I accept this dog as my companion pet, and IMAGINE pet rescue
accepts my offer to adopt the dog. I have agreed to offer a tax-deductible, non-refundable donation of $400 for puppies (dogs up to 1 year old), $350 for a dog 1 to 4 years old, $250 for a dog over 5-6 years old and $150 for seniors (dogs 7+) to assist with the payment of prior veterinary care for the dog, as well as enabling IMAGINE pet rescue
to rescue additional animals in the future. Transportation to adopters will incur a $125 transportation donation. Puppies are altered prior to adoption, typically at 6-8 weeks of age. However, if for some reason a puppy is unable to undergo surgery prior to adoption, the adoption fee is $400 plus a $150 refundable spay/neuter deposit. Upon receipt of proof of spay/neuter, a refund of $150 will be issued.
