Adoption Terms and Conditions

  • In order to be considered for an adoption, you must:
    • Be at least 18 years of age.
    • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household.
    • Have the landlord’s consent to bring an animal onto the property.
  • Puppy/kitten or adult has to be given a 14 days chance to settle and get to know their new family, their new boundaries, new home and environment and new ways. They will be unsettled and consider their Haven their home so when moved they are unsure, become stressed and need reassuring thus a 14 days chance will give them the time to adapt.
  • We don’t allow dogs/pups/cats/kittens to be adopted to homes with already unsterilized pets, as it contradicts to our belief of the importance of sterilization, not only from a breeding perspective but also for all the health benefits of having your pets sterilized.
  • When the animal is no longer wanted they have to be returned to us, as you are their adoptive family but they still belong to LLF and therefore cannot be handed down to family members or friends, or sold, or given away to other organizations including SPCA or just any person.
  • All our animals do not get adopted on a “whoever chooses the pet first will get it” but it is rather the best home for that animal that will be chosen first.
  • Animals can’t be adopted as gifts for families, friends or children. Children are only allowed pets as long as their parents remain responsible until the child is old enough.
  • We reserve the right at any time during the adoption process to decline an application, without explanation.
  • Please do understand adopting a rescue dog or cat or other animal is for life (10-15 year commitment), not a few days, weeks or months, it is FOR LIFE! So make sure you are ready for this commitment.
