We know you work so very hard and with deep connection to your dogs and have very particular adoption requirements. Our plan is always to work with you to help you pre-screen over 600 adoption applications!!!
Up to 3,000 people come to the events and neither you, they or we want to see a five hour line of frustrated folk in front of your area. However, don't worry as it is always YOU who decides who your dog goes to and we hope that by us doing hard work beforehand, you can spend more valuable time with the adopters, finding the best fit for your dogs.
We have 30 fiercely dedicated, trained volunteers who will do the screening on your behalf, using our on line General Adoption Application. You created it with us for all attending shelters and rescues. Please ask me for our General App for your perusal and please come to screener training so you can see what we do and help us continue to develop it to your standards. All the applicant info will be shared with you throughout the process!
The events start at 1pm, but those who pre-screened get in at 10am and 11am. We have up to 500 pre-screened families at the events, which is why we stagger even the pre-screened entries. Then over 1,000 people line up for the 1pm entry and for this crowd we ask them to complete a printed app with the same questions as the online app and bring this to you when they enter.
We will be in touch with you with lots more info and stuff very soon.
