I have read and understood The Adoption Process.

Click here for the adoption process.
I understand and agree that Dalmatian Rescue of Colorado, Inc. (DRCI) may refuse my adoption contract for any reason whatsoever and that submission of this application is in no way a guarantee of acceptance or placement. I further state and affirm that all information provided by me on this application is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and is subject to verification by DRCI, its officers or assignees and further understand that falsifying information will result in my application being denied.
If a Dalmatian or Dalmatian wannabe is placed with me/us, I/we agree to cooperate with Dalmatian Rescue of Colorado, Inc. (DRCI) in its attempt to provide a smooth adoption. I also agree to contact DRCI about problems that might arise in the future. Should the dog need to be placed, or euthanized (prior to normal old age), I agree that I will contact DRCI first and will return the dog to DRCI at a location designated by DRCI. I further agree during the natural life of this dog that I will NOT take this dog to an animal shelter nor sell or give this dog to anyone else without express written authorization from DRCI.
Every reasonable effort is made to screen each Dalmatian or Dalmatian wannabe for health and temperament problems before making the dog available for adoption through DRCI. However, DRCI, its officers, board of directors, and agents cannot guarantee the health or temperament of the Dalmatians or Dalmatian wannabes available for adoption other than what is known at the time of adoption. DRCI assumes no liability for any problems arising from an adopted Dalmatian or Dalmatian wannabe in the future.
For each Dalmatian or Dalmatian wannabe adopted we request a minimum donation, to help cover expenses incurred, payable at the time of adoption:
