Completion of this questionnaire does not guarantee the adoption of a cat from Dog Rescue Newcastle (DRN).
This questionnaire is a tool designed to help us source the best possible forever homes for the dogs and cats that we rescue.
If your questionnaire is approved, then a ‘house check’ must be completed by a DRN volunteer who will report back to DRN. If the ‘house’ check is positive then you'll be invited to meet the cat. If your application is successful, the adoption fee must be paid in full prior to the release of the cat.
All DRN dogs and cats are subject to a two-week trial.
If you decide during the two-week trial that you do not want to keep the dog/cat, then when you return the dog to DRN, the adoption fee - minus a $100 administration fee or your deposit - is refunded.
If more than one application is received for a particular dog or cat, then DRN will decide which application is the most suitable for the dog/cat.
If the dog/cat you apply for is adopted out to someone else, DRN volunteers can, upon request, try to recommend another suitable dog/cat for you.
Please keep an eye on our website www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au or Facebook page because we add new dogs and cats almost every day.
Thank you for applying to adopt a rescue dog and cat and saving a life!
We understand that it may be quicker for you to get a dog or cat from a pet shop or breeder so we appreciate your making the effort to adopt a dog/cat and save a life.
