Please list current and past pets you have own in the past ten years, indicating breed, gender, spayed, neutered, pet's age, if you still have them and if not why not?
Please list your current / previous veterinarian(s). WISH will contact them to verify your current pets are up to date on shots and altered; this is a requirement for new pet adoptions. Please call their office(s) to authorize release of information to WISH. If you are planning to utilize another vet but are not currently a client, please note that information.
*Please note: by completing this form, I agree that I will NOT four-paw declaw this cat(s). WISH does not allow four-paw declawing of any cat adopted from this organization. If you elect to front-paw declaw using a veterinarian of your choice, we ask that you are aware that there may be behavioral changes in the cat following declaw and you accept responsibility for any changes in the cat’s behavior. For more information on declawing alternatives, please visit our website.
Please provide two non-related references and their relationship to you. Please advise them a WISH volunteer will be contacting them so they can expect our call/email:
To meet a pet, a potential adopter should fill out the adoption application, meet the pet and have a compatibility interview. We give preference to adopters in the Fox Valley. We do not use a first-come, first-serve process and we decide who is going to be the best match for each pet. The process is intended to ensure a best-fit, long-term successful adoption for both the family and pet.
* If you rent, provide a copy of your lease and addendum allowing pets to WISH. * By signing this adoption application, you agree to provide vaccinations, health check-ups and any additional veterinary care, by a qualified veterinarian, on a yearly basis. * Your adoption fee is a donation to WISH and is nonrefundable. * When adopting a cat or kitten, you must bring a secure cat carrier along when picking up your new pet.
By signing this form, I/we acknowledge that the information on this form is true and correct. I/we agree to all provisions indicated on this form. I/we understand that any misrepresentation of fact may result in Wish Upon a Paw, Inc. refusing adoption privileges to me/us. If my/our request for adoption is approved and later Wish Upon a Paw, Inc. discovers the above information is not true or correct, this application becomes null and void. Because of my breach of contract, Wish Upon a Paw, Inc. reserves the right to remove the adopted pet from my home, and I will be held responsible for any associated legal costs incurred as part of said reclamation process. In order to ensure the best homes for our rescued pets, we reserve the right to deny any adoption application.
Thank you for applying to adopt a pet from WISH! Please allow 48-72 hours to process your application.
