---------- ELECTRONIC DIFFICULTIES -------------
Our electronic application form is not consistently sending the submitted applications; we are getting some applications and not others. We are working with the service provider of our forms' website to correct the issue and hope to have it resolved as soon as possible. In the meantime, we ask that when you submit our electronic application, you follow-up with us by sending an email notifying us of your submission.
If you prefer, you can, instead, complete our paper application manually. Send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request the application. We can receive the completed application via fax (630-271-9006) or as an email attachment (pdf, png, jpg, etc).
Before you succumb to falling in love with a puppy or dog, ask yourself the following question: Do I really want a dog and all the responsibilities that come with having one? The reality is that adopting a dog or puppy requires a 10-15 year commitment on your part and you need to know if you are ready for that commitment. If you have made the decision to have a new dog or puppy for yourself or family, we will work with you to find a dog whose requirements match your life-style, expectations, experience, and needs.
The dogs and puppies that come into our adoption program have either been abandoned, picked-up as strays and unclaimed, or have been given up because their owner no longer can or will care for them. Sheltered dogs are loving animals that may not have been provided the training or care necessary by their previous guardians to make them an easy pet to live with. Because of this, all of our dogs temporarily live in homes with foster care providers until adopted. The foster care provider helps assess the dogís training, needs, and personality and then works with it to make the dog more adoptable. This is a great benefit for adopters and helps dogs stay adopted.
The adoption process for each dog usually occurs over a few days while coordinating schedules for all parties. We do our best to expedite the process effectively and efficiently, and we ask your patience and understanding. We are all volunteers and work to help our homeless dogs secure their forever family and home in addition to working a full time job. A Caring Place Humane Society reserves the right to approve or deny any application based on this organizationís adoption criteria as well as the presumed needs of the dog or puppy determined by this humane society for which the applicant has applied. Completion of this application does not guarantee an approval for adoption, nor does it place a hold on any animal.
