ADOPTION PROGRAM

There you will be able to determine if your are ready and able to introduce a rescue dog to your family. At this time, we do not accommodate out of the area adoptions, and offer local Los Angeles area adoptions only.

 

adoption fees

All adoption fees are $200.00.  All dogs have been previously spayed or neutered, are fully vaccinated, and have current rabies certification.

 

ADOPTION APPLICATION

Once you are prepared to meet our adoptables, please complete our online application in its entirety. You will only need to fill out the application once, even if you are interested in multiple dogs. The information we receive helps us match the appropriate dog to you and/or your family. We will get back to you within 10 days of receiving your application.

 

adoption meetings

Once we have reviewed your application, applications that are accepted may be followed by a phone interview. In most cases, home checks are required. We will then invite you to a meeting with the dogs and staff at the EZ Heart & Soul Rescue property. These meeting are accommodated by appointment only.

 

adoption policy

Each rescued dog may have come from circumstances that are unknown to us. Since each of our dogs are fully evaluated by a veterinarian, and a dog obedience trainer, we are therefore able to provide some idea of the health and temperament of each dog. However, we, EZ Heart & Soul Rescue, are neither veterinarians nor behaviorists and cannot guarantee either soundness or temperament. As a new owner you should handle your adopted dog cautiously until you're comfortable with the dog's behavior and health. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with children. Once a dog is adopted, that dog and it's actions are the sole responsibility of the adopter. Adoption is complete upon the signing of the Terms of Adoption paperwork.

Unless special circumstances merit exception, all dogs are spayed or neutered and up-to-date on normal vaccinations. Often the dog will also have a rabies vaccine and a microchip, however if the dog does not have one or both of these, it is the adopter's responsibility to provide both and submit proof of the same to us within 30 days of adoption.

Additionally, unless there are special circumstances involving health, there are absolutely no refunds of adoption fees to an adopter if the dog is returned to us for any reason. Dogs may have a variety of behavior, and house breaking issues during the transition into his or her new home, which can be stressful on your new dog. Nevertheless, while these circumstances are a part of welcoming a new dog into your life, it is important to remember that owning a dog is a serious commitment and one that should be exhaustively explored before making. Part of this commitment includes working through transitional behavior issues, as well as the issues that led your dog to become rescued to begin with. Please do not adopt a dog if you are not prepared to commit to working with that dog.

Ultimately, if you feel your adopted dog needs to be returned, you agree to return your adopted dog directly to EZ Heart & Soul Rescue. Further, you agree not to relinquish your dog to Animal Control, any animal shelter facility, or animal rescue group, without contacting EZ Heart & Soul Rescue first.
