If I adopt a Rescue Train dog, I can make a donation of at least $250 to help rescue and care for other abandoned dogs. I understand that my adoption donation is often just a fraction of the cost that The Rescue Train has spent on boarding, spaying and neutering, vaccines, microchips, medical costs and dog training. I understand that my donation is a gift freely given, not a purchase price for a dog. No goods or services have been or will be provided in exchange for the donation. I understand that any donation made is not refundable. *
I understand that a home visit is required and that a home visit does not guarantee placement: *
I understand that submitting an application does not mean I am approved to a adopt or foster a dog from the Rescue Train. The Rescue Train has the right to refuse any applicant for any reason. The Rescue Train is not obligated to provide a reason or explanation for refusing adoption to an applicant: *
