    I certify that the above information is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I further agree that any adoption 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 the minimum adoption donation for an adult cat is $150, $250 for two adult cats and $300 for three. Kittens are $200 each, $350 for two, and $575 for three. An adult dog is $350 (over 10 months of age), $450 for puppies (dogs 10 months of age and younger) -- certain breeds may be at the discretion of Hopalong. Some adoption prices vary. These fees are 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.
