Mission Statement: To rescue, restore to health and re-home purebred Papillons through the provision of appropriate fostering and assessment, medical care, training, education and assisting Papillon owners and shelters in need. To actively recruit and train volunteers to assist in all aspects of rescue operations. To raise funds for the purpose of providing necessary health care and other services to Papillons in the care of PapAdopters & Placement Service.
Our adoption process begins with a submitted application and consists of the following steps, enabling us to get to know you and your family, and to ensure every placement is a permanent one: 1. Phone Interview: The dog’s foster home will contact you by phone. In this call, you will describe what you’re looking for in your new dog, and we will more thoroughly describe our adoption policies, as well as answer any questions you have about dogs you have applied for. 2. Veterinary Reference Check: We will contact your veterinarian to ensure your current or most recent dogs are up-to-date on their vaccinations, and have received regular HW testing. Please be sure you list all veterinarians who may have care records for your pets. 3. Personal Reference Check: We will contact your personal references and ask questions regarding where they know you from, how long they’ve known you, if they’ve ever seen you with your animals in your home, etc. THESE REFERENCES CANNOT BE FAMILY MEMBERS OR PEOPLE LIVING IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD AS YOU. 4. Meet and Greet: In some cases, it may be advisable to meet the Papillon in question prior to a home visit. This will occur after the initial phone interview and reference checks have been completed. 5. Home Visit: The purpose of this visit is to verify any information you have listed on your application (e.g. fenced-in yard, crate, etc.) and to ensure we are matching you with the correct Papillon for your home environment. All family members MUST be present at the home visit. PLEASE NOTE: The adoption process CANNOT be completed until a home visit has been performed. 6. Execution of Adoption Contract and Payment of Adoption Donation: PapAdopters & Placement Service requires adopters to sign an adoption contract stipulating, among other things, the standard of care required for your dog. We also require an adoption donation, which is based on the age and health of the dog, and has been discussed and agreed to previously. The adoption donation is payable in cash or check.
