You will be asked to come visit the dog at our campus in Coal Creek Canyon It is best that all family members, roommates, or anyone who will have consistent contact or responsibility for the dog attend. Other existing household dogs are required to visit as well. Meet and Greets are by appointment only, made by phone, and generally set for mid-mornings. Special considerations are sometimes applicable. If the meeting goes well, we will schedule a Home Visit.
A Thunder Puppy representative will visit your home to ensure that the dog's future environment is safe and secure, and that all previously discussed requirements are met and true. In some cases, (not all) the dog will be present at the Home Visit, so as to gauge his or her reaction to the surroundings. Following the Home Visit, a decision will be made within a 48 hour time-frame concerning moving forward with this process. In special circumstances, the dog may be allowed to stay with the family to begin the Foster Period.
The Foster Period is two weeks. You will be required to sign a Foster Care Agreement that holds you legally liable and responsible for our dog. We have implemented this Foster Period for the best interest of our animals and it is intended to make absolutely sure that you and our Thunder Puppy are a good fit. During this time, you will be asked to stay in contact with TPK9RR via email, phone calls and pictures. We will be available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise and give you support. If a situation occurs that makes you believe it is not the right decision for you or your family, the Foster Period can be immediately terminated and the dog returned. In most cases however, this is a bonding time for you and your potential new best friend and hopefully you are falling in love...
ADOPTION!!!!!!!!!!!! At the end of the Foster Period, providing all went well- you may now officially make OUR dog- YOURS! Our adoption contract is a legal and binding document and you will be asked to sign it, agreeing to all terms when you pay your adoption fee. The fee for all our adoptables ranges from $300 to $400. Their vaccinations will be current, having been given sometime within the past year. Some may be microchipped although not always guaranteed. We work hard while the dogs are in our care to rehabilitate them from whatever behavior issues had put them at-risk or deemed them unadoptable. You have access to anything we know about the dogs' history and useful insight into who they really are. Congratulations! We are a family here at Thunder Puppy and will always want to stay in touch!
