Dog Adoption Application
We are glad you would like to adopt a new pet from us. The following information is required so that we can assist you in the selection of your new pet. This form and consultation with a Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund representative is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the animalís best interest, and to assist you in finding the animal most compatible with your lifestyle.


Our Adoption Fees are as follows:
Adoption Fees range between $95 - $400 and are based upon breed (pure or mixed), age, health, socialization (i.e. good with dogs, cats and kids)

Your donation is a tax deductible expense and it goes toward funding our rescue efforts.

Our Rescue Retirement Program is designed to place our older dogs into homes where the adopter is home more often than not; therefore Tazzy Fund WAIVES the $95 donation for our dogs aged 8 and up when the adopter is a Senior Citizen, aged 55 years or older.

Tazzy Fund is a 100% volunteer run rescue and we do not have a shelter location for our dogs. All of our dogs live in the foster homes of our volunteers, so that we can assess them in a normal living environment. We do require an adoption application be completed and a home check approved prior to scheduling introductions with our adoptable pets.
