Madison Small Pups is dedicated to rescuing and caring for small toy breed dogs (20 pounds and under) who are from shelters, puppy mills, found as strays, or are no longer wanted by their owners. We are committed to finding the best home possible for each of our small dogs and are very selective when it comes to fosters and adoptees. We will only place pets in loving, safe environments that are screened and approved by our staff. All dogs are spayed or neutered, given vaccinations, heartworm tested, and started on flea, tick, and heartworm preventative prior to adoption. Our main office is in Madison, Alabama. However, we have foster homes throughout the state. We consider local adoptions only (we do not ship pets).
Adoption Application - The first step in Madison Small Pups adoption process is an adoption application. Answer the questions as fully as possible, and if a question is not applicable, put N/A in the blank rather than skipping it. If you are not applying for a specific dog on the list, just put something in the blank that will tell us that (i.e., poodle, yorkie, small female, or even "any" if you want us to try to match you with a dog). Once the application has been received, it is forwarded to the appropriate dog's foster parent. We hope that you will hear something within a week after submitting an application, but in the case of a dog that is receiving dozens of applications a day, the foster mom may be totally overwhelmed. Also, we sometimes need to wait and evaluate a dog a little longer before deciding what kind of home he needs, and that may be the reason for the delay. You are always welcome to email us and ask the status of your application, but please give us at least a week or two. Vet & Reference Checks - The foster parent will do vet reference checks to make sure that your current or formerly owned dogs are well cared for, altered, up to date on immunizations, and on heartworm preventative. Please note that we never place one of our dogs in a home with an unaltered pet unless your veterinarian certifies that the pet cannot be altered for medical reasons. Personal Contact and Home Visit - If the foster feels that you are a match for the dog you want (or we have a dog that you would be a good match for), he or she will contact you directly to discuss the adoption. If you rent or lease, the foster parent will also ask you at this time to obtain the Landlord's Agreement to Adoption Form. If things are still a "go", the foster parent will arrange for a home visit. If you are local to the dog you have applied for, the foster parent may do the home visit personally and may or may not bring the dog along. If you are not local, the foster parent will find a volunteer in your area to conduct the home visit for us and submit a Home Study Form. We need to see that the dog would have a safe, comfortable, and have a loving environment, and this is best done with a face to face meeting, even if by proxy. We do ask that all members of the family be at home for the visit if at all possible. Transportation - Once the foster parent makes a favorable determination about the home visit, you are in a position to get your new dog. Each of our dogs' biographies indicates where that dog is being fostered. We do not ship or transport our dogs, so before you apply for a dog that is not in your local area, please be sure that you are willing to drive to fetch your new family member. If all issues are equal, we do give preference to local adoptions or those that do not require extreme long distance travel. Furthermore, each foster parent makes the decision as to whether an individual dog is available for a long distance adoption. Contract - You will be asked to sign a legally binding Madison Small Pups Rescue and Adoption contract agreeing to provide the right king of care for the dog and also agreeing not to transfer the dog to any other person. You are legally required to return the dog to us at your expense if you decide at some future time-next week or five years from now- that you are not able or willing to keep him/her. You hereby agree to return the adopted dog to Madison Small Pups if at any time you are no longer willing/able to provide for this animal. You understand that you cannot give/sell this dog to another individual, rescue, or shelter. You are also agreeing that the adoption donation is non-refundable. It is a good idea to read the contract carefully to make sure that you have no problem with it before proceeding with the application process. Updates - Thank you so much for giving a rescued dog a new loving home. Madison Small Pups loves to get updates, especially through Facebook and with pictures. No foster parent ever completely "lets go" of a dog that he or she has cared for. There is always a special place in the heart for one, especially one that has been nursed back to health or taught how to love and be loved. Please keep in touch. As one of our adopters, you will forever be a part of the Madison Small Pups family, and we always welcome your contacts.
