  • By clicking "Apply" below I attest that all of the information I have provided in this application is true and correct. I understand that filling out an application does not guarantee adoption. I understand that if I do adopt a DWR dog, I will sign a contract and this application will become part of that contract. Home visits and follow up calls may be made on a random basis prior to or following adoption. If any information contained in this application is found to be false, I understand that the adoption contract will be considered null and void, and the dog maybe reclaimed by DWR, without a refund of monies paid.
