PTR Adoption Process & Information

Application Process

Applications must be submitted from our website prior to scheduling a meet & greet with a particular animal. References will be checked (including your veterinarian) and typically takes 48-72 hours. Please call your veterinarian to advise them that they will be receiving a call from a representative at Pet Tails Rescue and to give permission for them to speak to us regarding your pets care.

A representative will contact you after the initial screening process for a phone interview. If you have not heard from us within 5-7 days after application submittal please feel free to email us to follow up. Based on the pups and kitties listed at times we get inundated and receive multiple applications on one animal. Unfortunately at times we do not have the opportunity to respond to every application. The sole discretion of adopter for a particular animal is decided by the director of the organization.

Once your application is approved a meet & greet is set up at our facility in Northwood, NH for you to meet your pet. At this point assuming both the family and pet are in agreement you will be taking your new pet home for a happy ever after!

Please note the following

  • Incomplete Applications will not be processed (please make sure all information is completed).

  • All current and previous animals must be spayed/neutered and have a history of veterinary care and vaccinations.

  • All applicants must be at least 21 years of age.

  • If Renting a property, your landlord will be contacted to approve the placement of pets.

  • Puppies under 6 months old will not be placed in homes where applicants work 8 hours or more and no provisions are made for midday care of pups.

  • Kittens and cats will not be placed in a home with a dog unless there is a current or previous cat in the household or if there is a history of the dog being "cat friendly".

  • We do not allow our cats to be declawed.
