Aussie and Me Animal Rescue Puppy Adoption Guidelines and Requirements : •Puppies are MATCHED with an adopter or adopters are presented with 2-3 puppies that we feel will be a good match for them and vice versa.•Puppies are NOT first come first serve.•Must be enrolled in puppy class within 30 days of adoption.•Puppies are adopted out with a spay/neuter contract, requiring the puppy to be spayed between 5-6 months of age unless temperament requires it to be done earlier.•The cost of spay/neuter is covered in the adoption fee IF you have the procedure performed at a clinic in your area that we work with. If you choose to have the procedure done at your vet, you will assume the cost and the adoption fee is NOT reduced. •Puppies are adopted out current on age appropriate vaccines, deworming, have been on monthly heart worm/flea preventative and have a negative fecal exam upon being adopted.•We will not adopt a puppy into a home that currently has another puppy under the age of 6 months, not spayed/neutered and/or has not completed its full series of vaccines.•We will not adopt puppies under the age of 6 months to homes where there are children under 6 years of age. We may consider a placement based on the puppies personality and after meeting the child(ren) and viewing how they interact with a puppy but we will not guarantee an adoption.
