The Marshall County Humane Society is offering their "Pet of the Week". This weeks pet is a cute puppy that is about 4 months old.
Located at the corner of US 31 and 13th Road in Plymouth, Indiana, you can call the Humane Society at (574) 936-8300. Hours are 10:00 AM -12:00 Noon and 1:00 PM -4:00 PM Monday-Friday and 10:00 AM -12:00 Noon Saturday. Closed Sunday.
The Adoption Proceedure is as follows...
1. Prospective adopters are given an Adoption Application to complete.
2. A copy of our adoption procedures is given to and discussed with the prospective adopter.
3. The application is reviewed with prospective adopters to determine if the approval of the adoption is in the best interests of both the pet and the prospective owner(s).
4. Prospective adopters are shown the available adoption animals.
5. Every adoption application will take at least twenty four hours to review and approve. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption application.
6. If preliminary approval is obtained, the prospective adopter (family) will be notified.
7. Prospective adopters are allowed time to get acquainted with the animal they select.
8. The shelter director will answer any questions they may have at this time.
9. The adopter signs the Adoption Agreement, Spay/Neuter Agreement, and pays the adoption fee.
10. Adopter is encouraged to call us if they have any problems or questions.
11. Within 72 hours of taking the animal home, the adopter is required to take the animal to a participating veterinarian for a health checkup. At this time, annual shots and other recommended vaccinations should be discussed with the veterinarian. If necessary, an appointment should be made to have the animal spayed or neutered. The adopter should present their copy of the adoption agreement to the veterinarian at this time, which will entitle the adopter to a discount price for the spay/neuter surgery, if the chosen veterinarian participates in the MCHS spay/neuter program. The adopter will be responsible for paying the discounted surgery fee, as well as all other veterinarian charges, directly to the veterinarian.
12. If the adopter returns the spay/neuter rebate form, complete with a paid invoice showing the adopted animal was spayed or neutered, the adopter will be given a $10 rebate by MCHS (allow at least 3 weeks from submission of rebate and proof of surgery).
13. Shelter staff may make follow-up calls from time to time, to see how the adopted animal and family are doing, and offer help where needed.
