We’re hoping you can help us find the perfect pet for our family.
We’re looking for an older dog, maybe even a senior with some health problems, as we know they are often the hardest to place and we have both love and money to offer on behalf of our new family member. We’re thinking that black or brown would be a great coat color and the more they shed, the better, as our teenage children love to brush and groom and we like to keep them busy so they stay out of trouble.
This dog would preferably have no training of any kind, as we look forward to spending time bonding with our new dog during that process. We don’t mind housetraining, since we know how important it is to set the dog up for success by using a crate or other means to limit their access to the house until this has been mastered, using only positive reinforcement techniques. We also have a huge, safely fenced yard where our other dogs love to run and play with the family.
Our dog will join our family of two adults, two teenagers, an infant, three dogs and two cats. Rather than getting rid of a pet when our adopted baby arrived from China, we thought it would be a good idea to open our hearts to another companion animal since expanding our family through adoption has been a blessing to us all.
We know you will need to check with our veterinarian to make sure that we take excellent care of all our pets. We are attaching copies of our veterinary records for the past 2 years, and have already given the vet’s staff permission to tell you whatever you need to know to ease your mind that we will provide a loving and safe home for the dog we hope you will help us find.
We know it costs you gas money so we are willing to come to you or give you gas money for transporting the dog to us. Whatever is most convenient.
One last thing: we noticed the website says your adoption fee is $125.00, but we think that is not nearly enough to cover the costs you must incur, especially since you provide foster care, food, monthly prevention for heartworms, and all other health needs until a rescued pet is adopted. So we will not consider giving you any less than $200.00 for the adoption fee, and will continue to support your life-saving work with annual donations.
Thank you for giving so generously of your time and energy, money and other resources, to save animals from certain death at the animal shelter and keep them safe until they can find permanent homes. If we can ever be of further help to you or your organization, please do not hesitate to call on us,
A Dog's Perfect Family
