These are the most frequently asked questions that we receive in regards to our adoption process. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at rescue.tdiao@gmail.com for more information.

How long is the adoption process?

The actual adoption process is very simple and quick. Just fill out our online application form, save it to your computer, and send it to rescue.tdiao@gmail.com. A Thank DOG I Am Out Dog Rescue Society representative will contact you within 72 hours to complete the process and schedule a home check appointment. Once approved, your adoption application is good for one year from the date of approval. You are not obligated to adopt a dog at any of our events unless you find the right one.

Are there any health issues I should worry about?

All our rescue dogs have been thoroughly vetted. They have been spayed/neutered, brought up to date on all vaccinations (rabies, dhpp, bordetella and tested for heart worm, and blood born disease). All the dogs will have had an initial flea and tick program administered. 

We have worked very hard to bring up healthy dogs. It is advised to give your rescue a week or so to decompress and then take your new family member to a vet to be sure he or she is in good health.

Does the adopter get a record of their dog’s shots?

All the dogs will leave with a record of their shots and their proof of spay or neuter.
