ADOPTION PROCESS GENERAL INFORMATION
The Animal Foundation is pleased to announce that the rescued bulldogs are finally ready to find forever homes!
The online promotion for the opportunity to adopt one of the rescued dogs will open at 11:00 am PST on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019. Entry fees may be purchased for $250 each (this amount is less than the cost of care for each dog during their stay at the shelter and equivalent to the highest adoption fee for any animal at The Animal Foundation). Participants may purchase unlimited entries per household, but to allow as many interested adopters as possible the opportunity to adopt, only one dog per household may be adopted through the online drawing. ALL DOGS ADOPTED WILL BE SPAYED/NEUTERED BEFORE THEY ARE ABLE TO GO HOME.
Potential adopters must complete all required information when purchasing their entries and will be required to meet ALL adoption requirements, including participation in a scheduled in-person adoption screening, before an adoption will be finalized. The Animal Foundation reserves the right to disqualify any entry or refuse an adoption if potential adopters are unable to meet all adoption requirements or if the placement is not in the best interest of the pet. A refund of each $250 entry will be given to any person disqualified or refused an adoption.
To encourage the adoption of more of the incredible shelter pets available at The Animal Foundation year-round, The Animal Foundation will waive the adoption fee of one (1) animal at either of its adoption centers or any off-site adoption event (with the exception of the annual Best in Show) beginning Nov. 11, 2019 for each $250 a participant spends with a valid drawing entry receipt(s). A $10 city license fee ($5 for senior citizens) will apply for adopters living in the City of Las Vegas or the City of North Las Vegas.Adopters living in the City of Henderson must register their dogs with the City of Henderson (license fee is $10).
NOTE: Each entry receipt of $250 is transferable to an eligible adopter, but must be utilized by March 31, 2020. Each participant is responsible for compliance with all pet ownership ordinances of their jurisdiction.
ENTRY FEE PROCEEDS
The entry proceeds from participants who are not selected will be used to support The Animal Foundation’s many lifesaving programs. In the event that a participant does not win the chance to adopt a bulldog or utilize the adoption incentive, entry fee(s) may be considered a tax-deductible donation. Please consult with your tax advisor for more details.
