PA Caring for K-9’s is a NON-PROFIT, all breed dog rescue, run solely on a volunteer foster home basis. We save dogs out of many high kill shelters. They are then fostered in each of our fosters homes. Giving personal care and one on one training to each dog.
YOUR APPLICATION. Our Adoption Application helps us to make a good match between the dog and the adopter. Before you begin, you will want to make sure the following has been completed: Your current pets and any deceased pets, must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. We do allow for excused medical issues, but we require veterinarian documentation. Do your research on the type of dog (breed, age, temperament, personality, etc.) that is the best fit for your lifestyle and your family. We need three, NON-FAMILY references that we can contact for background information. If you rent, speak with your landlord about any pet restrictions and fees that may be involved. Look for a trainer, dog walker, doggie daycare, etc. to have a plan ready for your dog’s long term well-being. Once your application is submitted to us, we will review your application. Our approval process takes at least 10 days. This review includes: Contacting your Vet – Give them the authorization to speak to us. We will need verification of records for the past 5 years. If you go to a vet clinic, we will need copies of the records for verification. Contacting your landlord – let them know we will be calling. Contacting your references – Let them know we will be calling. If all these things check out, we will then phone you for an interview. The most common delay of an application is being unable to reach your references or not having the authority to speak with your vet. SELECTING A DOG OR PUPPY. Once you are approved to adopt with us, we will setup a date and time for you to meet the dog or puppy by email. All of our foster homes are located in South Central Pennsylvania and Northern MD. You may also want to attend one of our many adoption events in order to meet many dogs at one time. You can see a current list of our available dogs on our website, our Facebook site, Petfinder, AdoptaPet, RescueMe, RescueGroups, and Craigslist. We are not a first come, first serve rescue. We adopt each dog to the best fit home. No dog or puppy can be held or reserved until after your application is approved. If the dog you wanted was adopted before your application is approved, We will gladly be able to help you select a new dog or puppy. There is no need to submit a separate application for each dog. We Do Not notify you if the dog you applied for was adopted before your application is approved. ADOPTION FEES AND CONTRACT. At the time of adoption, you must complete an Adoption Contract and provide payment of our adoption fee. (Check, Cash or money order). Adult dogs that are spayed and neutered – $350. Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered: $350 plus a $50 deposit that will be refunded with proof of spay/neuter certificate. Pack9 does not conduct blood profiles for the dogs, unless it is recommended by our veterinarian. We do not administer Lyme or Lepto vaccinations. Pack9 does not conduct DNA tests on the dogs we adopt out. We go by the information the is provided by the shelters and veterinarians. As a result, we cannot guarantee the exact breed of any dog or puppy.
