Doggone Happy Animal Rescue (DHAR) is a 501c3, non-profit, foster-based animal rescue. We are located in Delaware, and we have fosters throughout Delaware and parts of Maryland. We rescue dogs from anywhere in the United States. You will see dogs on our Facebook and Webpage from rescues and shelters all over the United States. If the dog "Speaks to you", we have transport connections available.
The first step in the process of adopting a pet from DHAR is to complete the adoption application. The application is lengthy, but all the information is necessary in order to provide us with the information that ensures a safe, happy, and healthy home for our animals. Working with you, we will be able to determine if the adoption is in the pet's best interest, and the process helps to determine if the pet is well suited for your family's lifestyle. Please provide detailed information for all questions asked. More information is always better, in the case of adopting pets.
Our ADULT Dog (6 Months & Up) adoption fee of $300 covers the cost of microchipping, vaccinations, spay or neutering and other medical care
Our PUPPY (Under 6 Months) adoption fee of $300 covers the cost of microchipping, vaccinations and other medical care. It is the responsibility of the adopter to follow through with spay/neuter. The State of Delaware required that all puppies who are adopted prior to a time that is deemed safe for spay/neuter must have an additional $75 spay/neuter deposit. This deposit will be collected and held in escrow, then returned to the adopter upon proof of spay/neuter/ You will also have to sign an early release agreement that indicates the puppy is too young for sterilization at the time of the adoption, but guarantees that spay/neuter will be done as soon as age appropriate
TO QUALIFY FOR ADOPTION, YOU MUST:
Be at least 23 years of age, and have a valid state identification card stating your current address/
Have the knowledge and consent of landlord, if this is relevant to your living situation.
Be willing and able to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper nourishment and care, and training a pet.
Be open to one or more scheduled home inspections by DHAR or an approved rescue affiliated with DHAR.
Be open to one or more meet and greets with all family members that will reside with the animal.
Please note: We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. Please be advised that we will not adopt to any persons who mislead or misrepresent any information on this application.
