Are you ready to find your next best friend with Tiny N Tall Rescue?! We are sooooo ready to help you!! If you are interested in adopting from us, please read our adoption requirements & our adoption process below, before filling out an application.
TNT's Adoption Requirements:
We do adopt out of state, however, The Applicant, ALL dogs, AND anyone that is living in the home, are responsible for coming to meet the dog, and transporting home. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are based out of Saint Charles, IL. and All of our available dogs are in foster homes through out the state.
Everyone living in your household must be in agreement on adopting.
Must have any approval needed by either a Landlord or Association.
The Adopter must be at least 21 years of age.
Must go through adoption approval process by TNT before meeting our adoptable dogs.
Requirements for ALL resident dogs in the home:
All resident dogs must be spayed/neutered by 6 months old. If they have a medical condition that prevents it, we will need a note from your vet.
All dogs must also have:
• Up to date Rabies Vaccine
• Up to date DHLPP vaccine
• Monthly Flea and Tick prevention
• Monthly Heartworm Prevention
(We will make exceptions for certain circumstances at TNT's discretion)
We require all of our adopters to sign their newly adopted pet up for a 6 week basic training course. You will be required to provide us proof once signed up & completed.
Our Adoption Process:
Fill out and submit our adoption application.
We require a one time $20 NON-REFUNDABLE application donation before we start to process your application. The application donation will also be subtracted from your final adoption fee. The $20 application donation help all of our doggies for anything they may need.
Once your application has been filled out and submitted for review, and after we receive your $20 application donation, a volunteer from our applications team will reach out to let you know it is being processed.
Our Adoption Team will start by reaching out to conduct your personal phone interview, they will check your vet and personal references, and will email you with instructions on how to complete your virtual home check.
The application process typically takes about 5-7 days, from start to finish. Please remember, we are all volunteers, so please be patient if it takes a little longer.
Once all of that is completed, and your application has been reviewed and approved for adoption from TNT, you will then receive an approval email with instructions on the next steps to adopt from TNT!
**We do not adopt out siblings or two dogs at once unless stated otherwise that they are a bonded pair. **You will not be considered to adopt from us if you have not had your current dog for a minimum of 6 months.
**You will not be considered to adopt a second TNT dog until you've had your adopted dog for a minimum of 6 months
** We do not adopt our dogs out to be livestock guarding dogs or outside dogs. You will not be considered to adopt from us if these are your intentions.
**These are strict policies & no exceptions will be made**
After your Application is Approved:
**Our number one goal is to make sure the home that is chosen, is the best fit for that specific dog. Your application will be forwarded for review to the foster home of the dog you have applied for about 1-2 weeks before they are ready for adoption. *Please note that when a dog is being shown on our website and Facebook, this does not automatically mean they are ready for adoption. We require all dogs to be on a minimum of 1-2 week intake hold. Many times this hold can be longer to insure the dog is healthy enough, and behaviorally ready for their furever home.
Please be patient and the foster home will contact you when the dog is almost ready for adoption. We take multiple applications per dog, and the foster home will be looking over all of the approved interested applicants to see which family may be the right fit for the TNT doggie. They will then decide who to set up a meet and greet with. Everyone who lives in the household must be present for the meet and greet. If you have a dog, that dog must also be present at the time of meeting. If the meet and greet goes well for everyone, you can adopt the dog that day and take them to their new furever home!! We accept credit card, cash, or check for form of payment for the adoption fee donation. Credit Card is preferred due to any hand to hand exchanging.
If you have ANY questions about the process or even after, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
