Adoption ​Terms and Conditions
  • I/We agree to provide a safe, loving, indoor home environment to the adopted pet(s).

  • I/We understand that should the adoption not work out, for any reason, the dog will not be given away, sold or put in a shelter but will be returned to Big Paws of the Ozarks.

  • I/We agree to provide food, clean water, bowls, and other supplies for my adopted pet.

  • I/We authorized through submission of my application any veterinarian named to release any information and records concerning my past or present care of animals to Big Paws of the Ozarks. I agree to hold harmless and indemnify said veterinarian for providing such information.

  • I/We understand that Big Paws of the Ozarks and its authorized agents and volunteers assume no liability for damages or injuries caused by the pet(s) adopted and BPOZ and its authorized agents and volunteers cannot guarantee the temperament or other personal characteristics of pet(s).

  • I/We certify that the adoption application information is correct to the best of my knowledge and that my application, whether electronic or hand written, is legally binding. I/We also agree to follow all the rules, regulations and policies of BPOZ. I/We certify that no person residing in the household has ever been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect or abandonment.

  • I understand that Big Paws of the Ozarks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization ran by volunteers. I understand an adoption donation of $150 is necessary to help offset the costs incurred to the rescue and care for each pet. Due to the care and veterinary expenses incurred in foster care, most pets cost us more than the adoption donation we ask, we welcome you to make a larger donation if you are able.

  • I / We understand that owning a dog is a commitment for the dog’s lifetime and if I adopt a dog from BPOZ, I am willing to make that commitment.
