what seems to be a good home. Instead of providing a good home the new owner uses your animal to breed over and over in deplorable conditions for the rest of its life. Spaying or neutering would have prevented that from happening. Spaying or neutering as well as vaccinations will be the owner’s responsibility to do prior to contacting CPP.

 

How CPP Helps

 

CPP cannot take custody of your animals into a foster home environment at this time. It is up to you as the animal's family to work with CPP to get your pet placed in a new home. This will include making phone calls, taking pictures, and performing home visits. CPP will reach out to the public at our various events. We will also use our website, Facebook, and other resources.

Sample Adoption Application

Sample Home Visit Checklist

 

Paperwork
Provide the new home with whatever you have for vet or vaccination records. Also, if your animal is chipped, it’s helpful to provide microchip registration information so the new home can register the chip in their name.

Adoption Contract
We strongly recommend that you put in writing the expectations and relevant information around your animal's rehoming. Spell out basic expectations, the rehoming fee, your release of all “rights to ownership”, etc. Both parties should date and sign the agreement.

Future Communications
Make yourself available for the first week (at least) to help work through any questions or concerns. Unless it’s specifically discussed and agreed to, don’t expect a future of continued updates or communications from the new home. Your animal now belongs to this new family, and they’re moving forward.

Your Animal’s “Stuff”
Provide the new home with your animal's favorite and familiar things like a crate, bedding, or favorite toys. Making these available to the new home will help ease your animal’s transition to an unfamiliar place. We suggest you also include 4-5 days of your animal’s food to help with his/her transition over to a new diet.

If Things Don't Work Out
Be sure to discuss with the new home about whether you can take your animal back (and whether you’ll refund the rehoming fee) if for some reason things just don’t work out. There’s no right or wrong answer here, other than the answer that works for both parties. Discuss the possibility beforehand.
