If you are interested in any of the dogs, please feel free to contact us with questions about the dogs or adoption procedures. Email chouteaupoundpals@hotmail.com

Our adoption fee is $75.00. The dogs are full y vetted, are up to date on their shots, have been tested for heart worms, & have been spayed/neutered if old enough. If puppies ar e not old enough to be altered, we give a voucher good for 6 months to have the procedure done at no charge.

If you want to adopt one of the dogs, please fill out the online adoption form to begin the process. We will contact you after your application has been reviewed. Normally within 2 days. *

 

CPP has, as part of our Mission Statement, the belief that every dog should have the opportunity to become a beloved family pet. Part of our responsibility in that is assuring, to the best of our ability, a good fit between the dog and the new adoptive family.

We don’t ask the following questions on this application to be the “dog police” or to be invasive, but to try and ensure both you and your new canine companion will be happy together. We have but one hard and fast rule that applies in every situation; we will not adopt to anyone who plans to tie or chain up the dog outside. Otherwise we feel that every person’s situation is special, just as every dog is special. It’s our job to match special dogs with special people. It is our intention to adopt dogs to those who will consider them an important part of their family.

If this is your first dog, we hope you understand that this IS a dog and NOT a thing. Its well-being depends on you. A dog needs not only the basic necessities of life, such as food & water, but also your time, love and attention. It’s a big commitment and responsibility. Please consider the following:

Most dogs, with good care, can live to be 10 to 15 years old or older. Before you adopt this dog ask yourself, am I ready to live up to this responsibility?

The top 5 reasons for dogs being abandoned at shelters:

  1. Didn't realize the time & expense involved in raising a dog.
  2. Didn't know Rover would get so big, slobber so much, nip the kids, cost money, bark a lot, steal food, shed all over the house, need to be exercised, etc.
  3. Don't know how to prevent or fix behavior problems.
  4. Person became divorced, sick, injured or died.
  5. Had to move to an apartment or house that doesn't allow dogs.

Again, these questions are presented not to discourage you but to give you a few things to consider. Although we will ALWAYS take back our dogs for ANY reason they don't work out after adoption - and unforeseen events can occur - our goals are lifetime and we do our very best to ensure same.

Keep in mind: Rescue dogs need and deserve your patience. Whether it is house training, getting along with the other pets or just settling in... be prepared. They will need time to adjust to your home and family. Generally allow 2-3 weeks for the dog to become acclimated to your home and routine, and for the dog to become comfortable in his new surroundings. Need help or guidance? Please don’t hesitate to ask us.

Please take the time to carefully read and fill out the application in full. If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us  at chouteaupoundpals@hotmail.com
