how to get in good shape for event day screening
you missed the online pre-screening, dont worry, the rescues will start processing your application at the event.
There will be 100s of wonderful rescued dogs and puppies to choose from all day long. Lots of different rescues and shelters bring their dogs to the event to find homes. They will screen you and if successful you will be proud owners of a fabulous new pup. The screening process is complex and may not be completed on event day, but they will finish up chatting to your references very quickly after the event. and let you know if you have been successful. Not only do you have to pass screening but the rescues will decide if you are a good fit for any dog you choose.
What to bring with you:.
Bring vet records from ALL vet clinics on each dog owned currently or in the past 5 years. including vaccination records, Heartworm prevention history and annual heartworm testing. For cats, please bring rabies proof (this includes indoor cats…the rabies vaccination is required by law for all dogs and cats!)
proof that pets have been spayed/neutered via vet records or prior adoption records.
Bring a purchase history of all heartworm prevention on each dog (current or owned in past 5 years)
Letter from Landlord / home owner (if you are not the home owner) with contact number, plus a pet friendly lease., noting any breed, size or number of pet restrictions.
Contact name and number for 2 unrelated and accessible personal references.
Make sure all your references ( landlord, personal reference and preferably veterinarian) are contactable on event day as the rescues will need to call them and will not be able to proceed with your application until a later date if they can’t be contacted.
If you have dogs, bring them with you so we can do meet and greets with the dog trainers. bring people with you to hold them outside at “doggie check in” as they cannot go inside the arena.. Bring rabies proof and your id.
