Our Adoption Process and Policy
Our online application is available under the link located below:
Please do not fill out on a mobile application as it does not allow form to be submitted. It should be filled out and submitted on a computer.
When your application is received we process by reviewing all references and then setting up your conference or meeting with the foster family after those references have been checked. Because our foster families volunteer to open their hearts and homes to our rescues, we try to lessen the amount of interference with their lives by only allowing pre-approved adopters to meet the dog and/or call the foster family to ask questions about the dog. The pre-approval process does not obligate you and would NOT require a home visit until you have spoken with or met with the foster family to be sure the dog is right for you. Once that occurs and you are committed to adopting our rescue, then we will schedule your home visit.
PLEASE NOTE: SOME DOGS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR A MEET AND GREET. Because we are a foster based rescue, our rescues are transported to our foster families AFTER they have been vetted and are cleared for transport medically. Although our company has headquarters in New Jersey and our second location in Mass, where they end up being fostered depends on which foster is available at that time (our pet finder site only allows us to post in New Jersey or Mass, not where dogs are fostered). Our foster team members are located from North Carolina all the way to Southern Maine. IF THEY ARE BEING FOSTERED OUTSIDE OF THE AREA THAT YOU COULD EASILY TRAVEL TO, we arrange for you to speak with the foster to determine if the dog is what you are expecting. So, if the dogs are not being fostered close enough to visit prior to adoption and this is not acceptable to you, please do not fill out an application.
In many cases our rescues are adopted directly from their vetting and quarantine and do not even get to foster. Many families are comfortable for a direct adoption, especially with puppies or with the evaluation provided by our references and our rescue trainer. In this case they are transported to the adopter and our adoption contract provides for a thirty day refund of your adoption fee for any reason. The dog is returned to us if they are not working and it cannot be resolved to yours and to our satisfaction.
From this point, with all information on the application being acceptable and the home visit satisfactory, the applicant is approved and the adoption takes place. Your contracts are emailed and your adoption fee will be $350 (that includes all medical and transport fees). Once contracts are signed and your adoption fee paid, arrangements are made to transport the dog to his/her home, whether it be from a foster or from our vet clinic.
Beyond the thirty refund policy in our adoption contract, Diamond Dogs Rescue, Inc. offers a lifetime guarantee on all of its animals. If for any reason an owner needs to return the adopted dog, Diamond Dogs Rescue, Inc. always welcomes the pooch's return and your contract will provide for this.
