How is your home dog-proofed? _________________________________________________________________ It is our goal to find the best match for the dog or pup in need. Often, there are many applications for the same dog. We look at each applicant fairly and we never adopt out on a first-come, first-served basis. The Adoption Fee that we request goes towards helping the next dog in need. We ask $200 for Puppies and $150 for Adult Dogs. K9 Kokua provides any necessary treatment to get the dog healthy prior to adoption, up-to-date shots, spay/neuter, microchip, collar and ID Tag for all adoptables. Also included with Adoption is Post-Adoption Support, a starter amount of the specific dog's food, a familiar toy or linen(s), one month of heartworm preventative and one month of flea/tick preventative. We understand the adjustment of adoption and we offer these to help make the transition as smooth as possible for the dog. Is there a specific dog that you are applying for? _____________ Name? _____________________________________ If no preference right now, what size dog are you looking to adopt? __________________________________________ Female Male (please circle) Breed Preference? ________________ Age? __________________________________ If no match is found, do you want us to keep your application on file? ________ How long? ________________________ By signing below, you are stating that the information you provided is true. You are aware that if K9 Kokua finds that any misrepresentation has been made, your application will not be considered. You are also aware that a home visit may be requested and that we require a trial sleepover period before the adoption is finalized with an Adoption Contract. Mahalo Nui Loa for considering adoption!
