SPAY / NEUTER AGREEMENT
This is a contract of MANDATORY
Spay/Neuter as defined herein.
This spay agreement is an agreement that the female dog will not produce a
litter of puppies, either as purposely bred or by accidental breeding. The
rescuer's female dog, adopted as a puppy, will be spayed prior to adoption. If
the dog's health does not allow this agreement to be honored, permanent
ownership by the adopter is contingent upon a veterinary statement. This
statement will be by the veterinarian that has seen this dog, examined this dog
and has evaluated this dog as not yet in emotional and/or physical condition for
spay. Based on this situation, rescuer, not the adopter, and the veterinarian
will extend the length of time to be spayed immediately after the dog's
condition has improved.
Verification of sterilization by the veterinarian is to be mailed to rescuer
within fourteen (14) days of the spay. It is the responsibility of the adopter,
not the veterinarian, to be sure that rescuer has received this statement. If
this agreement is not honored, the adopter will acknowledge and agree that the
contract has been violated, and the adopter will transport the dog back to
rescuer with no refund.
The rescued male dog shall be neutered prior to adoption. Proof of
sterilization by the veterinarian must be provided to rescuer and given to
adopter. If the health of the dog delays the neuter, the veterinarian that has
seen this dog, examined this dog, and evaluated this dog must provide a
statement to inform as to why neutering cannot be done and when it can. Rescuer
will then reidentify the guidelines based on the dog's condition. It is the
responsibility of the adopter, not the veterinarian, to be sure that rescuer has
received this statement. If this agreement is not honored the adopter will
acknowledge and agree that the contract has been violated, and the adopter will
transport the dog back to rescuer with no refund.
