Tank is a big happy boy who loves to play! Tank is approximately 1 1/2 yrs old and 70lbs. Tank has some issues with resource guarding (protecting his food, toys) and has spent several months receiving training to resolve his guarding issues. He is doing really well and is super eager to please, though we still wouldn't recommend him for a home with small children. Tank loves to play with other dogs and needs an active home where he can get lots of exercise. Tank also needs a home that understand that he needs a home that gives him a steady structure and routine. Tank is such a fun and handsome boy - we just know you'll fall in love with him! Dogs in our foster care program are: spayed/neutered microchipped up to date on all vaccinations negative for heartworms and on regular heartworm preventative in loving foster care homes where they have received training and socialization to help them fit into your home more quickly. There are a few steps to set up the adoption. Complete the PAWS4IrvingAnimalsAdoptionAppContract. You can type in the information, but must initial each of the statements and then print/sign it. You can then send it back as a PDF to PAWSforIrvingAnimalsLLC@gmail.com or fax it to 214-764-2138. If you are meeting us at an event, you can complete the application at the event itself. We can also bring an application to you at the home visit.
Schedule a home visit. After the adoption application is received, a volunteer from PAWS for Irving Animals will visit your home with the pet you are interested in adopting. We will ensure that the pet you are interested in has the opportunity to meet all the members of your immediate family, including other pets, to ensure that this adoption is a good fit. We can even do a trial adoption for a period of up to 3 days if you would like.
Pay the adoption fee. The adoption fee is $200 for dogs under 12months and $150 for dogs over 12 months of age. The adoption fee covers many elements: full vetting (spay, vaccinations, etc), registration of microchip to you, etc. You have 3 options for payment: Via check. This can be either given to foster/volunteer at adoption hand-off or mailed as a check made out to "PAWS for Irving Animals" with "Adoption - DOG NAME" in the memo line.
