Steps To Adopt a Scottish Terrier

Scottish Terrier Rescue Northwest, was founded to assist in the rescue and placement of Scottish Terriers from individual owners, humane societies, Veterinary clinics, animal shelters and Scotties who are homeless. To protect rescued Scotties, Scottish Terrier Rescue Northwest attempts to place rescued Scotties as home companions in the homes of suitable owners, who agree to care for and protect their rescued Scottie, and share their home with the same consideration they would give a family member.

1. Complete the Application for Scottish Terrier Adoption by clicking on the button below.  

  Application Form

 

This comprehensive questionnaire helps to determine EXACTLY what you want in a rescue dog.  Please be as thorough as possible.

If you are having difficulty with our form, you may email us at placement@scottyrescue.org

2. A Scottish Terrier Rescue Coordinator will make a “match” to your needs, description, and environment. This match may take some time so please be patient with us. We want the Scottie to be just as comfortable with you and you are with it. Some placements take longer to make than others, such as a “wheaten” Scottish Terrier female, with an assertive personality, who is less than 1 year old and loves cats” may take longer to place than “a friendly Scottie less than 5 years old.” So please bear with us as we try to make the most successful match possible.

3. You will then get to meet with your potential “Adoptee” in several different settings before the adoption is finalized. Again, we want to ensure a successful match.

4. You will then be asked to meet with the Rescue coordinator to discuss any final thoughts or concerns.

An adoption contract must be signed, and an adoption fee will be charged. Please note that fees vary from dog to dog, depending on the medical care it received while in rescue. You should be aware of the fee prior to the signing of the contract.

5. The Scottie will then be placed in its new and permanent home.

6. A series of follow up calls/visits will be made by your Rescue agent to ensure that the Scottie is adjusting well and the placement is going smoothly. This also helps to thwart any potential behavior problems before they get out of hand.

We encourage all adoptive families to stay in contact with your Rescue agent throughout the course of your Scotty's life. If you ever have any problems or questions, do not hesitate to call on your Rescue agent for help and support.
