I understand that written proof of completion of surgery must be submitted to All Breed Rescue within 30 days of surgery. 

I understand that under no circumstances is the animal to be bred. I understand that failure to neuter the animal within these guidelines or breeding of the animal constitutes a violation of this contract, and that All Breed Rescue will then have the right to seize the animal and assume full ownership of said animal.

​I understand that appropriate fencing must be provided for certain breeds or in certain localities. 

​I understand that some pets will be placed with the stipulation that they are the only pets in the household. 

​I understand that no puppies will be adopted to families with children under six years of age. I understand that puppies must not be left alone for more than three consecutive hours during housebreaking training. 

​I understand that this pet must be kept as an indoor pet. 

​I agree to allow All Breed Rescue or an appointed representative to periodically inspect the property where this pet is to be housed to ensure that proper care (food, water, exercise, and companionship) and shelter are being provided. I understand that appointments will be made in advance. 

​I understand that All Breed Rescue will be contacting my veterinarian for verification of routine preventative care needed in my specific area (i.e., special vaccines, heartworm preventative, flea treatment, or intestinal parasite treatment). 

​I understand that I will be required to return this pet to All Breed Rescue should it be determined that I am in violation of all or part of this contract. 

​I agree to contact All Breed Rescue immediately in the event that this adoption is not successful and return this pet to All Breed Rescue. I understand that this pet may not be sold, given away or placed in another permanent home or organization.
