Sample SOS Adoption Paperwork
We know, paperwork is a pain, but this paperwork helps us keep track of our dogs’ needs and set appropriate expectations.
Below are examples of some of the paperwork we use in our rescue program to give you an idea of common terms and situations.
Just prior to adoption, the paperwork relevant to the dog you will be adopting will be prepared especially for your dog and adoption. Please read all of this customized paperwork carefully PRIOR to committing to an adoption and paying an adoption donation.
Your Adoption Counselor is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about this paperwork.

This is an example of our standard adoption contract. Everything in here is important and non-negotiable, and this document is legally binding once you sign it, so please read this carefully if you are considering adopting a dog from SOS.
This Adoption Kit is provided to all of our adopters (via email and also in print for in-person adoptions). The Kit has a lot of useful information for you and your new family member, including how to register the dog’s microchip, how to activate the free pet insurance, recommended products and support services, and the First Vet Visit Checklist. Be sure to read through this entire document – maybe several times! There is a ton of important information in here!
