Adoption Policies and Procedures
*Due to the high number of surrenders because of accommodation issues, we are currently carefully reviewing applications from potential adopters with rental accommodations.
Please read this first if you are considering contacting us to adopt a dog.We receive an overwhelming amount of e-mails asking questions that are already answered here or on the dog’s description.
At Misty Creek, our goal is to find the most suitable environment for each specific dog and we reserve the right to refuse adoption. We want our dogs to enjoy a forever home.
A Pre-Adoption application must be filled out for each dog/puppy so that we may review your information and decide if you are the best possible home for the dog/puppy. Your application must be returned and approved before visiting the dog or puppy you are interested in.
All dogs will be vaccinated and dewormed. Those over 6 months of age will also be altered. All dogs over 8 weeks of age come with 6 weeks of Pet Care Insurance.
Most of our animals are stray animals and we do not have a complete history, so what we have listed on the website is all we know. We also only take one photo of the animal and we suggest you come and visit rather than e-mailing for more photos.
We do not hold animals with a phone call. Payment and contracts for the animal are required and you will be charged a boarding fee of $7.00 per day for a maximum of 14 days only. Please remember that every dog we adopt out and get into their new home means another can be saved.
Assume that all of our dogs are not house-trained. Most of them are here in kennels and we don’t know if they are housetrained. If they are house-trained, it will be posted on their biography.
We cannot guarantee temperment and behaviour. What we see here may differ from what happens in your home; you must be ready to dedicate some time helping your new friend adapt to his/her new environment. We suggest professional training to help the dog be the best he/she can be.
We will not, under any circumstances adopt out an animal for breeding purposes, so please don’t contact us if you want an un-altered dog Our goal is to educate people in the importance of spaying/neutering your pet.
Our Adoption Fees are not negotiable.
All our dogs and puppies are vet checked. We try to ensure that every animal is healthy before leaving us. We will not be held responsible for any health issues AFTER the time of adoption.
Adopting an animal is a serious committment for the life of that animal. They are not disposable.
