Please bring all papers you have on this dog with you when you come to release  him/her to Airedale Rescue. Although we do not give registration papers with our adoption dogs, it is helpful for our records to keep track of their origins. Please bring  his/her health records and all veterinary certificates (such as rabies and proof of neutering) which are required to obtain proper licensing for the dog.

I certify that I am the legal owner of this dog, free and clear of all other interests.
On _________, 200__, I hereby transfer ownership of ________________________to
________________________ of the Airedale Rescue and Adoption.

I understand that every effort will be made to place my dog in the best home possible, suitable to his personality.  I hereby relinquish all claims to said dog, and I understand that if the Airedale Rescue and Adoption Service concludes that this dog is unadoptable because of health or temperament reasons only, he/she will be humanely euthanized by a veterinarian.

I further certify that this dog has not bitten anyone within the last ten (10) days.

By my signature below, I hereby authorize the above-named dog’s veterinarians to release all medical records to _______________________ on request in person or via fax.

Signed:_________________________________     Date  ____/____/______

Every dog accepted by the Airedale Rescue and Adoption is properly clipped, bathed, brought up to date on all shots, checked for heartworm, neutered/spayed (if not already done), treated for any ailments including heartworm infestation, and kept in one of three foster homes available.  Sometimes these foster homes are already filled, and one or more of the adoptable dogs have to be kept for a time in a local boarding kennel.

While an adoption fee helps to generally cover routine veterinary expenses, there are times when extra measures are required to medically make a dog acceptable for adoption, and certainly there is no money left from an adoption fee for boarding or advertising. 

For these reasons, we humbly ask that you find it in your heart to help us with the financial burdens of placing your dog by giving a donation.  Please make any checks payable to Airedale Rescue.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
