Please read this first.
Occasionally, potential adopters provide foster care for a rescue dog before the adoption is finalized. This gives everyone time to see if the dog is a good match for the family. Due to this, we ask that you complete all sections of this application, even if you don't plan to become a regular volunteer for Havanese Rescue. Thank you! If you are interested in volunteering with HRI, please register as a volunteer.
NOTE: You will be asked to provide the names and phone numbers for FOUR personal references and one veterinary reference. Please collect that information prior to beginning the application.
