Adoption Enquiry Form

Congratulations on finding a pet that might be suitable for your family! This form, as well as a consultation with a ARQ adoption representative, is designed so we can best understand what you are looking for in your next pet, and help you to find the right match.

  • In order to be considered for adoption you must:
  • Be a home owner or provide written approval from your property manager
  • Have the appropriate fencing and environment for your chosen animal
  • Be available for a property inspection where necessary
  • Be able and willing to spend the time, money and care needed for the animal you have chosen by means of training, medical treatment and proper love and attention of your pet.

Please note that completion of this application and associated consultations etc does not guarantee your adoption approval of an ARQ animal. We will however take every step to match you with the right pet for your needs.
