The first step in adopting a pet from Camp Chaos Puppy Rescue is to complete this application. You can complete the application online or at one of our adoption events. Only one application needs to be submitted, even if interested in multiple animals. Completing this form before an event does not hold a dog. You are still required to be present at one of our adoption events to speak with an adoption counselor. After reviewing this application and speaking with you at an event, we will be able to determine if the adoption is in the pet's best interest, and the process ensures that you will find a pet well suited to your lifestyle.
Please provide detailed information for all questions.
Our adoption fee of $300 includes:
The cost for vaccinations and other medical care up to the point of adoption. If you become an approved adopter, you become responsible for any further medical care the pet may need. Most of our adoptable dogs are puppies and will need future vaccinations that you would be responsible for.
The spaying or neutering of the animal
Microchip and Registration

Be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver's license or state Identification Card stating your current address
