To apply for a dog, fill out an adoption
application. Online applications are submitted
directly to us.
Alternately, you may download a form, fill it in, and
mail it to JNMRF, P.O. Box 65, Mendenhall, PA 19357.
Please note that the so called "invisible fence" is not
an acceptable substitute for a physical fence as it will
not protect or restrain a dog.
You may write an email
to express interest in a specific dog you have seen on
our rescue site. Our coordinator may know of other
dogs that might also be of interest which are not yet
listed on the rescue page and discuss them with you as
Arrangements for a
home visit will be made as expeditiously as possible.
No application is approved until after the home visit.
It is very important that we get a feeling for your home
situation in order to best match a dog with a home.
Once your application has been reviewed and approved, we
encourage you to meet the dog if you are able to travel
to the dog's location. In cases where a dog is not
close enough to visit, you can still adopt the dog.
A trial period of one month will be arranged before the
adoption is finalized. We will work with you to
arrange for the dog's transport.
Once a mutual
agreement between you and the JNMRF coordinator is
reached on placing a specific dog in your home, you will
be asked to sign an adoption contract prior to or at the
time of receiving that dog. Your adoption fee
should be paid at that time. By law, adoption fees
are not tax deductible but any amount received above the
requested fee is a donation which is deductible.
We depend on adoption fees and donations to allow us to
continue our work.
