The purpose of the pre-adoption screening is to familiarize you with SOME of the requirements for adoption prior to you filling out your adoption application.   You will still be required to sign a complete and detailed adoption contract with your application submittal, and again prior to receiving your rescue dog.   

Please read the conditions below carefully.  If you concur with these conditions, continue to the application.  If you need clarification or are unable to answer yes to any question and would like to speak with a CCBTR volunteer, contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I agree to keep my adopted dog as an indoor pet.

I agree to provide this dog with proper veterinary care, including but not limited to annual exams, vaccinations, medications, treatments and all other care recommended by the veterinarian.

 I agree to obey all applicable laws governing control and custody of companion animals, including leash laws.

I agree to provide a safe collar or harness with rabies tag, microchip tag and identification with my address and phone number and ensure that my dog wears it at all times.

I agree that the dog shall not be subject to extended periods of containment or restraint by chaining, trolley, or roping.

At no time will I allow my dog to run at-large.  My dog shall be under my positive control in a fenced area or on a leash at all times.

I agree to notify CCBTR immediately if my dog becomes lost or stolen.

I agree not to abandon, sell or give away my dog and further agree not to allow the dog to be admitted to any animal shelter, humane society or agency except when required by law enforcement.

I certify that no member of my household has ever been charged with a misdemeanor or felony involving neglect or cruelty to humans or animals.

I have been advised that prior to entering the CCBTR program, my adopted dog may have had no training or may have been neglected, mistreated, or abused.  I acknowledge that CCBTR does not guarantee the health and/or temperament of any dog.  I agree to accept ownership of this dog at my own risk, and agree to fully and completely indemnify and hold harmless CCBTR, its agents, officers, directors, representatives and volunteers from and against any and all loss, damage, injury or expenses arising from or related to health and/or behavior issues with my adopted dog.  

If you are ready to move forward with your adoption application, please complete the application and attach a copy to an e-mail addressed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We will review your application as quickly as possible.  The process to review and approve your application will take one to two weeks.  Please be patient with our process.  Our goal is to find the best home for each of the foster dogs and to find each adoption applicant the rescue dog best suited to their home.
