Dog Pre-Adopt Questionnaire



Fayette Humane Society wants to make sure your adoption goes as smoothly as possible. With many wonderful pets to choose from, we’ll work with you to find one that is a great fit for you and your family. All of our adoptions are done through an application process. Our Adoption Applications are designed to ensure a good match between pets and adopters.

Before you begin the application, you’ll want to take care of the following:

  • Important! Your current pets, if any, must be spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots, and dogs must be on heartworm prevention. The only exception is with a note from a licensed veterinarian!
  • Do your homework on what type of dog (age, temperament, personality, etc.) is best for your living situation and your lifestyle.
  • If you rent, talk to your landlord about pet policies.
  • Talk to a trainer, dog walker, doggie daycare, etc. to have a plan in place for your dog’s long term happiness.

Once your application is submitted, our volunteers will review your application. This review will include:

  • Contact your landlord, if you rent
  • Contact your Vet, if you’ve had dogs or cats in the past 10 years
  • Interview you (may be via email with follow up questions to get clarification)
  • A home check may be required depending on the specific animal you are interested in

Our approval process generally takes business 2 to 7 days. The most common delay to approving an application is being unable to obtain your vet histories, unable to reach your landlord or having other pending applications on the same animal ahead of yours.

Note, completing an application does not guarantee you will be able to adopt the pet of your choice. We adopt each pet to the first approved and available adopter. The pet of your choice cannot be held or reserved until after your application is approved. If the pet you want is adopted before your application is approved, we will gladly help you select a new pet. Generally, you will be able to finalize the adoption at the event or meeting.

Visit our Adoption Guide for full details about our adoption process.


Speed the application process – email copies or pictures of all your pets’ vet records clearly showing they are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on annual vaccines and on heartworm prevention to Include your name and the dog/puppy you are interested in in the subject line.
