Trial Period for Potential Adoption

Dog's Name for Trial
I understand that a trial adoption is for one week. After that week has lapsed I will contact the rescue to update on how the trial run went and if I want to proceed with adoption. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand during the trial period the dog still belongs to Adoption First Animal Rescue. I have no legal claims to this dog and the rescue is entitled to pick up the dog at any point. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand upon completing my trial run I will be expected to pay the adoption fee in full in order to complete the adoption process. If I choose to not adopt, then there will be no adoption fee. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand that if the trial run is not working out I will contact the rescue to determine the best course of action and an agreed upon time to return the dog. I understand that the rescue is volunteer based and may not be available right away. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand during the trial period decisions regarding medical care of the dog is up to the rescue. If at any point I feel the dog needs to be seen by a veterinarian I will contact the rescue and explain what is happening, at that point the rescue will come to a decision. If the rescue does not feel the dog needs medical treatment and I chose to take the dog to the veterinarian anyways, it is my responsibility to cover all costs. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand if I request a copy of any medical treatment the dog has had so far, the rescue will provide documentation. However, the entire adoption folder with other information will not be made available to me until I finalize the adoption. INITIAL BELOW *
I understand I cannot give this dog to another person even if temporarily. INITIAL BELOW *
