I certify that the above information is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I further agree that any doption made on the basis of this questionnaire is null and void if any of these statements are untrue. I understand that Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue's main concern is that all pets be properly cared for by their owners. I understand a minimum adoption donation of $150 for cats, $275 for dogs (over 6 months of age), $375 for puppies (dogs 6 months of age and younger)- certain breeds may be at the discretion of Hopalong, and Chihuahua adults for $150 is necessary to offset the costs incurred related to rescue, care and adoption. I understand that Hopalong/Second Chance Animal Rescue reserves the right to deny adoption of any animal.
