Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Carolina Beach Animal Hospital/College Road Animal

ultimately find them the best of homes. The following application is designed to help us determine if the

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please remember the animal’s welfare is our primary
concern. Completing an application does not guarantee adoption, and we reserve the right to refuse
adoption to anyone. Only exceptional homes will be considered.

following criteria before your application will be considered. Please initial each one.

If not, please list two personal references

Do you understand that this animal is up to date on vaccines/heartworm prevention/flea control and has tested negative for heartworms (dogs) and Feline Leukemia/FIV (cats) as of the date of the adoption? Any future vaccines (puppy/kitten boosters, etc.), Heartworm Prevention/Heartworm Tests, FELV/FIV retesting, Flea Control, medical care, etc., is your financial responsibility.
