At Friends of Scales (FoS), we are dedicated to doing everything in our power to find the best possible homes for all of our adoptable animals! This dedication has led us to developing guidelines for potential adopters in order to insure that the animal and their new home are totally compatible. First time adopters looking to take home their very first cold blooded friend from our organization are encouraged to submit an application. First time pet owners are welcome and we happily work with you to provide the best care possible! This form is filled out one time and remains in our records. If you have relinquished to our rescue before, you are still encouraged to fill out an application for an animal if you so desire. Relinquishing to us in the past does not necessarily prevent you from being able to adopt from us. Conditions of the relinquishment and information about the adopter and previously relinquished animal will determine the outcome of the attempt to adopt.
If your application is denied, we will tell you why and allow you to reapply in 3-6 months. Adopters MUST be over 18 years of age. If you are under 18, your parents or legal guardian must submit this form and appear at any and all adoptions.
Certain reptiles and amphibians require permits. You will have to show proof of these permits prior to individual adoptions or that adoption will be denied.
If it is discovered that you have not been truthful on this form, Friends of Scales has the right to decline your application and ban you from adoptions. Please, be truthful.
We look forward to helping you find your perfect pet!
