Laura's Hope Rescue

Due to the overwhelming response for dogs/puppies, We are limiting each dog/puppy to 5 applications. Also, we are only adopting a 200-mile radius from zip code 18824.
We will NOT ship dogs.
Thank you for considering rescuing an animal in need of a good home.
The adoption of a life-long friend should not be impulsive,
but rather a carefully-made decision that will ensure a loving, lasting relationship.

To ensure the safety and best interests of the animals we have taken into our care,
we ask that everyone who is interested in adopting an animal from this rescue answer fill out this application.
Please be aware that in doing so, you are giving the volunteers of this organization
the right to check your references by telephone and to come to your residence for a home visit.
Please read this before you fill out the application. 
DO NOT fill out this application if:
1. Currently, you have a dog/cat in your home that is not spayed or neutered. 
2. Current dogs /cats in the household are not current with their vaccinations.
3. If any question is not answered completely, we will not call you for the answers.
If you do not provide the correct information (for us to do our job correctly)

$600 (non altered) $200 refunded once altering is done - Spay or Neutered

DONATION for dogs over 5 to cover fees and transport to rescue
Our fee helps cover the spaying/neutering, first shots, microchipping and
transportation from the originating shelter.
All of our dogs that come from the south are heart worm tested and if found positive are treated before adoption.
You will receive all of the dog's medical records as well as a sample of dog food the dog was eating.  
All of our dogs are good with other dogs, school age kids, and are currently crated for up to 5 hours a day.
Our dogs walk well on a leash, and most of them know simple commands.  ( Puppies are not crate, house or leash trained )
Descriptions of our dogs are as accurate as we can be.
Most of these dogs do not have a past, and if they do, we indicate that on their Petfinder profile.  
We do not know the exact breed or how big a puppy will be when they grow up.  
** Sponsored dogs (money has been donated toward adoption fee) varies from amount donated.
You must be 21 or older to adopt one of our dogs.
An approved  application is good for only 6 months from the date of submitting.
