How did you find Dolly’s Legacy? (Dolly's Legacy Website, Petfinder, Facebook, AdoptaPet, Friend, other?)

We require prospective adopters to meet both us and the animal, fill out an application and be interviewed. The final approval for an application is not given until we have met you & you have met the prospective new pet. Adoptions are not done a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are selected based upon the best match of the particular pet's temperament and needs. If an application is approved we may require a home check by our volunteers to ensure the pet's safety. These pets are not for sale and the decision of where to place them is solely the responsibility of Dolly’s Legacy Animal Rescue. We reserve the right to refuse placement of our pets to any individual who does not meet our criteria. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for refusal confidential within our organization. The welfare of our rescue animals is our top priority. By submitting this form, you agree that you have read the above policy and you attest that the above statements are true to the best of your knowledge & you give permission to Dolly’s Legacy to contact your references.
