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 a minimum donation of $180 for dogs and $95 for cats is 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.
