  • Please Read Carefully and ‘Sign’ above. I have read the above information carefully and have filled out this application honestly. I understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all questions and sign the application can result in this application being declined. Also, if an omission or untruth is discovered after an adoption takes place, I understand and accept that Homeward Bound has full rights to annul the adoption and reclaim the animal. I give Homeward Bound full permission to investigate the information provided as well as contact references, veterinarians, and related officials. Furthermore, I understand and accept that the adoption decision depends on many factors, including, but not limited to, the compatibility of the family and home to the individual animal and other applications received on the animal. I understand and accept that it is Homeward Bound's prerogative to decide which home is most appropriate for the individual animal, and therefore, I will not take issue with the decision. I understand that the submission of this application does not guarantee approval, and if declined, unless otherwise indicated by Homeward Bound, adoption of another dog may be considered.
