Puppies born into or received by Poquita Paws Rescue under the age of 8 weeks old cannot leave their foster home until they have received a minimum of 2 vaccinations 21 days apart.
All puppies must be spayed and neutered before being officially adopted from Poquita Paws Rescue.
Adoption applications for puppies will be processed as soon as they are received and the best home selected based on Poquita Paws Rescue criteria. Once a home is approved and the chosen puppy has received their second set of vaccinations they may be moved to the potential adopter’s home.
At the appropriate time a third round of vaccinations will be given at Poquita Paws Rescue expense.
If the puppy does not weigh enough to go to surgery after the second vaccination, they may go to the potential adopter’s home as a foster dog. A spay/neuter contract must be completed at this time and the adoption donation will be collected.
Once the puppy is ready for surgery, an appointment will be scheduled for spay/neuter at a time convenient for the foster/adopter. Spay/neuter surgery will be performed at Poquita Paws Rescue expense. Once surgery is complete an Adoption Contract is signed by an Poquita Paws Rescue representative and the adopter and the adoption is complete.
Until the puppy is spayed/neutered the puppy is the sole property of Poquita Paws Rescue.
