The adoption process is done using our online database. This registers the dog’s microchip to the adopter and initiates the health insurance policy. Documents that need to be signed include; the Adoption Contract, Medical History Report and Acknowledgment of Disclosures. In the case of puppy adoptions, a Spay/Neuter Agreement also needs to be signed. The adoption counselor will give over any other necessary paperwork and literature with you at this time.
– Your adoption counselor will follow up with you to make sure you are enjoying your new family member and answer any questions you may have. Please know that, at any time in the future, ROAR will be available to help in any way we can.

us know how your new companion is doing.
