Dog Adoption Application Step 1 of 2 50% GREETINGS! Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog with LCAL. Please note that not every pet will fit into your lifestyle. Our adoption counselors will ask you many questions to determine which dog will do well in your home and which will not. This way we can be sure the dog you get will be the pet you want -- to love for its lifetime! Please understand that we deal with homeless or unwanted animals. Many of our animals come from unknown backgrounds through the local shelters: most have medical or behavioral concerns that we have addressed as well as providing their well care. We were truly their last chance. The adoption process may seem time consuming, but we wish to maximize an animal's chance for a successful, permanent adoption. Adopting a companion pet is a major consideration, and responsible dog ownership demands a considerable commitment. All we ask in return is that you love and care for this dog for its lifetime and make a donation that will allow us to help the next animal in need. Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals.Dog name(s) you are interested in adopting* Your Contact InformationName* First Last Occupation* Home Phone*Cell PhoneWork PhoneEmail* How did you hear about Last Chance at Life?
